About The Instructor

Kim is a software developer at heart, thrown into the zero-reusability world of Data Warehousing in the turn of the century. Before Data Warehouse Automation even had a name, Kim had implemented an automated DW tool that went into production as early as 2006, gaining Data Vault support in 2009, including both automatic DV structure and load procedure generation using only a conceptual model as input. Kim is all for not doing unnecessary manual work, and believes in developing automation in order to both make life easier for developers as well as standardizing the automated end result. Kim also enjoys developing manual working methods so that they are consistent and algorithmic to such a degree that they become natural candidates for further automation, and so, in small increments, less truly becomes more.

Kim has worked as a lead consultant in numerous demanding BI and Data Platform projects during his career. He has trained over a hundred professionals.
