Webcast : IDERA Live 2021 Session: The Power of Abstraction

Abstraction is all about designing your data model to support changing requirements. In this IDERA Live session, learn about abstraction through examples such as “Party” and “Document”. Determine whether or not to abstract or leave the terms in a more concrete state by applying the three critical questions covering: (1) Commonality, (2) Value, and (3) Effort. Learn the good and the bad of abstracting, and of course, the Star Wars connection. Lastly, see how IDERA’s harvesting tools can pull newly created terms and relationships between Terms from Logical Data Models to seed Business Glossaries, kick starting the creation of the Data Governance project.
