9780123751065: Developing High Quality Data Models

Developing High Quality Data Models provides an introduction to the key principles of data modeling. It explains the purpose of data models in both developing an Enterprise Architecture and in supporting Information Quality; common problems in data model development; and how to develop high quality data models, in particular conceptual, integration, and enterprise data models. The book is organized into four parts. Part 1 provides an overview of data models and data modeling including the basics of data model notation; types and uses of data models; and the place of data models in enterprise architecture. Part 2 introduces some general principles for data models, including principles for developing ontologically based data models; and applications of the principles for attributes, relationship types, and entity types. Part 3 presents an ontological framework for developing consistent data models. Part 4 provides the full data model that has been in development throughout the book. The model was created using Jotne EPM Technologys EDMVisualExpress data modeling tool. This book was designed for all types of modelers: from those who understand data modeling basics but are just starting to learn about data modeling in practice, through to experienced data modelers seeking to expand their knowledge and skills and solve some of the more challenging problems of data modeling. * Uses a number of common data model patterns to explain how to develop data models over a wide scope in a way that is consistent and of high quality *Offers generic data model templates that are reusable in many applications and are fundamental for developing more specific templates *Develops ideas for creating consistent approaches to high quality data models

Product Description:

A multitude of problems is likely to arise when developing data models. With dozens of attributes and millions of rows, data modelers are always in danger of inconsistency and inaccuracy. The development of the data model itself could result in difficulties presenting accurate data. The need to improve data models begins with getting it right in the first place. Using real-world examples, "Developing High Quality Data Models" walks the reader through identifying a number of data modeling principles and analysis techniques that enable the development of data models that both meet business requirements and have a consistent basis. The reader is presented with a variety of generic data model patterns that both exemplify the principles and techniques discussed and build upon one another to give a powerful and integrated generic data model. This model has wide applicability across many disciplines in government and industry, including but not limited to energy exploration, healthcare, telecommunications, transportation, military defense, transportation, and more. This title uses a number of common data model patterns to explain how to develop data models over a wide scope in a way that is consistent and of high quality. It offers generic data model templates that are reusable in many applications and are fundamental for developing more specific templates. It develops ideas for creating consistent approaches to high quality data models.

Review:

"This guide to developing high quality data models provides practical instruction in understanding the core principle of data modeling and creating accurate models from complex databases. The work is divided into four sections covering the basics of data model types and uses, general principles for data model components and an ontological framework for consistent data models. A final section presents a complete, standards compliant data model created with the Jotne EPM Technology EDMVisusalExpress data modeling tool. Numerous illustrations, charts and sample programming code are included throughout the work and access to additional online content, including the sample data model, is provided. West is an experienced data modeler working in the energy field."--Book News, Reference & Research "Overall, the book is a helpful guide for those who wish to go deep into the art of developing high quality data models. Readers will appreciate: how West connects data models with EA and business processes; the ontological approach, which offers a framework for formal, generic, and consistent models; the efficient use of diagrams for explaining the notions; and the philosophical concepts discussed throughout the text. The book is highly technical. Although it does not directly address people from academia, it will be very useful for related courses, especially those that deal with IT and business processes. Finally, the book highlights the importance of quality in data modeling for decision making."--Computing reviews.com
