The Power of Data Modeling

Data modeling is the process of learning about the data, and the data model is the end result of the data modeling process. A data model is a set of symbols and text that precisely explains a business information landscape. A box with the word “Customer” within it represents the concept of a real Customer such as Bob, IBM, or Walmart on a data model. A line represents a relationship between two concepts such as capturing that a Customer may own one or many Accounts.

Three Tips to Becoming a Smarter Analytics Consumer

I just returned from a prospect research conference in Las Vegas, and I am more excited than ever before about the direction of predictive analytics in support of advancement and fundraising efforts. After speaking with as many of the 800-plus attendees as I could, I believe that the fundamental “why” and “how” are now widely recognized within this space. So in that spirit of broad understanding, I want to offer three concepts that I believe will help anyone become a better consumer of analytics. These are applicable whether you purchase analytics from a vendor, or are building models in-house, just starting out, or an experienced practitioner.
