The purpose of this Developmental Model is to create an efficient and effective generalized DW model (based on Data Vault 2.0 technology standards) and validate prototype implementation for a Corrections Environment that will provide efficient functional Business Intelligence to the End User. In Database Systems understanding the problem at hand and being able to use the right tool is an essential practice. State Departments of Corrections are often the last agencies to receive funding for technology based on the attitude of a society forced to provide technology based services for prisons. A Correctional System in itself is an ever changing Eco-system and will benefit from the use of a Data Vault System that is able to provide efficient Business Intelligence that is able to change with the environment.
