Data Modeling and Process Modeling

DATA MODELING
 
Data Modeling  Essentials
 
Duration - 2 Days
 
Data modeling is a set of analysis and design techniques used by analysts and designers to move from understanding the business data environment (the real world, "as-is" situation) to logical data models (the requirements for the "to-be" system) to physical data models (the design view of the data for the relational database) to physical data structures (the actual databases that hold the business data). Relational databases underlie many, if not most, information systems. Effectively structuring relational data enables optimal databases.
 
This seminar provides the concepts, specific techniques, and practice in modeling relational data from the business view to create a logical data model (data requirements). With this practical knowledge, participants will be able to effectively model their data either manually or by using a data modeling tool.  Note: this course is independent of any specific tools, but the concepts can be applied using any of them. Attendees will complete exercises manually to practice the concepts presented in the course.
