Business intelligence and data warehousing systems challenge the proven data modeling techniques of the past. From requirements to implementation, new roles, uses, and kinds of data demand updated modeling skills. The data modeler’s toolbox must address relational data, dimensional data, unstructured data, and master data. For those with data modeling experience, this course extends their skills to meet today’s modeling challenges. Those new to data modeling are introduced to the broad range of modeling skills needed for BI/DW systems. Those who need to understand data models, but not necessarily develop them, will learn about the various forms of models and what they are intended to communicate.
