Workshop: Agile dimensional modelling
Lawrence Corr, director, DecisionOne Consulting
In this interactive half-day workshop, Lawrence Corr will expand on the collaborative modelling techniques introduced in his earlier presentation on agile BI design. Attendees will have the opportunity to practise these techniques in team exercises.

It will include:
 
BEAM (Business Event Analysis & Modelling): agile dimensional modelling techniques for telling data stories using the 7Ws (who, what, when, where, how many, why and how)
Visual thinking techniques and inclusive notation for engaging BI stakeholders and developers in the co-creation of BI designs
Telling data stories to get stakeholders thinking dimensionally and capturing their own BI requirements
Modelling by example, not abstraction; using data story themes to fully describe data requirements with minimal documentation
Using data stories and the 7Ws to promote the use of proven dimensional design patterns
Lawrence Corr

In addition to the workshop notes and exercises, attendees will receive a copy of Agile Data Warehouse Design by Lawrence Corr and Jim Stagnitto.
