The course starts with an introduction to data warehousing, various concepts and methods. Furthermore, we go into the data modeling, different techniques and concepts. The aim of the course is to give participants a basic understanding of the design, development and use of dimensional data models.

We are going further into the requirement specifications, user experience and other factors that are relevant to creating viable solutions

In addition, we are planning to talk about the prerequisites for success in the projects, and how to manage risk. Syllabus presented with the aim to demystify rather than scientific do.  The course material is in English, but teaching in Swedish. Can be conducted in English on request.
