Bitemporal

  • Or the battle announcement of the incoming interface

    The BI Center of Competence (CoC) has decided to use bitemporal data storage when setting up a new data warehouse for one of the business units of the fictitious company FastChageCo™.

    BI CoC is well advanced in the bitemporal implementation of Data Vault database objects as well as loading patterns. The already connected systems via formally defined incoming interfaces have worked without problems so far.

  • If everything would happen at the same time, there would be no need to store historic data. We, the consumers of data, would know each and everything at the same instant. Beside all the other philosophical impacts, if time wouldn’t exists, is data still necessary?

    (Un)fortunately time exists and data architects, data modelers and developers have to deal with it in the world of information technology.

    In this category about temporal data I will collect all my blogposts about this fancy topic.

  • OK, for those of you who just want to grab a promotion code... I'll make it short 😂:
