Event description

Description

Within data management, Data Modeling is concerned with discovering, analysing, and documenting the concepts, relationships, constraints, and operations on data. Even if you’re a non-technical, who isn’t going to be the one creating the agency-wide data models, having an understanding of the basic concepts help both data analysts and the business achieve the best results from data.

The data model provides:

  • the core vocabulary for communication between business and IT regarding the structure and semantics of data
  • the foundation of all data management disciplines including data governance, data architecture, database development (relational and NoSQL), data integration, data warehousing and data quality
  • the necessary meta-data for sharing and using data within an organisation, for managing the data received by your agency, and for making open data useful.

Data models provide the conceptual backbone for all data management disciplines by which Open Data is published, linked and shared cost-effectively to support collaboration between public, private and research sectors.

For more of an explanation as to why data modeling is so important to understanding data and application development, please see Steve Hoberman's video 'The Power of Data Modeling,'

Data Modelling Master Class

The Master Class is a complete data modeling course, containing three days of practical techniques for producing conceptual, logical, and physical relational and dimensional and NoSQL data models. After learning the styles and steps in capturing and modeling requirements, you will apply the best practices approach to building and validating data models through the Data Model Scorecard®. You will know not just how to build a data model, but how to create a data model well. Two case studies and many exercises reinforce the material and will enable you to apply these techniques in your current projects.

Top 10 Objectives

  1. Explain data modeling components and identify them on your projects by following a question-driven approach
  2. Demonstrate reading a data model of any size and complexity with the same confidence as reading a book
  3. Validate any data model with key “settings” (scope, abstraction, time frame, function, and format) as well as through the Data Model Scorecard®
  4. Apply requirements elicitation techniques including interviewing, artifact analysis, prototyping, and job shadowing
  5. Build relational and dimensional conceptual and logical data models, and know the tradeoffs on the physical side for both RDBMS and NoSQL solutions
  6. Practice finding structural soundness issues and standards violations
  7. Recognize when to use abstraction and where patterns and industry data models can give us a great head start
  8. Use a series of templates for capturing and validating requirements, and for data profiling
  9. Evaluate definitions for clarity, completeness, and correctness
  10. Leverage the Data Vault and enterprise data model for a successful enterprise architecture

Presenter

Steve Hoberman has trained more than 10,000 people in data modeling since 1992. Steve is known for his entertaining and interactive teaching style (watch out for flying candy!), and organizations around the globe have brought Steve in to teach his Data Modeling Master Class, which is recognized as the most comprehensive data modeling course in the industry.

Steve is the author of nine books on data modeling, including the bestseller Data Modeling Made Simple and most recent book Blockchainopoly: How Blockchain Changes the Rules of the Game. One of Steve’s frequent data modeling consulting assignments is to review data models using his Data Model Scorecard® technique.

He is the founder of the Design Challenges group, Conference Chair of the Data Modeling Zone conferences, and recipient of the Data Administration Management Association (DAMA) International Professional Achievement Award.

Prerequisite(s)

This course assumes no prior data modeling knowledge and, therefore, there are no prerequisites. This course is designed for anyone with one or more of these terms in their job title: “data”, “analyst”, “architect”, “developer”, “database”, "project manager", and “modeler”.

Data Modeling Zone

This workshop is run in conjunction with Data Modeling Zone (DMZ) Asia Pacific. DMZ is an annual conference in the US, Europe and Australia where you can sharpen your information design skills, share experiences with other data professionals, and help shape our data modeling industry. DMZ Asia Pacific contains over 20 sessions crossing three tracks. Learn from top data experts in the world, as well as many experts in the fields of data science, NoSQL, facilitation, and enterprise architecture. For information on a combined workshop and conference ticket, please visit https://datamodelingzone.com/.

Meals and Refreshments

The cost of the workshop includes morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea. Please email info@dmzasiapacific.com if you have dietary requirements.
