Virtual Data Requirements Training

The Virtual Data Requirements training is an additional 1/2 day session added on to the Virtual Business Requirements Gathering & Writing class to provide training in business modeling for data requirements and business analysis. The business modeling taught to the participants are the context diagram, domain object model, logical data model and the data flow diagram. If you are looking for additional knowledge in these business models, you should sign up for this additional 1/2 day session. The cost is an additional $100.00 or $850.00 for all 4 half day sessions including the Virtual Business Requirements Gathering & Writing sessions. The Instructor uses Visio to build the data business requirements models with the participants.
The class teaches how to build the context diagram for scoping a project to identify the external objects, import views and export views. This is a business model to define the input and output of a software development project. Typically, the context diagram is used to describe the scope of a project. It shows the highest level function and the external objects that interact with it. The context diagram is helpful for identifying duplicate data, data redundancies and data gaps.
Logical Data Model
The logical data model is taught to the business analyst so they have an understanding of how to read and interpret the data requirements using the logical data model approach. The logical data model describes the “things” the business needs in order to operate. The data model also describes the relationships between those things in the business and the facts which describe them. Data modeling is an important skill to develop to understand the business data resources.
Domain Object Model
The domain object model is used to define the data and functionality for software development. Typically, this technique is used for new software development and large enhancements. A conceptual business model is created to represent the business objects, data requirements and operations or functionality needed for the software development. Developers can use the domain object model to build the technical design.
