Data Model is a conceptual framework that defines how data is organized, stored, and accessed in a database or data management system. It provides a clear structure, relationships, constraints, and rules governing the storage and organization of data. Data models are created to ensure data integrity, consistency, and accuracy.
Data models are created using different notations, such as Entity-Relationship (ER) diagrams or Unified Modeling Language (UML). These models represent the entities (objects or concepts) and their relationships with each other. Attributes of the entities, their data types, and any constraints or rules are also specified in the data model.
Data Model plays a crucial role in database design and development. It helps in organizing and structuring data, ensuring its integrity, and improving data quality. By defining relationships and constraints, data models enable efficient data retrieval, manipulation, and analysis. Additionally, data models serve as documentation for understanding the data requirements and facilitating communication among stakeholders.
Data models find applications in various domains and industries, including:
