So your project is onboard with producing a logical data model and asks that terrifying next question: When will it be done? Depending on where you are in the requirements process, you may have a good idea or no idea what the scope of data is and how complex the data you need to define will be. Here’s a chance to review a few methods of estimating conceptual and logical data modeling efforts, a refresher on how each mitigates project risk, and the practicalities of how good model estimation techniques can garner stronger business and engineering adoption.
What You Will Learn
•Project Management view of Conceptual and Logical Data models – how they mitigate risk and what they should (and should not) be used for
•Standard estimation techniques – A very easy but rich methodology for appropriate estimates (T-shirt, VROM, ROM, Baseline)
•Practical approaches to modeling adoption in the business and engineering – How to leverage your estimates to help drive model adoption and maturity
