Why you need this book
Would you call Data Modeling an analysis technique or a database design technique?
The optimal database is the one that most closely resembles the structures that live in the minds of the owners. DATA MODELING FOR INFORMATION PROFESSIONALS leads you to understand the structures underpinning an owner1s worldview. Then, your Data Model will be predicated on the logic behind the owner1s conceptualization of their business and will guide a DBA to an optimal database definition. In the same way a blueprint makes visible the ideas of a homeowner, Data Modeling must help you correctly and completely compile user requirements. But just as the blueprint guides the builders, the data model must also guide the database administrators to build optimal systems. DATA MODELING FOR INFORMATION PROFESSIONALS shows you how to make the essential connection between an owner1s concepts and a database1s columns.
Are you looking for patterns in your data?
With DATA MODELING FOR INFORMATION PROFESSIONALS you can jumpstart your work with the many sample data models. Digital copies of models are accessed using the included Silverrun CASE tool you will find on the free CD. (This is an exceptional value; Silverrun is an expensive and professional CASE tool capable of handling any data modeling task and any number of simultaneous users.)
Would you say that data modeling is mostly an art or mostly a discipline?
DATA MODELING FOR INFORMATION PROFESSIONALS teaches data modeling in a logical progression beginning Instances, Attributes and Relationships. The course shows how our concepts of Stage, Class, Superclass, and selections are natural progressions of those basics. Readers have frequently said that DATA MODELING FOR INFORMATION PROFESSIONALS makes clear ideas they previously thought were complex. DATA MODELING FOR INFORMATION PROFESSIONALS shows Data Modeling to be the discipline that it must be.
Have you ever been fired for falling asleep at your desk?
Readers report that the nearly insane humor in DATA MODELING FOR INFORMATION PROFESSIONALS makes learning 19-ý% more fun than reading the office newsletter.
Do you believe that Object Orientation is the next wave?
As regards Analysis, the fundamental goal of OO is the same as that of Data Modeling. Both the OO bigot and the IE zealot are trying to describe the things in the owner1s world to the stupid computer such that the little magnetized spots on the platter come and go in roughly the same way that their real counterparts do. OO provides new ways for the DBA to consider grouping together the spots, but this is of no concern to the business analyst. DATA MODELING FOR INFORMATION PROFESSIONALS is an IE / OO foundation for you.

The discipline of logical data modeling has been castigated by many established ("old-fashioned") data processing professionals for its esoteric nature and lack of practical relevance to application development. A book written by a team that developed a fine computer-based training program for data modeling ("Infostructure Pro") could have dispelled this myth by providing forthright explanations of the concepts and practical, easy to understand examples of each technique used in probable modeling situations. Unfortunately, this book does not achieved the goal of advancing the understanding and acceptance of data modeling in the general IT community.
I make all my employees that have to use any kind of database read this book.
This is a must have for anyone in Information Business.
