"Introduction to Data Modeling"

by Steve Hoberman, DMC


Data modeling is about understanding the data used within our operational and analytics processes, documenting this knowledge in a precise form called the “data model”, and then validating this knowledge through communications with both business and IT stakeholders. Underlying all successful applications is a robust and precise data model, and similarly, most software development failures are due to a lack of understanding of the data or data requirements.


Learn all about data models and why they are so important for software development and for business communication. We will cover the basic components of a data model and the different types of data models that exist.
