Speaking: You’ve Just Inherited a Data Model – Now What? 16 June Webinar

16 June 2011 @ 2:00 PM EST

On Thursday, 16 June 2011 2PM ET I’ll be presenting a webinar for the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS) Data Architecture virtual chapter (DArchVC) on working with industry standard data models.  Attendance in the webinar is free.  No pre-registration is required; just put the Live Meeting link on your calendar for 16 June 2011, 2PM EDT.

The DArchVC chapter is fairly new and I have been somewhat involved helping get it set up.   The people doing most of the work are:

From our chapter page:

Data Architecture underpins just about everything we do in IT.  Without a clear understanding of how data is structured, there is no reliable way to derive meaning from it.  Data Architecture drives the design and governance of data systems, and thus should be of interest to any data professional.  Data Architecture provides the blue-prints that we all share, whether we be DBAs, data integration developers, database developers, data warehousing professionals, data presentation developers or client-side application developers persisting data for later retrieval.

The PASS Data Architecture Virtual Chapter will focus on data architecture concerns as they impact users, developers and DBAs on the Microsoft SQL Server platform.  We want to make data architecture accessible to all data practitioners, and drive the point home that Data Architecture is a set of practices and a body of knowledge that overlaps almost all database professionals to some degree.

The session abstract:

You’ve Just Inherited a Data Model – Now What?

The good news is that someone else has done the hard work of architecting a data model and you just have to take on minor maintenance…or is that the bad news? Or have you been tasked with implementing a pattern or industry standard data model?  Perhaps a team member has sent the world’s best resignation letter and won’t be helping you with the model.  Learn the 5 steps you MUST take before working with a new data model.

Attendees will also receive a detailed checklist for the 5 steps.
