What is Data Modeling? A short definition.

1 minute reading time

Data modeling is the process of creating a representation or blueprint of a data structure.

This can be in the form of a diagram or a set of rules that define the relationships between different data elements and the rules for organizing and storing the data.

Data modeling is an important step in the design and development of databases and data systems, as it allows designers to understand the requirements and constraints of the data, and to identify potential issues or inconsistencies before implementing the data structure.

Data modeling can also be used to improve the performance and scalability of a data system, by identifying opportunities to optimize the data structure and the algorithms used to access and manipulate the data.
