Data Modeling: From Logical to Physical
by Francois Cartier

Presentation Description:

Learn in detail what it takes to turn a logical data model into a physical data model, ready to be implemented as an operational database. I'll talk also about implementation strategies, views, denormalization and transforms, performance tuning, and data model maintenance.

François Cartier has more than thirty years of diversified experience in Information Technology in a wide variety of commercial sectors, including telecommunications, transportation, manufacturing, wholesale, government agencies, insurance, and financial institutions.

He has designed systems marrying relational with object-oriented technologies, built and contributed to corporate data models, designed operational and decision support databases under a variety of DBMSs. He has managed data analysis, data standards management, system development, application support and IT change control teams.

He has given classes at Golden Gate University, and made technical and management level presentations at various forums in the USA and Japan.

François is a senior consultant with e-Modelers, the vice-president of BAEMUG, the treasurer of CA's Modeling PLC, and the treasurer of this S.F. chapter of DAMA.
