Conceptual data model

Digitisation for construction product manufacturers: a plain language guide, published by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in 2021 states: ‘A conceptual data model is a high-level description of the information needs of a business, focusing on the main concepts and key relationships. Because the conceptual data model describes the semantics of an organisation without reference to technology, it can be used to discuss the initial requirements of the business with stakeholders that aren’t data specialists.’
