SEMINAR ABSTRACT AND BIOGRAPHY

This seminar is the definitive tutorial guide that will overview how to integrate both structured and unstructured information that permeates throughout every organization. It will show in a simple straight forward fashion how to tap into the rich sources of data that need to be managed in order to truly capture your enterprise data assets, from one of the World's Leading Information Management Experts. In order to architect your organization to optimize your data warehousing and business intelligence capabilities, you need to capture and organize all your enterprise information. A wealth of invaluable information exists in unstructured textual form, but organizations have found it difficult or impossible to access and utilize it. This is changing rapidly: new approaches finally make it possible to glean useful knowledge from virtually any collection of unstructured data. William H. Inmon - the father of data warehousing -- introduces the next data revolution: unstructured data management. Bill Inmon will cover all you need to know to make unstructured data work for your organization. You'll learn how to bring it into your existing structured data environment, leverage existing analytical infrastructure, and implement textual analytic processing technologies to solve new problems and uncover new opportunities. Bill Inmon will introduce breakthrough techniques covered in no other seminar, including the powerful role of textual integration, new ways to integrate textual data into data warehouses, and new SQL techniques for reading and analyzing text, whether in emails or spreadsheets, WORD documents or Communities of Interest (COI) web data. Bill will also present real-world case studies that are indispensable to every organization trying to make sense of a large body of unstructured text: Program Managers, executives, project leaders, data warehouse Managers and staff, architects, consultants, database designers, data modelers, DBAs, researchers, and end users alike will all benefit from this one day comprehensive overview on the subject.

Best known as the "Father of Data Warehousing", Bill Inmon has become the most prolific and well known author worldwide in the data warehousing and business intelligence arena. In addition to authoring more than 50 books and 650 articles, Bill holds 7 software patents, and has been a monthly columnist with the Business Intelligence Network, EIM Institute and Data Management Review. Bill was named by Computerworld as one of the ten most influential people in the first 40 years of the computer profession. He is the creator of the Government Information Factory, a set of information architectures for the federal sector, in addition to having authored the Corporate Information Factory, a collection of ground-breaking methodologies for the corporate world. Having 35 years of experience in database technology and data warehouse design, he is known globally for his seminars on developing data warehouses and information architectures. Bill has been a keynote speaker in demand for numerous computing associations and industry conferences and trade shows. Bill has developed ETL technologies that allow an organization to move various types of unstructured information into a data warehouse and consolidate it with structured data into a single shared data store. He has provided a methodology that has shown how to accomplish "data integration" across both worlds of structured data (e.g. table-driven and file-driven) and unstructured (e.g. notes, documents, pictures, voice and multi-media and various web-driven data formats).

Bill Inmon has an extensive entrepreneurial background. Prior to co-founding Inmon Data Systems in 2003, he founded and took public Prism Solutions in 1991. In 1995, Bill went on to found Pine Cone Systems, later named Ambeo. Bill Inmon has consulted with Fortune 1000 clients and leading IT executives on Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence, and Database Management. Bill recently announced DW2.0 - the architecture of the next generation of data warehousing. In 1999, Bill created a website to educate professionals and decision makers about data warehousing and the Corporate Information Factory, www.inmoncif.com, which contains much of Mr. Inmon's written work and related material, including methodologies, technical white papers, articles, and data models. In 2003, Bill co-founded Inmon Data Systems, Inc. (www.inmondatasystems.com) and created the Government Information Factory, an architectural blueprint for building government information systems. This "go-to" portal for government IT systems can be found at www.inmongif.com.

SEMINAR ABSTRACT AND BIOGRAPHY

Data Warehousing has taken hold throughout the business world and is providing great insight into business performance, and timely information to allow decision makers to enhance this performance. There are similarities between designing databases for operational systems and data warehouses, but there are also significant differences. Organizations have skilled technology personnel that have been modeling data and building databases for years in support of the business. How can the current skills of these technologists be leveraged to produce an effective data warehouse? What are the differences between data modeling for a production environment vs. a data warehousing environment? How should historical data be maintained in the data warehouse? What role do ER models and dimensional models play in data warehouse development? Are snowflake schemas appropriate? What database design options facilitate end user access?

This one day seminar will address these questions and others related to designing databases for your data warehouse. Seminar topics include:

  • Modeling Business Data for the Warehouse
  • Evaluating the Quality of the Data
  • Preparing the Data for the Warehouse
  • Designing the Data Staging Area
  • Maintaining Historical Data
  • Star Schema Design (The Kimball Technique)
  • Summarizing the Data
  • Designing the Database with the End User In Mind

This tutorial highlights all aspects of Data Warehousing and Data Marts from Architecture, Design, Data Modeling to Warehouse Management Roles and Responsibilities, Data Accessing and Reporting. Additional Topics considered include:

  1. Data Warehousing Strategy supporting the Business Vision
  2. Requirements Gathering and Gap Analysis
  3. Information Architecture
  4. Source to Target Mapping Strategies
  5. Dealing with High Volume Data Warehousing
  6. Managing Sub-Type/Super-Types and Hierarchies
  7. Data Quality Issues and Data Element Evaluations
  8. Identifying Trusted Sources of Information
  9. Managing and Controlling Supporting MetaData
  10. Integration Schemes and Extract / Transform / Load Methods

Practical approaches and techniques are contained throughout the presentation on the business, technical, and organizational aspects of data warehousing. The seminar format is very interactive with attendee questions encouraged throughout the day, and attendee experiences shared as time permits.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This seminar is intended for business and IT Management, Project Directors, Data Warehousing, Data Architecture or Database Management executives and staff, IT Managers and technicians responsible for planning, design and implementation, Data Stewards and Custodians, Architects, Metadata personnel, and anyone looking for a clear concise overview of data management and architecture guidelines relating to Data Warehousing.
