Webinar: A New Look at Data Modeling and Data Analysis

Statistics:Article Rating (1854 Views) (1 Comments)


Many business analysts who took business analysis for an undergraduate or even advanced degree in universities around the world found that they had to take at least one, and probably two, semesters of data modeling. They learned entities, relationships, normalization, resolution of the many to many relationship, and so forth. And then for the next twenty years of practicing business analysis never once engaged in creating a data model or in most cases, even seeing one. Obviously, the business analysts worked with data, defining it, refining it, organizing it, and so forth. But data modeling was left up to the database administrators.

Today, data modeling has a different meaning (not that creating entity-relationship or class models has gone away) in the analytics world. It has to do with a mathematical model of the data used for data mining and knowledge discovery. So, will business analysts be expected to know all about analytics and creating algorithmic data models, or is that someone else’s job as well.

This webinar will acquaint you with both forms of data modeling and answer the question: what does the business analyst have to do with any data modeling?

Good info for me to confirm the shift of focus for me into data analytics versus general data modeling.
