Whether you are a business data modeler who represents data requirements as entities and relationships, or a physical data modeler more concerned with tables, columns, and indexes, you know that the hard stuff lies beneath the surface. Every data design, whether logical or technical, is challenged by one or more complex considerations—scalability, adaptability, performance, legacy and package databases, etc. Every data model raises questions. Advanced modeling techniques provide many of the answers. This course explores different situations facing data modeling practitioners and provides information and techniques to help them develop the appropriate data models.

There are no prerequisites for this course.
