I always consider the presentations valuable, but they are just conversation starters for the real value of the networking and collaborative dialogue that permeates the conference every year. Thanks!
It was awesome to meet so many smart people at one point. The presentations contained great success stories and covered all topics around Data Vault, from delivering value in an agile fashion, over NoSQL and real time architectures up to advanced modeling and text analysis. This all happened at a beautiful location with sponsored lunch and dinner every day where interesting conversations took place. I will attend the next WWDVC for sure!
I came to know about Data Vault just after WWDVC 2017. Since then I've had the pleasure of working with Kent Graziano through my relationship with Snowflake, I've had the privilege of being trained by Mike Olschimke, and I've built a production Data Vault with WhereScape. Over the past year, I've had to propose, justify, and defend the Data Vault architecture and methodology more times than I can recall. After a while it's hard not to question my conviction.
This week I've met vendors who believe in Data Vault enough to pour time and money into tools that support it. I've heard from many architects who have realized tangible value from Data Vaults, I've met several people who built successful companies around Data Vault, and I've seen what happens when fundamental principles of data modeling are ignored.
The tone of the conference is kind and supportive. Dan encourages presenters to showcase "the good, the bad, and the ugly" which means we get to see success and struggle.
I've met dozens of delightful and intelligent people this week and made connections that will last my career. For anyone building a Data Vault or thinking about it, especially if you feel like you are alone, I strongly recommend you come to WWDVC.
I was tremendously impressed by the organization at this conference. I saw all the talks and they were all of high quality, had good variety of subject matter and I enjoyed it.
Stoweflake is an exceptional venue, in a stunning environment in the mountains of Vermont.
The vendors who turned up were awesome, they didn't try to push anything, they just wanted everyone to feel like it was a community in which they were part of and contributors to. They were helpful and very generous with their time as well. I came across a couple of vendors who I'd never heard of and will do more investigation on their products in the coming weeks but being aware they existing is important as a freelance consultant when you need to advise of products to fill gaps in the tech stacks.
I personally met several attendees who were very knowledgeable, as well as others investigating use of DV and I think everyone got a lot out of attending.
I've picked up on a couple of topics I've not paid too much attention to in the past in my dv consulting projects and now realize there are some ways to improve which I hadn't considered.
It was an awesome opportunity to connect with the community and share our experiences. Really valuable lessons learned. I'm inspired to tackle future projects in a different way incorporating the most recent and cutting edge best practices.
I truly love Data Vault. I definitely want to learn more, and leverage it in my organization. It was great hear and meet so many experienced practitioners at the conference. Dan put together a very diverse and experienced group of speakers. It allowed me to see what is possible, and things I can leverage to benefit my organization.
Best conference I have attended.
No other professional conference brings together Data Vault leaders from across the globe to share challenges and success stories, participate in hands-on software demonstrations, and engage in unparalleled networking opportunities. If you are determined to deliver the best data warehouse architecture for your customers, this meeting should be at the top of your annual travel plan.
I really enjoyed my time at the WWDVC conference 2016, both as a speaker as well as an attendant. The sessions and conversations have been very insightful and much fun to experience, and the whole event has been organized flawlessly. Hats off Dan!
If you are interested in, or an expert in Data Vault, this conference is a must. Many of the great presentations showed what was possible with Data Vault, and the friendliness and willingness to share among the participants was great. I also like the relatively small size of the conference, it allowed me to really get to know others. Finally, I was amazed at the heavy turnout from other countries. It shows how committed people are to a concept that works!

Very good experience all together for networking, discussions about DataVault and great presentations from real world use cases.
One of the presenters referenced Lego blocks - they are simple constructs, but can be used powerfully and creatively. I was impressed by the many stories I heard at the conference on how some inspiring individuals had taken the clean, elegant Data Vault components (hubs, links and satellites) and created amazing solutions to business problems. The conference was an eye-opener as to the potential of Data Vault.
WWDVC 2016 was, as expected, an awesome event. Not only are the sessions and keynotes inspiring and practical, I especially appreciated the brainstorming pre-event with certified Data Vault practitioners. That alone was worth the trip.
WWDVC-2016: * Great Presentations
* Wonderful Community * Lovely Location. *If you work with (or you would like to learn about) Data Vault, I can highly recommend this conference. Come in and join the community! Looking forward to next year's WWDVC.
Another Great Event on Data Vault Just Ended Stowe, VT May 28–30, 2015 World Wide Data Vault Consortium 2015 has been organized and facilitated - just like in the previous years - by Dan Linstedt, the inventor of the Data Vault Architecture (DV 1.0) and its extension - Data Vault 2.0. This time - in the picturesque Von Trapp Family Lodge; remember “High on a hill was a lonely goatherd/ Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo…” However, this was no time for yodeling; the conference was packed with great presentations, demos, and discussions. Some of the speakers were industry’s leaders and well-known publishers such as Claudia Imhoff, Ph.D. (bbbt.us), Scott W. Ambler (SA+A), Kent Graziano (The Data Warrior ), and others. There were around 60 data vault practitioners - consultants, vendors, and customers - from at least 7 countries. And, of course, Dan Linstedt, like a mountain eagle, was watching and facilitated the event from the height of his expertise and know-how… This year’s themes were dominated by concept and implementation of Data vault 2.0 – the evolution of the world-renown DV1.0; arguably, 7 out of 10 new EDW’s built in Data Vault “flavor”. Some of the presentations were: • Big Data, NoSQL and DV2.0 Modeling • Temporal Data Warehouse and Data Vault • EDW and Data Marts Virtualization • Event-Driven Real-Time EDW in the Cloud • Agile Big Data Warehousing with DV2.0 • …and much more! I was honored to have the opportunity to present WhereScape Solution for DV 2.0. In this presentation I described what both WhereScape products -3D and RED – have to offer to organizations to build an Information System with Big Data inclusion that is fully compliant with the DV2.0. “Utilizing WhereScape 3D - DW planning tool - in conjunction with WhereScape RED - DW building tool – [WhereScape] provides a complete agile solution for discovering, profiling, planning, building, deploying, managing and renovating data warehouses and data marts” -- Participant I appreciate Dan for giving me another opportunity to speak at his conventions. I would like to participate in future WWDVC events and highly recommend all the Data Warehouse and Business intelligence practitioners, Big Data enthusiasts and Data vault lovers to partake in the future WWDVC symposia as well as consider the crème de la crème Data Vault coaching from Dan Linstedt.
