The website will also host both a business channel and a technical channel to assist members in the understanding and use of Data Vault 2.0 throughout an organization.
“Communities are powerful entities. The Data Vault Alliance will create an impactful network of like-minded professionals that can support each other in the journey to learn and build agile, scalable and sustainable business intelligence programs,” said Dan Linstedt, founder and chief executive of the Data Vault Alliance. “It has long been my goal to extend the reach of the collaboration we witness each year on-site at the World Wide Data Vault Consortium to more data vault practitioners in an online venue.”
