9780471353485: The Data Model Resource Book, Vol. 2: A Library of Data Models for Specific Industries

A quick and reliable way to build proven databases for core business functions
Industry experts raved about The Data Model Resource Book when it was first published in March 1997 because it provided a simple, cost-effective way to design databases for core business functions. Len Silverston has now revised and updated the hugely successful First Edition, while adding a companion volume to take care of more specific requirements of different businesses. Each volume is accompanied by a CD-ROM, which is sold separately. Each CD-ROM provides powerful design templates discussed in the books in a ready-to-use electronic format, allowing companies and individuals to develop the databases they need at a fraction of the cost and a third of the time it would take to build them from scratch.
With each business function boasting its own directory, this CD-ROM provides a variety of data models for specific implementations in such areas as financial services, insurance, retail, healthcare, universities, and telecom.

From the Publisher:

"In addition to being an excellent resource for data modelers, this book will help managers, business analysts and architects gain a high level understanding of various industries and integration challenges facing IT professionals. Len's concepts, insights and models provide a valuable contribution to data architecture."--Regina Pieper Enterprise Architect, Sun Microsystems

"Len Silverston has produced an enormously useful two-volume compendium of generic (but not too generic) data models for an extensive set of typical enterprise subject areas, and for various industries that any data modeler will likely encounter at some point in his or her career. The material is clearly written, well organized, and goes below the obvious to some of the more perverse and difficult information requirements in an enterprise. This is an invaluable resource for doing one's homework before diving into any modeling session; if you can't find it here, there is certainly a very similar template that you can use for just about any situation with which you might be faced."-- William G. Smith President, William G. Smith & Associates

"In today's fast-paced e-oriented world, it is no longer acceptable to bury business constraints in hard-to-change data structures. Data architects must comprehend complex requirements and recast them into data architecture with vision for unforeseen futures. Len?s models provide an outstanding starting point for novice and advanced data architects for delivering flexible data models. These models position an organization for the business rule age. Their proper implementation and customization allows the organization to externalize and manage business policies and rules so that the business can proactively change itself. In this way, the data architecture, based on Len's models and procedures for customizing them, becomes by design the foundation for business change."--Barbara von Halle Founder, Knowledge Partners, Inc. Co-author of Handbook of Relational Database Design

"These books are long overdue and a must for any company implementing universal data models. They contain practical insights and templates for implementing universal data models and can help all enterprises regardless of their level of experience. Most books address the needs for data models but give little in the way of practical advice. These books fill in that void and should be utilized by all enterprises."--Ron Powell Publisher, DM Review

"I was first introduced to The Data Model Resource Book three years ago when I was hired by a firm that wanted an enterprise data model. This company did not believe the dictum that "all companies are basically the same;" they felt they were somehow unique. After a little analysis with Len Silverston's help, we found that we were actually quite a bit the same: we had customers, accounts, employees, benefits, and all the things you'd find in any corporation. All we had to do was adapt the product component of Len's book and we were ready to move ahead with a great framework for all of our data. A CD-ROM that accompanies the book provided scripts to build the model in Oracle very quickly. We then began mapping all of our detailed data types to the enterprise model and, voila, we could find a place for all of those various spellings and misspellings of Account Number.

Volume 2 of this revised edition provided even more exciting features: models of industry-specific data. I began to see interesting patterns that permeated this volume. For example, a reservation is a reservation, whether you're an airline, a restaurant, or a hotel. (We even have something similar in the oil industry--the allocation.)

Another concept from the book that has changed my thinking and vocabulary is the word "party." I recently managed a project in which an employee could also function as a customer and as an on-line computer user. The team was in disagreement regarding a name for this entity; but after checking The Data Model Resource Book, we realized that here we had a party playing three roles.

Whether your job is to jump-start a data warehouse project or borrow ideas for any subject area in your next operational database, I highly recommend The Data Model Resource Books, Revised Edition, Volumes 1 and 2 as your bible for design."--Ted Kowalski Data Architect, Equilon Enterprises LLC Author of Opening Doors: A Facilitator's Handbook

From the Back Cover:

"These books are a must for any company implementing data models. They contain practical insights and templates of universal data models which can be used by all enterprises, regardless of their level of experience."-Ron Powell, Publisher, DM Review

If you've relied on The Data Model Resource Book, Revised Edition, Volume 1 (0-471-38023-7) to jump-start your system development efforts, then you know that using a library of proven data models and data warehouse designs can produce huge savings in development costs. But what about the unique needs of your industry?

The Data Model Resource Book, Revised Edition, Volume 2, provides data models specifically tailored to your industry. It includes both brand-new models for each industry and generic models that the author customizes. The result is a comprehensive library of the industry's core data models and applications, including models for:
* Financial services
* Professional services
* E-commerce
* Manufacturing
* Health care
* Insurance
* Travel
* Telecommunications

You not only get the data models themselves, you also learn to:
* Apply reusable data designs across a broad variety of industries
* Integrate databases and data warehouses across your organization
* Combine models from different applications for your specific needs
* Use the data structures to provide quality assurance for your own models
* Employ the book's star schema designs to develop data analysis solutions

You can save even more time and money with the Data Model Resource Book, Revised Edition, Volume 2, CD-ROM, which:
* Provides the SQL code you'll need to implement the models described in the book or to reverse-engineer them into your CASE tool
* Allows you to view for free the demonstration of data models from both Volume 1 and Volume 2
* Allows you to purchase online the downloadable models by industry type-directions inside
