Sample Data Warehouse Snowflake Schema ERD

I implemented tables designed to store comprehensive information within a larger model. This model utilizes slowly changing dimensions of type 2 and type 1, ensuring effective management of evolving data over time. The schema follows a fully normalized approach, representing a design philosophy predating the era of massively parallel processing (MPP).

Sample 3NF Entity Relationship Diagram

I developed a professionally designed relational schema to store computer hardware information. This model was implemented on the MS SQL platform some time ago, employing a strictly normalized model.

Based on this schema, the system has demonstrated durability and longevity, successfully serving its intended purpose for a significant period. It is rumored to continue functioning reliably even today, attesting to the effectiveness and robustness of the original design and implementation.

Sample Data Dictionary

I compiled a comprehensive data dictionary encompassing a detailed description of a computer and user database. This particular stub was generated utilizing Visual Paradigm software, which I proficiently employed during a previous period.

While I lean towards using Sparx EA, it is worth noting that the data dictionary generated from Visual Paradigm showcases an elegant and well-structured representation of the database schema. It effectively captures essential information and is a valuable reference for understanding the database's various entities, attributes, relationships, and constraints.
