DAMAPDX: Data Mining for Data Modelers (Formulating business problems as data mining problems)
200 SW Market Street

The DAMA Portland Chapter is dedicated to delivering thought provoking, data-centric presentations that will make you more successful in your job

This will be a brief introduction to some of the important concepts that arise in data mining in general and classification analysis in particular. The focus in this presentation will be helping attendees to develop their ability to frame business problems as data mining problems.

Through a demonstration driven presentation format, attendees will be exposed to a variety of data mining topics. Throughout the demo, attention will be paid to points of intersection with traditional data modeler work products including the data dictionary and dimensional data model. I will also leave you with a variety of links and references for additional study on your own.

Particular topics that will be addressed:

  • Formulating business problems as data mining problems
  • Supervised Learning
  • Classification methods including Decision Tree and Logistic Regression
  • Model Validation
  • No math!

Love Your Data: Data Modeling Contentious Issues - Karen Lopez coming to DAMA PDX
Standard Insurance Center Auditorium

I have had the pleasure of hearing Karen Lopez speak at data conferences before. She is an engaging, informative speaker on a wide range of data topics. Coming to Portland from Toronto to speak at our local DAMA chapter Nov 17th.

The DAMA Portland Chapter is dedicated to delivering thought provoking data-centric presentations that will make you more successful in your job.

Details

A highly interactive and popular session where attendees evaluate the options and best practices of common and advanced data modeling issues, such as:

  • Party/party role
  • Natural vs. surrogate keys
  • Agile & other modern methods
  • Who does what?
  • Data type precision vs delivery time
  • Standards vs proprietary Modeling
  • Data Modeling patterns
  • ...and more.

Participants in this session will be presented with an issue along with a range of responses or possible solutions. Participants will vote on their preferred response, then the group as a whole will discuss the results, along with the merits of each possible response. If the specific issue has been discussed in other presentations, a summary of the responses of the other groups will be presented. The goal of this workshop is to help practitioners identify potential points of conflict in data modeling, as well as alternative approaches to resolving the issues.

Summary

We live in a world of Big Data, trying to make sense of it to deliver Business Intelligence. We have the promise of NOSQL and Applied Data Science to deliver some solutions. In dealing with today's challenges we need some new and different ways of thinking. Do we still need Conceptual models? How do they continue to benefit us? What are the limitations of relational models, and how do we overcome them? What are the best strategies for preparing and presenting data model diagrams to support meaningful conversations with our business partners? How do our data modeling tools help? How is the data warehouse environment evolving? Are we beyond dimensional models? How do we work with NOSQL tools and schema-less databases? Do these environments still need data modeling? What is a Data Lake and how do we manage it?

Dr. Gordon Everest will explore these questions and provide some insight for dealing with issues surrounding the role of data modeling in the world we live in today. His presentation will provide some new strategies and approaches. His presentations are always lively and will challenge our thinking.

PRESENTATION OUTLINE

  • DATA MODELING – Beyond the basics, and beyond relational
  • ADVANCED DATA MODELING CONCEPTS AND CONSTRUCTS
  • NORMALIZATION – Myths. The biggest problem with ER/Relational/Object modeling.
  • DATA MODEL PRESENTATION
  • FOCUS ON DATA WAREHOUSING and more

Includes (but not limited to):

  • Architecture of the Operational environment – ODS, staging (ETL), where is data cleansing?
  • Dimensional modeling, fact and dimension tables, cube, star schema and snowflake ◦Fact tables and dimension tables - should they be normalized?
  • Business Intelligence (BI), Analytics, data mining, OLAP
  • And now the "Data Lake" (from Bill Inmon) or perhaps a "Data Swamp"!
  • NOSQL – rationale and motivation, Schema-less or "schema on read"? ◦Type of Tools: Key value pair, multi-column, (directed?) graph, "document" (XML…)
  • Data modeling in a NOSQL environment. Do we still need data modelers?
  • Emerging role of the data analyst/scientist

Speaker

Dr. Gordon C. Everest is Professor Emeritus of MIS and Data Management in the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. He is actively engaged in the world of data modeling and data management, speaking to computer professional societies and consulting with large and small organizations. Early retirement has allowed him to focus on helping organizations improve their understanding and approach to data modeling. He continues to teach a course in advanced data modeling at the University of Minnesota. It is fully online and available to working professionals as well as students. (http://geverest.umn.edu). He is an astute observer and interpreter of developments and trends in information technology, data management, and particularly business data modeling.

@DAMAPDX Chapter Meeting: All Those Other Important Parts of Data Modeling: Security, Privacy and More
Standard Insurance Center Auditorium

Presented by Karen Lopez, Senior Project Manager and Architect at InfoAdvisors

Abstract

Modern database systems have introduced more support for security, privacy and compliance over the last few years. We expect this to increase as compliance issues such as GDPR and other data compliance challenges arise.

In this session, Karen will be discussing the newer features from a database designers points of view, including:

  • Data Masking
  • End-to-end Encryption
  • Row Level Security
  • New Data Types
  • Data Categorization and Classification

We'll look at the new features, why you should consider them, where they work, where they don't, who needs to be involved in using them, and what changes, if any, need to be made to applications or tools that you support.

Speaker

Karen is a senior data architect with an extensive background in development processes and data management. She specializes in taking practical approaches to solutions development. Karen has helped many IT organizations choose appropriate methods and standards based on the group's culture, experience, and focus. She is an international speaker on modern development and design processes, specializing in engaging, often irreverent presentations on data and career-related topics.
