Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Use object modeling to help guide questions during interviews
- Integrate object modeling with use-case analysis
- Create UML class diagrams that centralize business rules that apply across multiple use cases and business contexts.
- Create links from structural modeling diagrams to the textual use-case requirements, and vice-versa: from the use case text to the diagrams.
- Know how much modeling to do (and why) for different types of projects..
- Convert class diagrams to entity relationship diagrams (ERD) for use with Relational Data Base Management Systems (RDBMS).
Understand the BA role on a Data Warehousing project and how to transition from relational transaction databases to a data warehouse.
Learn how to use static, structural analysis techniques to model a business domain. This is a hands-on practical workshop in using class diagrams, data models and other structural modeling diagrams to describe business requirements for an IT system. You will step through a complex real-life case study, learning at what points to develop and verify portions of the model. You will learn how to use structural analysis 'live' during interviews to define business concepts and objects and capture definitional business rules and, later, how to use the structural model to verify use cases in the behavioral model. Trainees also learn how and when to convert class diagrams to ERDs (Entity Relationship Diagrams).
