Dimensional Modeling: The Kimball Method
Copenhagen, Denmark - 18-20 May 2020
Well-designed data warehouses
Excellence in dimensional modeling is critical to a well-designed data warehouse/business intelligence system, regardless of your architecture. This course gives you the opportunity to learn directly from the industry’s dimensional modeling thought leader, Margy Ross.
The Data Warehouse Toolkit, 3rd Edition (Kimball/Ross, 2013) established an extensive portfolio of dimensional techniques and vocabulary, including conformed dimensions, slowly changing dimensions, junk dimensions, mini-dimensions, bridge tables, periodic and accumulating snapshot fact tables, and the list goes on. The word “Kimball” is synonymous with dimensional modeling.
In this intensive class, you will learn practical dimensional modeling techniques covering basic to advanced patterns and best practices. Concepts are taught through a combination of lectures, class exercises, small group workshops, and individual problems, based on real-world industry scenarios. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of dimensional modeling so they can confidently apply the techniques in their workplace.
About the instructor, Margy Ross
Margy Ross and Ralph Kimball developed and co-taught Kimball University’s dimensional modeling classes for nearly 20 years. The two shared dimensional modeling concepts with over 11,000 students. They co-authored The Dimensional Modeling Toolkit, The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit, and edited their colleagues’ Design Tips and articles to produce The Kimball Group Reader.
Margy served as Kimball University’s primary onsite and conference dimensional modeling instructor, teaching an additional 9,500 students. Since Ralph’s retirement, Margy has continued to consult and teach dimensional modeling best practices throughout the United States and internationally. She’s returning to teach public classes in Scandinavia for the first time since 2015.
