INTEGRATED PROCESS AND DATA MODELING

As enterprises build shared, subject-oriented, and flexible databases, the same principles which make normalization of data so necessary apply equally well to the design of automated transactions (processes). Well-normalized data has very robust stability over time, is sharable by all business processes, is easy to maintain, easy to use, and is easy to change when necessary, and is not redundant. Functionally-normalized transactions (no two do the same work) exhibit exactly the same benefits. When the data modeling discipline is coupled with its complementary transaction modeling discipline, the results are astonishingly beneficial to the enterprise: databases and programs which are extremely stable, consistent, non-redundant, sharable by all enterprise processes, and quick, easy and inexpensive to change when necessary: in short, the complete fulfillment of managing information as an enterprise resource.

This skill-building seminar is the grandaddy of the WGS&A seminar offerings: a combination of the Conceptual Data Modeling, Logical and Physical Data Modeling and Modeling and Implementing Normalized Transactions seminars, presented in a realistic, completely coordinated and synchronized step-by-step Conceptual, Logical, and Physical Data and Transaction Modeling sequence interleaving process/transaction modeling with data modeling at each level of detail. This is not only the best way to do this work, it also happens to be by far the fastest and cheapest way as well!
