The Business Data Modelling course explores business rules, policies and procedures and how they can be modeled effectively. Participants will learn entity relationship diagramming, super and sub-types, attributive and associative entities and documenting data constraints. The course's logical data modelling approaches focus on the important requirements of the business that are discovered through significant user involvement during the analysis phase. Delegates will also learn how to create models without being limited by technology or organisational structure.
The ability to communicate the intersection of business processes and information/data needs is key to the success of any software development project. Understanding and explaining user needs is a major challenge and opportunity for the business analyst. The business analyst who understands structured modelling has a distinct advantage in addressing and communicating requirements. And the use of models can greatly increase all stakeholders’ understanding of the relevancy of business rules and data management requirements to the project at hand.
Reminder: Prior to taking this course, we recommend that delegates have acquired the background as taught in Eliciting and Managing Requirements.
This course is aligned with version 3.0 of A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide)™.
