Speaker BIO: William (Bill) Inmon is knows as the father of "Data Warehousing" a term he originated in Calgary at one of the oil companies. His top down approach to achieve a golden record state for the corporation is a best practice. Many organizations however take an incremental approach and use Kimball's bottom up approach which then often ends up fragmented, and retains multiple versions of the truth. During the past 15+ Bill has been focused on Streaming Data Analytics. He recently published textbook (62+ published texts) is called "Building the Data Lakehouse" and can be purchased from Technics Publications: Building the Data Lakehouse – Technics Publications
