But there are less than a handful of things you want to be really good at; becoming super-skilled in them will help you enormously in your database career. And believe it or not, one of these key areas is data modeling and its kissing cousin, physical database design.

This article addresses this issue and demonstrates how database pro's need to return to their foundational practices of building the right database for the right type of job.
