GUI-Driven Data Modeling
Steve Hoberman, Steve Hoberman & Associates
I find myself often validating data models by using data entry screens. For example, the drop down menus often become lookup entities and eventually decode tables. What if you can derive the conceptual and logical data models from Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs)? Learn about my research in this area to date, and practice using this approach. We might be able to change the world!
