October Chapter Meeting

Advantages & Challenges of

Building a Data Model

Oct 13, 2015 (Tuesday)

6 - 8:30 PM 

Ivars Salmon House ~ Register here 


So you’ve acquired a new application and you’ve hired a System Integrator to help you implement it.  They tell you, “We don’t need no stinkin’ data model.  The database is already built!”  Come find out why you do need a data model, and find out how to build it.  Learn about Boeing’s adventure in building data models for a 95,000 table system. (Hint: you don’t need a data model that represents the data in 95,000 tables.) Learn what goes into the decision about what form of model to build and the challenges and shortcuts for building it.
