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.
