Len Silverston and Paul Agnew have discovered in decades of data modeling that there are "universal patterns" that apply to well over 50 percent of data model constructs and that can be reused for many applications, including human resources. For example, a roles pattern may be used to consistently model employees, contractors, workers, and other roles. A hierarchy pattern may be used to consistently model employee, position and organizational structures. A classification pattern may be used to consistently model demographics of employees as well as other parties.
In this webinar, Silverston and Agnew will define what they mean by "universal patterns" and explain how these patterns can be applied to the development of human resource data models. They will focus on some of the most common re-usable patterns, including roles, hierarchies, and classifications that can aid in the development of consistent, flexible and powerful human resources data models.
