Open-source software DBMS (OSDBMS) software has come a long way in the past 10 years, creating new options for organizations to not only save costs but also experiment with many new technologies.

Products range from traditional relational to new, nonrelational DBMS technologies, such as graph, document, key-value and increasingly, multimodel.

Although cost optimization is a valid use of OSDBMS, there are other advantages to implementing these technologies as well.

Replacing older technologies, such as prerelational, pure-XML, object-oriented DBMSs and consolidating outdated desktop DBMS products are a few of the options. OSDBMS products are not without risk.

It is important to understand the risks and rewards associated with OSDBMS — when to use them and when not to, when to purchase support and how to mitigate the risks.

Discussion Topics:

  • If OSDBMS is ready for “prime-time”
  • What OSDBMS choices are available
  • Best practices for implementing OSDBMS

Join Merv Adrian (LinkedIn profile, Gartner bio) Gartner Research VP, and Donald Feinberg (LinkedIn profile, Gartner bio) Gartner VP Distinguished Analyst, as they help you get to understand Open Source DBMS’s and how they may help you rewrite the rules in your organization.

Live Webinar – January 25th, 2017 10:00 am – 12:00 pm  EDT
Activity Type: Education – Course or Training  2 Hours  2 PDU free
Provider: IAG Consulting (REP 2858)

This 2 hour webinar is a perfect course that will give most PMs and BA’s everything they need to mitigate risk and be successful in their roles.

In this two-hour webinar you will learn the essential concepts of data modeling required of today’s Business Analyst and Project Manager.

Effective requirements definition requires a fundamental understanding of data modeling.

This webinar lays a foundation of the essential aspects of defining the data model and requirements for a project. IAG believes very strongly in this key Business Analysis competency.

Every Project Manager and BA involved in requirements definition and modeling needs to know these critical concepts.

Without a solid basis of data modeling skills, there is a significant risk that quality and value of use-case, business requirement, and business rule documentation will be significantly compromised.

For someone involved or responsible for the business requirements, business architecture or business analysis on a software development project, there are large number of questions to be answered.

  • Do I need to be an expert in data modeling? (No, by the way)
  • How detailed do I need to define the data,
  • Why do I need a data model – especially if we’re working on an existing system?
  • Do I need to produce a logical data model?
  • Do I need to know normalization theory (I hope not)?
  • What do we do about data if we’re ‘Agile’?
  • What about modeling or data definitions for a Business Intelligence project?
  • When and how do I gather data requirements with the SME’s? What’s the best way?

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the key concepts of conceptual and logical data modeling
  2. Learn the steps to building a data model
  3. Write clear and concise and consistent data definitions
  4. Apply acceptable modeling principles
  5. Use/apply consistent naming standards

At some point, you may need to give critical feedback to an employee, talk to your boss about his or her behavior, deliver bad news to someone or resolve a conflict between you and a co-worker.

These kinds of conversations can be difficult to undertake.

Most of us would rather avoid them altogether. Even when we do attempt them, we are often disappointed with the results.

We don’t say what we mean and don’t mean what we say. Issues go unresolved and resentment and bad feelings linger.
