Developing a Logical Data Model:
Business Systems Analysis Consulting Services
An organization’s business vocabulary (its terms and concepts) and the business rules that define these terms and concepts comprise an organization’s data-oriented business rules.
Data-oriented rules provide a stable foundation for analyzing business processes, business systems requirements, and business intelligence requirements. A logical data model (entity-relationship diagram) is a visual representation of data-oriented business rules.
In many organizations, data-oriented business rules live as ambiguous institutional knowledge, informally, largely in the minds of the people doing the essential day-to-day work of the organization, and rarely subject to critical analysis.
Ambiguous and incomplete data-oriented requirements result in costly, rigid, maintenance-intensive information systems that lack the agility to support a rapidly changing business environment. Based on decades of experience, Inteq has uncovered and refined the foundational patterns of data-oriented business rules.
Developing a logical data model is accomplished in weeks rather than months!
