Data Vault Ensemble Modeling

Fact-Oriented Modeling Workshop

Marco Wobben, BCP Software

This hands-on workshop assumes participants have a basic knowledge of Fact Oriented Modeling through any of the various introduction tracks. It is also ideal for the seasoned data modeler, software developer, or business consultant with a keen interest in domain experts and the language of their business.

This program will highlight various advantages of Fact Oriented Modeling and focus on a small case study.

  • Experience the richness, complexity, and power of using language to do comprehensive business information modeling.
  • Learn why and how identical wording can lead to different information models.
  • Identify uniqueness constraints and derive subtypes easily using data modeling wizards.
  • Discover how technical artifacts, such as SQL DDL, XSD, and OWL, can be uniformly and readily generated directly from an information model.

By practicing these powerful techniques, attendees will learn how Fact Oriented Modeling may benefit their work and business, in favor of more loose modeling methods. The workshop will also empower participants in their ability to understand domain experts without having to abandon their existing tools or practices while offering a deeper insight in information modeling itself.

Participants are invited to bring their own Windows laptop and have a free evaluation license of CaseTalk installed. Or access the free download in advance at
