Oct Chapter Meeting

Creativity, fun, and team work – an Aussie perspective

Oct 23rd 2014 (Thur)

Sheraton Bellevue Hotel
Time: 6 - 8:30pm

Registration here

I am sure that America’s founding fathers had to be creative, had to pull together, and needed a sense of humor to get through the tough times. And I suspect that this spirit is still alive and well in America, with demanding jobs such as delivery of technology to parts of Alaska. Australia has a number of challenges, too, and I have been privileged to have had opportunities to work with some inspiring, creative and colorful larrikins (that’s Aussie slang for a “harmless, cheeky, and somewhat irreverent” person). The background setting for this session has its roots in personal experiences collected while providing IT services in some great projects spread across Australia, and is also peppered with a few personal stories. Hopefully these yarns will entertain, but more so, will also encourage participants to: 

  • seek opportunities for creativity in their work and personal lives, 
  • have fun along the way, and 
  • strive to “cross the line together”, where the team ethics seek to treat all as valued and respected members. 

Oh, and by the way, the principles will be briefly applied to our careers as data professionals.


What You Will Learn:
A smorgasbord of real-life stories, many reflecting the demands of delivering technology to remote parts of Australia, will hopefully not only entertain but also inspire and challenge participants to leap outside of their comfort zone, team up with the variety of personalities life presents, and have fun along the way.

Oct Half Day Workshop

Vaulting to Value with Patterns - Business Value via a “Universal Data Vault” architecture

Achieving productivity & agility by combining Data Model patterns & Data Vault patterns

Oct 24th 2014 (Friday)

Sheraton Bellevue Hotel
Time: 8 - 12 pm

Summary

There are enormous potential benefits in leveraging the wisdom of published and proven data model patterns to quickly create robust and extensible enterprise views of your information. Likewise, the advantages of Data Vault (DV), and its underlying patterns, are gaining well-deserved recognition. But are these two pattern-based movements likely to clash, or can they be peacefully and productively combined? 

This session provides a real-world perspective on how an enterprise quickly and painlessly (well, almost painlessly!) reaped the benefits of both pattern movements. The presenter created a “Universal Data Vault” pattern that supported long-term strategies while delivering tangible value in the short term, without trashing existing software investments.

What You Will Learn

Based on a recent, real-world case study, a perspective will be gained as to how (1) published data model patterns, and (2) data vault architectures, can be combined to deliver "quality at speed" to an organization.
