Data Modelling for Business Analysts

Course Overview

This practical workshop will teach the delegate industry-standard, recognised techniques for data analysis. The course is highly interactive and gives extensive practice in defining the data groups (classes, entities) and relationships / associations. The delegate will explore business rules, test out the viability of system options and construct logical models of the data to reflect business needs.

Business rules are a fundamental aspect of the requirements which Business Analysts need to capture and understand. Many business rules are intrinsically bound up with the structure of data, and a clear understanding of the business data enables the building of more flexible and maintainable systems.

When analysing business requirements, therefore, an understanding of the implications of the way in which data is structured is essential to an appreciation of the freedoms and constraints of current infrastructure, whilst investigating fully the business rules. Data modelling is therefore an essential skill for the Business Analyst.
