IBM’s Norma Mullin is presenting a webcast next week titled, “Using What’s New in InfoSphere Data Architect to Accelerate Design for Data Warehouse and BI”.  Norma, whose official IBM title is Consulting IT Specialist/Client Technical Specialist, has worked extensively with customers implementing IDA and authored a whitepaper on migrating from ERWIN to IDA.  The webcast is scheduled to run from 1:00pm to 2:00pm Eastern time this coming Thursday, October 14th.  To register, go to:  http://bit.ly/bq4U1J

InfoSphere Data Architect is a data design solution to model, relate, and develop data assets. New features will help accelerate the design of data warehouses, automatically discover and create data warehouse schema, and enable the use of standardized logical models to centralize data definitions across the enterprise.

What you will learn: • Classify dimensions, create dimensional objects and analyze dimensional models in InfoSphere Data Architect • Work with dimensional physical models • How InfoSphere Data Architect integrates with Cognos and InfoSphere Warehouse
