Benefits of the full Haystack Essentials course

So, you're already using tags in your data platform - what else is there to know?

Well possibly a great deal more than you imagined!!

  • Are you really happy with what a Conjunct really is?
  • Are you confident with using your Protos?

Our training guides you through all the ESSENTIAL parts of using Project Haystack - so you understand the real differences between tags for entities, flows, and operational data!

Project Haystack 4.0 does much more of the hard work for you - simply by using the right tags to do the job! So don't just pick what you think is best - LEARN WHY some tags may do more for you than others.

  • We explain the official terminology (ontologies, taxonomies..)
  • We take you through the official libraries
  • We define the relationships between tags
  • We help you build inherent meaning with example models

All with practical exercises, data model examples, and tutorial videos.

But wait... there's more!

We also reward your training efforts with a JOURNAL for long term access to the course reference materials after the course is completed!
