160 Pragmatic, High Quality Definitions for Business and Data Analysts

Quality Practice Begins with Quality Definitions

Sadly, in the worlds of business and data analysis and modeling good definitions are hard to find, bad definitions abound and misunderstanding and misuse of even the most fundamental terms is commonplace.

I am a perfectionist. I am passionate about quality and want to deliver it to my clients first time, every time.  However, I am a lazy perfectionist and want to consistently deliver quality with the minimum possible effort.

As I said above, quality practice starts with quality definitions. So, in order to deliver quality, I needed access to a set of high quality and pragmatic definitions.

No single source provided me with all of the definitions that I needed. I therefore started building my own – with input from some excellent analysts and modellers with whom I have been fortunate enough to work over the past 30 years.

I have extracted over 160 of the definitions I have found to be of most use to me and put them into a single Glossary that I would like to share with you for free.

Definitions for Today

I constantly keep these definitions updated in order to reflect the latest trends and innovations.  At the same time I take care to avoid infecting and diluting them with the latest hype and media misuse.

These definitions cover all of the following areas:

  • Function Modeling
  • Process Modeling
  • Procedure Modeling
  • Data Modeling
  • Data Quality
  • Master Data Management
  • Systems Development

I hope that these definitions will prove to be as valuable to you in your day-to-day work as they are to me.
