About the event

This course is intended to cover all the 6 ELM artifacts which will guide you towards the Ensemble Logical Model (ELM) and the ELM itself. Topics covered include understanding the concept behind the Ensemble Logical Model, the modeling requirements and artifacts that drive this approach.. We will include a brief introduction into the different Ensemble patterns like Data Vault, Anchor and Focal Point to learn why this approach benefits all.  With the guidance and exercises along all 6 ELM artifacts students will experience how to start from a business case and end up with a fully modeled and documented Ensemble Logical Model. Which in itself is ready to be implemented on any technical platform – which can be a physical data warehouse, a virtual data platform, a data lake or in a data mesh architecture.

This course consists of three (3) components: the two day classroom course (online or on site), the online video lessons and the course material.
