Full Scale Data Architects at DMZ 2017

As already mentioned in my previous blogpost I will give a talk at the first day of the Data Modeling Zone 2017 about temporal data in the data warehouse.

Another interesting talk will take place on the third day of the DMZ 2017: Martijn Evers will give a full day session about Full Scale Data Architects.

Ahead of this session there will be a Kickoff Event sponsored by I-Refact, data42morrow and TEDAMOH: At 6 pm on Tuesday, 24. October, after the second day of the Data Modeling Zone 2017, all interested people can meet up and join the launch of the German chapter of Full Scale Data Architects.

Global Data Summit

I am very pleased to be speaking at the Global Data Summit in Golden, Colorodo this year. I am talking about one of my favorite topics: Temporal data in the data warehouse, especially in connection with data vault and dimensional modeling. The title is:

Bitemporal modeling for the Agile Data Warehouse

The talk is a 5x5 presentation, that is 5 slides in 5 minutes. Afterwards, the participants have the opportunity to discuss the topic intensively with me in a 90-minute whiteboard session.

Fact-Oriented Modeling (FOM) - Family, History and Differences

Months ago I talked to Stephan Volkmann, the student I mentor, about possibilities to write a seminar paper. One suggestion was to write about Information Modeling, namely FCO-IM, ORM2 and NIAM, siblings of the Fact-Orietented Modeling (FOM) family. In my opinion, FOM is the most powerful technique for building conceptual information models, as I wrote in a previous blogpost.

    Fact-Oriented Modeling (FOM) stands for a family of fact-oriented conceptual modeling methods. FOM facilitates easier communication about the conceptual model between the modeler and the domain expert by verbalization of concrete examples in the language of the domain expert, a design process as a guide for creating the model and the focus on elementary facts. The most popular methods in this family are Cognition Enhanced Natural Language Information Analysis Method (CogNIAM), Second Generation Object Role Modeling (ORM 2) and Fully Communication Oriented Information Modeling (FCO-IM).
