Geek Sync | Becoming a Better Data Modeler: Part 3 (Telling the Story)

Can you read a data model as seamlessly as reading a book?

Register for our Geek Sync, Becoming a Better Data Modeler: Part 3 (Telling the Story), on Wednesday, June 17, at 11 AM CT, with host Steve Hoberman.

Join us as we tell the cardinality story, explaining how to read the one, zero, and many symbols on our data models. We will also discuss subtyping, and weak and strong entities. You will not just be listening to Steve – this will be an interactive session. We will take a challenging yet fun quiz together which will reinforce your data modeling skills!

Speaker: 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. 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.

You can view the session slides here and the replay will be posted in the IDERA Resource Center after the event.

  • I spend more time re-engineering databases that have not had the model updated in years. I use ER/Studio for this task, but often it does little help when deciding on transferring the physical to the logical model. Is there a feature which can be used to better re-assemble the logical ?
