Big data, the newest addition to the strategic direction of data warehousing, will be under the spotlight when data warehousing and business intelligence (BI) guru, Ralph Kimball, presents in SA.
ITWeb will host Kimball at the Building a Data Warehouse for the Decade Ahead event, in Johannesburg, on 19 November.
Kimball is the founder of the Kimball Group and author of several best-selling books on data warehousing, including “The Data Warehouse Toolkit”. For the past three decades, he has been the data warehousing/BI industry’s thought leader on the dimensional approach, and has trained thousands of students. The Kimball dimensional approach has become the de facto DW/BI industry standard.
