Best Practices for the Hadoop Data Warehouse

EDW 101 for Hadoop Professionals

Online Webinar | May 29, 2014 | 10AM PT / 1PM ET

The enormous legacy of EDW experience and best practices can be adapted to the unique capabilities of the Hadoop environment. In this webinar, in a point-counterpoint format, Dr. Kimball will describe standard data warehouse best practices including the identification of dimensions and facts, managing primary keys, and handling slowly changing dimensions (SCDs) and conformed dimensions. Eli Collins, Chief Technologist at Cloudera, will describe how each of these practices actually can be implemented in Hadoop.
