Geek Sync Webcast : Becoming a Better Data Modeler: Part 4 (The Power of Subtyping)
How often do you use subtyping on your data models? Subtyping is a fantastic tool for improving communication and for enforcing additional rules on your conceptual and logical data models. Learn the terminology of supertypes and subtypes, and explore how different modeling notations represent subtyping. The subtle variations in subtyping meanings that exist between Information Engineering (IE) and IDEF1X notations will be covered as well. Explore the use cases for subtyping and practice reading the subtyping structure during this fun and interaction session.
