- Title:
Build a Modern Data Warehouse from disparate sources with Apache Spark and Power BI

- Abstract:
Oscar Garcia outlines that a data warehouse (DW) is a core component of business intelligence and a central data repository for different sources. This poses many challenges as the schema definition for those sources may be completely different from one another.
In this presentation, we discuss how to create a data warehouse model that can support data from multiple systems. Mr. Garcia shows how to build a dimensional model which can enable us to import the data with different shapes into a data warehouse. We then create processes to transform and load the data using Apache Spark. We finally use Power BI to visualize the data from our data warehouse and Spark.

- Learning Objectives:

* Challenges when using disparate data sources (different models)
* Define a common model to support the different model shapes (Star Schema)
* Apache Spark Overview
* Strategy for loading the different data-sets into the common model
* Data analysis and visualization with Power BI
