General Meeting

Two seminars to enhance your value as a data expert...

You've Just Inherited a Data Model: Now What?

The good news is that someone else has done the hard work of architecting a data model and you just have to take on minor maintenance or is that the bad news? Or have you been tasked with implementing a pattern or industry standard data model?  Perhaps a team member has sent the world's best resignation letter and won't be helping you with the model.  Learn the 5 steps you MUST take before working with a new data model.

Attendees will also receive a detailed checklist for the 5 steps.
