On January 17, 2019, I will be giving a webcast with MSSQLTips on data modeling best practices. It’s scheduled for 3 PM EST (8 PM UTC). Here’s the link to register:

Here’s what I’ll be talking about:

In this session we’ll look at typical data models used for relational databases whether for transactional systems or warehousing solutions. We’ll also consider cases where non-relational solutions provide a better option and how we ultimately bring that back into a relational model for reporting and analysis. As a result, we’ll look at the power of the Entity-Relationship model along with best practices for normalization. We’ll also cover when denormalization makes sense, which is often the case in warehousing models like with star and snowflake schema.

If there are specific scenarios you want me to cover, drop me a line at kbriankelley {at} acm {dot} org and I will see what I can fit into the talk. Hope to see you there!
