Canberra Training: Fact-based Modelling
Mon. 1 May 2017, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm AEST
Traditional data modeling tools, textbooks and database management systems focus on Entity-Relation modeling (ER Modeling). This approach has been successful for modelling operational databases and the stages of data warehouses over a number of decades. However modern data modelling requirements expose a number of limitations for ER modelling, including support for non-relational data, lcomprehension by business users, and support for high levels of automation for schema and integration code generation.
Fact-Based Modeling approaches and tools are emerging that address these limitations while still being compatible with ER Modelling. These tools and approaches have an additional benefit of allowing the model to be developed early and provides the foundation for effective data management of any data project.
With Fact-Based Modelling, we start from the perspective of the statements typical business users would say or write about their environment. We then apply a series of steps to establish a formal information model of this environment that is precise, concise and expressed in the language of the business. The information model is both easily understood by business users and provides the semantic information required for automatic generation of a wide variety of schema outputs, integration code and other supporting documentation.
In this training course, attendees will:
- Learn the basics of Fact-Based Modelling and how it contrasts and complements traditional ER Modleling.
- Learn the basic steps of the Fact-Based modelling process.
- Apply the process in a web-based information modelling environment.
- Automatically generate a wide variety of schema outputs, integration code and other supporting documentation that can be imported into existing environments and tools.
Who Should Attend?
This course is for anyone who currently knows data modeling basics (or has previously attended the Data Modeling Master Class) and is seeking more advanced techniques. Roles include:
- Data Modeller
- Project Manager
- Team Lead
- Support Analyst
- Data Administrator
- Data Analyst
- Integration Specialist
