David Hay, President of Essential Strategies, Inc. has written the book,
Data Model Patterns: Conventions of Thought, published by Dorset House Publishers.
This book presents a comprehensive set of standard data model patterns for standard business situations. It sets a foundation with models of people and organizations, activities, products, and contracts, before moving into accounting and various manufacturing topics. It also includes models of the laboratory and document management. At the end, it covers more atomic standard models which are components of those presented elsewhere.
Ok, here's the deal:
The Essential Strategies, Inc. Webmaster (which is to say, yours truly) isn't bright enough to figure out how to charge you an arm and a leg for downloading these incredibly insightful and clever articles. So, you may have the benefit of their wisdom free of charge.
However . . .
I have been informed that these pages are being seen all over the world, and, as I sit here in Houston, Texas, USA, I'm curious to learn just who and where you are.
So as payment, all I ask is that you drop me a line (that's American slang for "send me an e-mail note") and let me know who you are, where you are, how you found out about this page, and what you think of the articles. Plus anything else you see fit to say.
Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is for the purpose of conversation only. Everything there is to say about Essential Strategies, Inc. is already in this web site, so there is absolutely no reason to "spam" you. I will share your user id with no one else.
