Details of our course on Relational Data Modeling

Develop practical data modeling experience in using structured analysis techniques and standard (Oracle) notation for entity-relationship diagramming to document enterprise-wide data requirements. This class focuses on the skills of data analysis and data modeling, and is not a tools class. Data modeling problems of increasing complexity are given in class exercises and workshops, and modeled with pen and paper. Lectures are followed by training workshops, with hands-on (paper-based) data modeling exercises.

AUDIENCE:

Business analysts, subject matter experts, data analysts and modelers seeking hands-on training in using basic data modeling techniques.

PREREQUISITES:

Students should possess previous data analysis experience

LOCATION AND MAXIMUM ATTENDANCE:

 All classes are scheduled and held at suitable client site training rooms. There is no minimum attendance requirement. Maximum number of students: 16.

COURSE DURATION: 3 days

CONTENTS:

  • Introduction to Data Analysis and Data Modeling
  • Standards for Drawing Entity-Relationship Diagrams
  • Hands-on Relational Data Modeling Training Exercises
