Data Model Scorecard

The industry standard for data model quality

Allowing Steve to apply Data Model Scorecards on our data model was the best decision we took in order to strengthen our modeling position in respect to our business requirements. It helped us to understand and explore where and how can we apply and improve our data strategy in the future.

I have been reviewing data models using the Data Model Scorecard technique for over 15 years. I have reviewed relational and dimensional models, data warehouse and operational models, and conceptual, logical, and physical models. Having your data model reviewed by the Scorecard ensures an objective and comprehensive validation. There are three deliverables for every review:

  • Presentation. I will present for at least one hour through WebEx or a similar tool on the strengths and areas for improvement in each of the ten categories (Correctness, Completeness, Scheme, Structure, Abstraction, Standards, Readability, Definitions, Consistency, and Data).
  • PowerPoint. You will receive a copy of all of my slides.
  • Report. You will receive a detailed report in each of the ten categories. On a recent assignment, the report exceeded 250 pages.

To learn more about the Data Model Scorecard, you can read my book (free preview here).

There is a very simple fee structure for reviewing data models. Please fill out the form to learn more.
