Data Modeling Contentious Issues
A highly interactive and popular session where attendees evaluate the options and best practices of common and advanced data modeling issues, such as:

§         Party/party role

§         Natural vs. surrogate keys

§         Class Models vs. Data Models

§         SOAs, Ontologies, ESBs, New TLAs and Shoe Strings

§         What is Logical? What is Physical? Why Do We Care?

§         Politics vs. Customer Satisfaction

Participants in this session will be presenting with an issue along with a range of responses or possible solutions. Participants will vote on their preferred response, then the group as a whole will discuss the results, along with the merits of each possible response.  The goal of this workshop is to help practitioners identify potential points of conflict in data modeling, as well as alternative approaches to resolving the issues. This presentation is targeted at experienced data modelers and assumes extensive data modeling skills.

Workshop participants will learn: 

  • Tips for getting the best review comments from business users.
  • A technique for reviewing modelling objects in the right order and spending the right amount of time reviewing.
  • Trade-offs in presenting the material.
  • 10 tips for getting the right people to review the right models.
  • Myths and Urban Legends about data model reviews
