Summary

Summary

This work provides a solid foundation in the following tools and techniques: the different types of data modelling - enterprise, transactional, and dimensional; the stages of analysis - developing conceptual, logical, and physical models; what to do if you need to work with existing systems - reverse engineering and forensic analysis; general principles for converting logical models to physical ones; modelling scope - focusing on what's important but allowing for future development of your model; defining detail - entity relationship (E/R), key based, and fully attributed models; documenting your understanding of the business in the model; and graphical data modelling, focusing on the IDEF1X notation.
