Data Vault Data Modeler Advanced (CDVDM-A) and Certification


The goal of this course is to enable data modelers and architects to make the most informed and best possible modeling decisions when establishing their specific modeling pattern in their organization.

The focus of this course is modeling. In particular this course is focused on providing students a deeper understanding of the various options available within the Data Vault Ensemble modeling approach.

Target audience:
This course if for data modelers, data architects, information modelers, and other data warehousing and business intelligence professionals who work with the design of conceptual, logical or physical data. Ideally certified CDVDM modelers, those actively working with Data Vault or those who have spent time working with data warehouse modeling ensembles.

Students attending this course should be comfortable with the Data Vault modeling approach and the broader concepts of Ensemble Modeling and they should have obtained CDVDM certification prior the course.

This course provides the unique opportunity to leverage decades of Data Vault modeling experience from around the World to gain a deeper understanding of Data Vault modeling and the impact of various different patterns. It also provides a venue for connecting with other modelers to share experiences, ideas, models, challenges, discoveries, and to work together towards a common better understanding of ensemble modeling.


This course follows an example-driven approach based on over a dozen real-life modeling cases. For each modeling scenario there is a business case that leads to a set of alternatives. Through interactive group analysis and discussions, and drawing on the experiences of the students in the class, the various alternatives are uncovered, considered, often ranked, and ultimately classified and categorized based on best practice considerations, pros & cons, and how appropriate they might be given the specific business scenarios.

Day One
  • Modeling Events (and the role of links)

  • Modeling the Shuttle for Fuzzy Integration (dealing with realistic integration)
  • Modeling the SAT BOK (alternate, degenerate keys, etc.)
  • Modeling for Personally Identifiable Information and Privacy (PID)
  • Architecture - Defining and Deploying the RAW and BDV (establish approach)
  • Ensemble Logical Form (ELF) and Virtualization (in memory)
  • Modeling Automation - the Play Book (how and when to automate)
