Description Course Outline Exam Details
 

A well designed data model is the cornerstone to building business intelligence and data warehouse applications that provide significant business value.

Effective data modeling results in transforming data into an enterprise information asset that is consistent, comprehensive and current. Data is transformed from operational or source systems into a data warehouse and often data marts or OLAP cubes for analysis. This course provides the fundamental techniques to designing the data warehouse, data marts or cubes that enable business intelligence reporting and analytics.

This online training course discusses the two logical data modeling approaches of Entity-Relationship (ER) and dimensional modeling. ER modeling is used to establish the baseline data model while dimensional modeling is the cornerstone to Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Warehousing (DW) applications. These modeling techniques have expanded and matured as best practices have emerged from years of experience in data modeling in enterprises of all sizes and industries. These techniques improve the business value of the data, enhance project productivity and reduce the time to develop applications

This course includes a mix of concepts, applications and practical examples.

Reviewer: Kimberly Wolff  
This was a good introduction into the type of material I've been looking for.  Adding in some examples that we work through (to ensure we understand the concepts) would be a nice addition to this course.

Course Review March 29, 2017
Reviewer: Matt Chapman  
Coming from the Logical Data Modeling course the first module became very redundant. The definitions and review of normal forms were a great addition.
