KU provides the highest quality and most practical education consistent with KU instructors books and extensive experience in the dimensional approach. You ll learn from the best in the business. The KU instructors literally wrote the books; why settle for anything less than the original inventors and authors of these concepts! All class content is vendor neutral, with the exception of our Microsoft-centric courses. MARGY ROSS Margy Ross is President of the Kimball Group. She has focused exclusively on decision support and data warehousing for more than twenty years, specializing in program/project strategy, business requirements analysis, and dimensional modeling. Since helping over 100 large organizations with their data warehouses, she remains convinced that business acceptance is the true measure of data warehouse success. In addition to her consulting activities, Margy teaches the core Kimball University public classes and on-sites. She co-authored The Data Warehouse Toolkit (2nd Edition), The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit (2nd Edition) and The Kimball Group Reader and regularly writes the Data Warehouse Designer column for Intelligent enterprise. Before launching the Kimball Group, Margy co-founded DecisionWorks Consulting, Inc. in 1994 with Bob Becker and Nancy Rinn. She had previously worked at Metaphor for ten years in a variety of consulting and management positions, including responsibility for Metaphor s Customer Database Marketing business unit. Margy began her career with Arthur Andersen (now Accenture) Consulting. She graduated with a BS in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern University. WARREN THORNTHWAITE Warren Thornthwaite has been building data warehousing and business intelligence systems since Warren worked at Metaphor for eight years, where he managed the consulting organization and implemented many major data warehouse systems. After Metaphor, Warren managed the enterprise-wide data warehouse development at Stanford University. He then co-founded InfoDynamics LLC, a data warehouse consulting firm, with Joy Mundy. Warren joined up with WebTV to help build a world class, multi-terabyte customer focused data warehouse before returning to consulting. In addition to designing data warehouses for a range of industries, Warren has extensive experience helping clients develop scalable, practical information access architectures. He holds an MBA in Decision Sciences from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, and a BA in Communications Studies from the University of Michigan. He co-authored and The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit (2nd Edition), The Microsoft Data Warehouse Toolkit (2nd Edition) and The Kimball Group Reader.

3 Why attend The data warehouse and business intelligence (DW/BI) system continues to be one of the most organizationally complex and technically interesting IT projects. This Kimball University course prepares you to successfully implement your DW/BI environment by distilling the essential elements of the popular Kimball approach as described in the bestselling book, The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit (2nd Edition). This course is packed with specific techniques, guidance and advice from initial project planning through deployment and maintenance. It is taught through a combination of lectures, class exercises, small group workshops, and individual problem solving. Data Warehouse / Business Intelligence (DW/BI) Lifecycle in Depth is appropriate for anyone who is new to DW/BI and wants to learn a holistic set of best practices from the beginning, or for anyone who has been through a couple projects and wants to refine their methods to better align with the proven, broadly-accepted Kimball approach. Venue In the very heart of the city centre, the Sheraton Hotel Stockholm is perfectly located for anyone wishing to connect to the Swedish capital. Two minutes from the Central Station and just across the bridge from Stockholm's delightful Old Town. SHERATON STOCKHOLM HOTEL Tegelbacken 6, Box Stockholm Sweden T: F: E: W: Who should attend This course is designed for all major roles on a DW/BI project, including project managers, business analysts, data modelers and database administrators, architects, and ETL or BI application designers/developers.
