OVERVIEW OF DATA MODELING

This informational (not skill-building) seminar presents a complete overview of the three levels of data model which are typically used to manage data in a progressive enterprise: Conceptual Data Model, Logical Data Model, and Physical Data Model. The context in which each of these types of models are built is discussed, along with the purpose, form, and content of each type of model. All terms associated with each type of data model are defined; the different types of diagrams and diagram symbols used in each type of data model are presented, and the typical sequential steps followed in building each type of data model are also described. Within each type of model, example diagrams and definitions for each different type of artifact illustrate the typical level of detail and rigor sought for each model. The way that a modeling dictionary/repository would be used to document each type of model, and keep them properly related is shown. The profound value of rigorously modeling data, and preserving data models is clearly communicated.

Due to the amount of material covered, this seminar does not have workshops to build usable skills.
