On-Demand Webinar:
7 Dangerous Myths DBAs Believe about
Data Modeling

Many DBAs may only know enough about data modeling to be dangerous. There are a number of challenges that DBAs face when trying to do data modeling, as well as some preconceived notions of what they think data modeling can (or can’t) do for them, such as generating useful DDL code.

This 90-minute on-demand  webinar provides specific insights and examples to show DBAs how a data modeling tool can help them improve database performance. Data modeling can simplify routine tasks and provide valuable context for a database implementation. Karen Lopez and John Sterrett debunk seven dangerous myths that DBAs believe about data modeling, and also discusses and demonstrates:

  • Challenges DBAs encounter with data modeling
  • What data modeling really means and how it adds value
  • Why data modeling is key to successful agile projects
  • How data model-driven development saves time and money
  • Why data modeling should be done throughout the development lifecycle
