Description

As corporations increase in size and complexity, securing, managing and insuring the integrity and accuracy of internal data becomes a critical component to continued corporate growth.  If a corporation is growing, there will come a time in each entity's evolution where an ELDR (Enterprise Level Data Repository/Meta Data Repository) becomes an integral component to the organizations information systems architecture.  

This course provides the student with the knowledge required to:

  • Justify the need for an ELDR within the corporation
  • Construct a set of Best Practices/Principles for it's design
  • Design and build the Framework for the services the ELDR will provide
  • Design the resulting architecture required for the ELDR
  • Define the rules for the data/information to be stored within the ELDR (Data Dictionary, operational, decision support, etc.)
  • Define the categories of data, data integrity, data security, etc.
  • Define the rules, processes and structures required to check-in, check-out and modify data/information stored within the ELDR (Management Framework)
  • Define the application components that will comprise the ELDR system

This course is designed to support the ongoing efforts of an IT department and its data architects and managers in designing, building and maintaining a corporation's business, operational and decision support information systems.  It is an advanced course most useful to database architects, senior information systems analysts and systems development personnel.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course targets database administrators, developers and architects working for corporations
  • The course would also be useful to information technology consultants

Introduction and Enterprise Level Data Repository Frameworks
5 Lectures 39:24

This course assists the student in learning how to define and construct an Enterprise Level Data Repository (ELDR).  Within this course, we will define both an architectural and a management/operational framework for the Repository. The full scope of this course lecture series includes the following:

  • •A defined and sample Repository Management Framework for a Corporation globally.
  • •Defined personnel roles to manage this environment including an overview of tasks usually relating to each of the roles.
  • •An ELDR “Help Desk” support environment definition including training tips; and,
  • •An initial definition of targeted users of the ELDR systems and tools;

As corporations grow, undertaking the construction and deployment of an Enterprise Level Meta Data Repository becomes an almost "Must Do" project.  The increasing complexities of systems and data as corporations globally deploy need some form of structured meta data environment else the corporation is at risk of losing control of its internal information assets; and this can hurt them as they continue to try to compete in the marketplace. This lecture discusses in overview what an ELDR actually is, the benefits of implementing one within a corporate environment and the risks a corporation will face if it does not build one - so be sure to check this lecture out!

Database referential integrity is not just a database design feature to be taken for granted when databases are implemented and deployed.  As a database and systems architect, when working with high concurrent user and high availability systems, you will need to thoroughly understand referential integrity and all its ramifications to your final deployed database designs. In high availability systems, its usage becomes in actuality, an architectural design consideration.

A Global Data Dictionary is a "cornerstone" component to a Meta Data Repository.  Be sure to watch this video to learn what types of content a corporation should be collecting about their internal data and application systems through these "Dictionaries".
