About

About me:

Roelant Vos has been active in Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence for 15 years and is working for Allianz Global Assistance Australia as a General Manager – Business and Insights. Passionate about improving quality and speed of delivery through model-driven design and development automation he has been working with hybrid modelling techniques such as Data Vault for many years.

About the blog:

The main drive for this blog is what I refer to as ‘inspired laziness’; the consolidation and exploration of effort-reducing ideas regarding ETL, Data Warehousing and to some extent Business Intelligence. The goal is to describe and extend a flexible architecture for the true Enterprise Data Warehouse that will minimize maintenance and development. The fundamental underlying concept is ‘Model Driven Design’: generating / automating ETL, enforcing consistency (and why) and improving maintenance for a future proof management information system, all flowing out of the information models itself.

Of course I try to update content as frequently as possible but depending on work pressure these updates may be done at varying intervals. But even if things are quiet for a while, I’m always continuing to work on the perfect next-generation EDW on the various projects I’m involved in.

This blog only contains my own thoughts and opinions. It is not endorsed by Allianz Global Assistance nor does it constitute any official communication of Allianz Global Assistance.

I’ll try to keep everything as practical as possible and provide working samples wherever possible. Feel free to join in on the discussion!
