Data Vault Advanced Objects: Self Links and Hierarchical Links

Data Vault Advanced Objects: Self Links and Hierarchical Links

The Datavault Builder is automating every aspect of  your Data Warehouse. This includes the implementation of advanced Data Vault objects like self links and hierarchical links.

  • create self links to express same-as relations
  • create hierarchical links to model hierarchies

We use the concept of alias hubs to link a hub to itself. This gives the relation an explicit context and makes clear which end of a link is an employee and which end is the manager.

Create Self Links for realizing same-as connections

Create hierarchical links to model hierarchies.

Use alias hubs to make connections explicit.
