Data is used more and more in businesses in everyday routines. Thus, more and more companies are looking for ways to find efficient ways to harvest data and make sense of it. Data Vault is one such model invented that have taken data integration to another level. The data integration architecture provides better robust standards and definitional methods. It unites information to make sense and is becoming the catalyst for innovation in business operation and superior business outcomes.
Data Vault is a database modelling method that provides long-term historical storage of data. The storage is created from data that is coming in from multiple operational systems. The data architecture enables businesses to look at historical data and look into data issues. This includes tracing of data, auditing, loading speed and resilience to change.
In simple words, a Data Vault is a historical tracking data architecture which is detail-oriented and uniquely linked set of normalised tables—the tables; which support one or more functional areas of business. There are three basic table types in a Data Vault as Hubs (business keys), Links (associations), and SAT (descriptive attributes). The model has designed to give the ability to be resilient to change in the business environment. With the separation of business keys, the model separates structural information from descriptive attributes, thus confronting the problem of change in the environment. With this, all problems involved with upstream business structures, systems, or rule changes, inability to provide consistent data, or requirements for new systems integration solutions are successfully solved. The model offers a highly adaptable data structure for businesses and ensures better data integrity while enabling parallel loading as much as possible.
Accommodating historical data, auditing, and data tracking, Data Vault is both a data modelling technique and methodology. The technology defines the ontology of an organisation describing its business domain and relationships within the organisation. It ingests 100% of the source data all the time and makes no distinction between the good, the bad and the ugly data.
The model simplifies the data ingestion process in a great deal. It is capable of historical tracking of all the data and all aspects of it. It’s flexible in adapting to design principles & structures to optimise tracking performance at any point in time without any advance planning. It provides the perfect solution for auditability and traceability requirements of all the data in the data warehouse- which is a new demand of the business world. The technology also ensures seamless integrations with Big Data technologies as it has designed to store huge amounts of data easily.
At Cerexio, we believe that a good Data Vault solution should be developed with an agile methodology offering the best practices and high-quality standards for automation perfection for your data and big data problems. Working throughout the Data Vault lifecycle, paying attention to every little detail our data warehousing teams has delivered many Data Vault solutions for organisations across many industries. From design and development, deployment, documentation and operation, to automation, we guide our clients to make the optimal choices for modelling through continuous guidance, recommendations and consultations. With the aim to deliver organisations greater flexibility, scalability and change within its data infrastructure, our Data Vault solutions are developed for maximum performance at a minimum cost. We evolved from the Hadoop Distributed File System, and we are always ahead in the next generation Data Vault system.
We have tremendous exposures on Hadoop Distributed file system and managing more than 100 nodes clusters in Hybrid cloud environments. Cerexio is having various type of other solutions for completing the full pipeline from generating the data (e.g. Axon Message Broker), data lake, data vault, and analysing at anywhere anytime (Digital Twin, Condition Monitoring, MES). Cerexio is your ultimate partner for creating & managing your data vault solutions.
Whether you need a Data Vault solution for your embedded analytics solution, predictive maintenance solution or cloud infrastructure solution, our Data Vault experts will ensure you a reliable solution for the best and hassle-free performance. Helping you select the right technologies and tools we’ll guide you throughout the project so you can receive the best return for your money.
