just the facts

Build more successful databases and applications through improved business and data understanding using Fact-oriented Modeling.

Welcome to the intriguing realm where data seems to be everywhere we look. It runs in apps, drives businesses, and shapes public opinions and politics. As data affects our daily lives, we must pay more attention to what the data is about and how we communicate as human beings.

It is not the data itself, but our communication about the data that builds bridges of understanding. This book aims to bring a holistic view to three distinctive audiences, enabling all to communicate about data and collaborate more effectively. Thanks to our human capability to communicate, we can build bridges that connect people, transcend silos, and align technology in a way that propels organizations forward into this digital age.

In collaborative environments, individuals share information about their experiences. Human history began with the oral transmission of facts, progressed with the advent of the printing press, and has now reached a digital era where computers can store and process this information. Despite these advancements, the fundamental purpose of communication remains unchanged: the dissemination of information.

It's not just about the data, data model, or information model. The act of modeling serves to communicate the needs of the organization. The act of information modeling allows us all to engage with each other using the fact-based modeling method you will apply through the many examples within these pages.
