Top 10 Objectives
- Explain data modelling components and identify them on your projects by following a question-driven approach
- Demonstrate reading a data model of any size and complexity with the same confidence as reading a book
- Validate any data model with key “settings” (scope, abstraction, time frame, function, and format) as well as through the Data Model Scorecard®
- Apply requirements elicitation techniques including interviewing, artefact analysis, prototyping, and job shadowing
- Build relational and dimensional conceptual and logical data models, and know the tradeoffs on the physical side for both RDBMS and NoSQL solutions
- Practice finding structural soundness issues and standards violations
- Recognise when to use abstraction and where patterns and industry data models can give us a great head start
- Use a series of templates for capturing and validating requirements, and for data profiling
- Evaluate definitions for clarity, completeness, and correctness
- Leverage the Data Vault and enterprise data model for a successful enterprise architecture
This workshop focussed on the Data Modelling discipline within Data Management concerned with discovering, analysing, and documenting the concepts, relationships, constraints, and operations on data. It created a bridge for the 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.
Steve Hoberman’s explains why data modelling is so important to understanding data and application development in his video.

Steve Hoberman has trained more than 10,000 people in data modeling since 1992. Steve has written many books on data modeling including the bestseller Data Modeling Made Simple. 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 conference, frequent blogger, recipient of the 2012 Data Administration Management Association (DAMA) International Professional Achievement Award, and highest rated tutorial presenter at Enterprise Data World 2014 and 2015.
