Logical Data Modeling:
Mapping & Analyzing Data-Oriented Business Rules

| D93FA4E8-662D-487D-B936-0B7131BF22F6 

Logical Data Modeling is an essential component of professional business analysis. Logical data modeling is often mistaken for database design. However, logical data modeling is the foundation for excellence in business analysis, business systems analysis and business intelligence requirements analysis.

Inteq’s Logical Data Modeling training course provides the basis for understanding the complex moving parts of an organization—its data-oriented business rules—the foundation for precision and agility in requirements analysis.

Business terminology embodies an organization’s business concepts, rules and underlying relationships. These concepts, rules and relationships form a body of knowledge called data-oriented business rules.

In most organizations, data-oriented business rules live as tribal knowledge, informally, in the minds of the people doing the essential day-to-day work of the organization


However, these informal rules unofficially govern how organizations operate and how decisions are made. These rules are surprisingly vague and ambiguous; they are rarely subject to critical analysis. Yet, these rules are the basis for articulating business system requirements that are equally vague and ambiguous.

Vague and ambiguous requirements result in costly, inflexible and maintenance-intensive information systems; systems, that even after significant investment, still do not deliver the necessary functionality. That’s truly unfortunate because there is a clear path to getting the requirements right.

Based on decades of experience, Inteq has uncovered and refined the foundational patterns of data-oriented business rules. Participants in Inteq’s Logical Data Modeling training course utilize these patterns to rapidly discover, critically analyze and precisely specify data-oriented business rules via entity relationship (ER) diagrams.

Testimonials

"Very well organized, thorough, appropriate amount of individual work, group work, and lecturing. I appreciated the extra time given to allow diagrams to sink in."

"Great online course that covered all the essential data patterns. The instructor was excellent...very polished, knowledgeable and thorough. The examples he used and the time he gave us to relate it to our industries was invaluable."

"The instructor interaction with the group was invaluable - to consistently ask for our day to day business examples to help relate the concepts from the course. Also found the custom or proprietary data modeling patterns helpful. Very insightful way to take a different approach to the 'by the book' criteria."
