Data modeling with ERM

The efficiency of system development is largely determined by a logically unambiguous structure of data in a database. To achieve this, you must first gain insight into the data structure at a conceptual level. Entity Relationship Modeling (ERM) is a widely used supporting method for conceptualizing data structures. This course covers topics that enable the participant to create the right conceptual data model using ERM. The workshop is practice-oriented, which means that a large part of the time is spent on creating models and working on assignments.

  • To structure and model a complex quantity of data
  • To translate an ER model into a logical relational database
