Since a business analyst needs to accurately elicit, define, and document
user requirements, understanding the users' needs is key to an analyst's
success. By using logical data modeling, a business analyst can convey
requirements in a way that can easily be validated, and doing so allows
stakeholders to understand the requirements, business rules, and data management
methods for any given project.
In this class, get hands-on practice modeling requirements through entity
relationship diagrams, supertypes and subtypes, and attributive and associative
entities. You will learn to use logical data modeling to work directly with
business users to accurately define requirements.
