The Business Value of Data Modelling
19 February 2015 (14.00 – 15.00 GMT, 15:00 – 16:00 CET)
20 March 2015 (12.00 – 13:00 GMT, 13:00 – 14:00 CET)
With changes in software development methodologies, the role of the data modeler has changed significantly. In many organisations data modelers now find themselves on the outside looking in relegated to documentation ‘after the fact’ rather than active participation where the true value is added. In order to participate fully modellers must not only adapt to an Agile work style but must also be able to communicate the business value of model-driven development.
This webinar is based on a real case study where data modelling was introduced part way through a significant software development project that was quickly losing momentum due to high defect levels. Ron Huizenga shows the contrast in metrics and cost when utilising skilled data modelllers versus a development-only approach with topics including:
- Model participation in multiple Agile teams
- Defect Categories and impact
- Measurement and analysis techniques
- Remediation strategy
- Break-through quality improvements
Make the Switch to ER/Studio
06 March 2015 (12.00 – 13:00 GMT, 13:00 – 14:00 CET)
26 March 2015 (14.00 – 15.00 GMT, 15:00 – 16:00 CET)
Are you considering a switch from ERwin and want to understand what’s involved in a cost effective migration to ER/Studio rather than upgrading to ERwin 9.5?
Do you want to see how ER/Studio really works and get your questions answered before you make a decision?
Are you responsible for your organisation’s information strategy? Do you want to use a Data Modelling tool that promotes strategic planning and programme coordination? Do you want to avoid data quality related issues that delay project delivery or require costly unplanned rework late in a project and be able to provide unlimited browser access to model diagrams and metadata?
Join us for a webinar with ER/Studio Product Manager, Ron Huizenga. He will provide insights on topics such as:
Clear views of both logical and physical models in the intuitive ER/Studio user interface
Flexible and user-friendly features including Attachments, Naming Standards, and Compare and Merge operations
Capabilities such as Universal Mappings that ERwin doesn’t offer
Unlimited business user browser access to model diagrams and metadata
Steps to prepare for a successful data model migration
How to use the MetaWizard bridges to successfully import ERwin models
Bring your questions or send them in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org and get them answered during the session.
