Brad Steinke -Data Modeling Case Study - A Public Sector Tale

Brad Steinke has 25 years of software development experience with increasing responsibilities in such capacities as; pick a title that ends with analyst, project manager, developer and designer while currently being a systems architect for the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension focusing on data. He has worked in both private and public sectors in industries such as investment, home mortgage, banking, insurance, hospitality and law enforcement. He has been CBAP certified since 2008, TOGAF 9 Certified since 2015 and CDMP certified since 2017. He attends DAMA, AEA, IASA, BAG and IIBA events when possible and assisted in writing part of the certification exam for becoming CBAP.

There are varied challenges to modeling law enforcement data in the public sector for the state; not owning the data, it has a high degree of complexity, siloed operations, dozens of applications, few agreed upon terms and definitions and tackling it as a project instead of a self-sustaining Data Governance and Enterprise Architecture activity.  Within many public sectors, we encounter multiple inconsistent standards, legislative mandates and senate hearings all the while the culture and the historical development methodology seem to be the biggest hurdles. This presentation will be an interactive session (I cannot do all the talking and modeling) discussing my experiences, as well as yours, for moving forward and achieving Data Governance through an evolving Enterprise Architecture process in order to understand and model data.

 Learning Points

  1. You are not alone. Modeling and Governance challenges occur in most organizations and take time.
  2. Example Data Flow Modeling options that all mean the same thing.
  3. How to approach and address modeling issues with data
