Introduce yourselves!

New to the user group? Say hello here!


Nice to see a free and open resource for discussing Data Vault topics. I work in data and analytics technologies and have had a hand in data modelling for a long time. I wear both hats when it comes to data vault, implementation & modelling.

Thanks to the dbtvault crew for setting this up!

Anyone can reach me at Linkedin

Hello there!
So happy to have a place for Q & A and various discussions. I dipped my toes into the Data Vault methodology (or is it got my fingers crushed?) about 3 years. Currently, my team is building a new data platform from scratch, and Data Vault is a big part of that initiative. Looking forward to learning from this community

I can be found on linkedin, dbt slack, dbtvault slack, snowflake slack. Always happy to connect!

thank you,


Welcome Veronika!

Glad to have you - feel free to ask away!

Hi :slight_smile: It’s good to see a more permanent forum after the last couple of years of “in person” chats.
I’m a consultant data architect working with UK public (and used-to-be-public) sector data, and all the wonderful (what do you mean everything’s an excel sheet) issues that brings :stuck_out_tongue:
I wear all the hats, although my current thrust is towards the governance and meta-data management end.
Feel free to DM me, look me up on LinkedIn, or follow me at my blog site.

Welcome to the community Keith!

Thank you for joining.

Welcome Will! We hope this will become a valuable resource and that we’ll see you back frequently!

Hi Keith, welcome to the forum!

We are new to DV. Nice to be part of a forum where we can learn more about DV2 modelling and best practices. Currently, we are moving from on premise data platform to a cloud data platform. With that also moving from old modelling practice to DV2 model.

Welcome to the forum!

Greetings to all!

I am Noel Cruz, a relatively recent “convert” to Data Vault, and I am extremely excited and eager about ALL of it.

I first learned about DV2 in February, 2021, when I was invited to join a project where I work (Optum) to develop a ML/AI platform for our internal systems. I was so intrigued that I pursued and received my CDVP2 on 12/30/2021 (just one week ago today).

I am also on LinkedIn, as many who have posted before me are as well.

Welcome to the forum Noel!

I’m Tamara, and I’ve been on Data Vault projects for various government departments in New Zealand for a few years now. I have often found that between source system data structures, business usage, and whatever platform and tooling we’ve been required to use, Vault standards can end up somewhat… bent. A lot of the DV advice available online is either extremely theoretical and idealized, or else very specific to whatever tool the author supports/is trying to sell you. :grinning:

I’m hoping this forum can be used for sound-boarding practical solutions as well as discussing the evolving theory. Cheers!


Hello Tamara!

Welcome to the forum and thanks for joining!

I cannot agree more!

Hi all
Just joined - i’ve been leading a DV-based project for the last year or so but haven’t been very hands on, but have been reading Dan’s and Patrick’s books. A long time ago before the abomination of hadoop I was a good dimensional modeller and I like what I see with dv2.0 and am singing its praises. I’m sure there are a bunch of things on my last project that we would do differently with hindsight so great to be here to learn some more practical tips.
