What is Dimensional Modelling?

Dimensional Modelling is an approach to  make it easier and faster to store, read, summarize and analyse information in a data warehouse.    The concept of Dimensional Modelling was developed by Ralph Kimball  and made famous in the book ‘The Data Warehouse Toolkit’ (Kimball/Ross, 2013) that established a whole new vocabulary including “facts” and “dimensions”.

Attendees of this two-day course will learn the tried and tested Kimball techniques for designing robust dimensional models to support enterprise decision making. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of dimensional modelling that they can apply directly to their workplace projects.
