We spend millions of dollars and thousands of hours every year developing solutions that fail to deliver due to poorly articulating business requirements. Data models prevent this waste by capturing a common business vocabulary and set of precise requirements at varying levels of detail, ensuring fluid communication across business and IT. Skill up on data modeling with our books, classes, conferences, and certification.
