What is Dimensional Modelling?

Excellence in dimensional modelling remains the keystone of a well-designed data warehouse/business intelligence system, regardless of your architecture.

The word β€œKimball” is synonymous with dimensional modelling. The Data Warehouse Toolkit (Kimball/Ross, 2013) established an extensive portfolio of dimensional techniques and vocabulary, including conformed dimensions, slowly changing dimensions, junk dimensions, mini-dimensions, bridge tables, periodic and accumulating snapshot fact tables, and the list goes on.
