Do you already know data modeling basics and want more? Take the Masterclass! You will first apply a Best Practices approach to building and validating data models through the Data Model Scorecardtm, a tool for improving data model quality. Next we focus on a collection of intermediate and advanced modeling techniques, including advanced normalization and enterprise data modeling. The final section contains guidelines used to gain consistency across our data models in areas such as in abstraction and whether to star schema or snowflake.
