In this introductory course, learn how logical and physical data modeling can give you a better understanding of your organization's data, business rules, and information architecture decisions.

About this course:

The role of the data modeler has become even more critical to the ongoing lifecycle of development and maintenance, especially in this age of digital transformation. Analysts, developers, DBAs, and BI professionals need to develop their skills in analyzing and modeling data. Whether working with new or legacy data, you must define rules for quality, retention, and protection. And you need a good foundation of data and data design concepts before you begin sourcing, preparing, and manipulating data.

In this introductory course, learn how logical and physical data modeling can give you a better understanding of your organization's data, business rules, and information architecture decisions. Examine how data models are critical to your data security, privacy, and compliance posture. And get hands-on with real-world data—analyze it, implement business requirements, develop data models, and forward and reverse-engineer SQL Server databases.

Note: To complete the hands-on requirements, you’ll work with Office 365, Visual Studio, and Azure SQL Database. Free or limited-time trials are available for these products. You will require an Azure subscription. You can sign up for a free Azure trial subscription (a valid credit card is required for verification, but you will not be charged for Azure services). Note that the free trial is not available in all regions. It is possible to complete the course and earn a certificate without completing the hands-on practices.
