You will be introduced to a wide range of modeling concepts, as well as the types of questions you should ask as you develop a business information model to be used on any Magnitude project. As you progress through the course exercises, you use BIM to build a business model from scratch. BIM models are not required to be deployed to Magnitude Dynamic Information Warehouse (DIW) applications, but in the course, you ultimately deploy your model to Magnitude DIW. The topics covered are relevant to business models for both Magnitude DIW and Magnitude MDM.

Who Should Attend
Team members involved in virtually any aspect of a Magnitude project. This includes information architects, system developers, administrators, data modelers, business analysts and key business sponsors.

What You Will Learn
In this course you will learn a practical approach to Business Information Modeling with Magnitude. By the end of the course, you will also have in-depth knowledge on how BIM assists you in designing, deploying and managing your business information model when you use it in support of DIW or MDM.

You get one week of unlimited access to a personal, dedicated, cloud-based training environment which includes:

  • Underlying infrastructure and access to all components of the Magnitude Dynamic Information Warehouse required to complete the course
  • A Training Center application that prepares the environment for each exercise and validates the successful execution of each exercise
  • A second ‘solution’ environment to enable you to see the expected results of the course exercises
  • An online chat facility with remote environment sharing to connect you with an expert in our world-class support organization (available Monday to Friday for all hours except between 5 pm and 10:30 pm US Eastern Time)

In the Virtual Classroom you get:

  • Perpetual access to a series of instructional videos and other course collateral
  • Free access to new modules as they are added to the course, enabling you to get current on the latest content. (Note: This excludes access to new training courses which Magnitude will be providing to facilitate education on dedicated subjects).

Topics Covered

The Fundamentals of Business Information Modeling course covers a wide variety of modeling concepts, including:

  • Common data integration and analytics project pitfalls, and how using a business information model can prevent them
  • What a business information model is, some of its key features, and how it differs from a data model
  • Modeling Activities and Business Context
  • Unbalanced Hierarchies
  • Business Entity Identification
  • Modeling Groups
  • Physical Configuration
  • Model Deployment
  • Managing Models for Team Collaboration

You should plan to spend about 8 hours to complete the course.
