An excellent dimensional model, or star schema, is the foundation of an excellent data warehouse. This course provides the opportunity to learn the Kimball Approach of dimensional modeling. Having a great dimensional model is necessary, but not sufficient, to implementing a successful business intelligence/data warehouse system. The course also prepares you to successfully implement your business intelligence / data warehouse program by covering the essential elements of the popular Kimball Approach.

You will learn practical techniques for designing, developing, and implementing your dimensional model, from the basics to the most advanced practices. Concepts are taught through a combination of lectures, case studies, and small group exercises. Our goal is to provide you with the skillset you need to lead a dimensional modeling effort at your organization or participate in the system’s successful implementation.
