What is a Data Model?
A Data model is defined as the architectural structured way of storing data in an application. Salesforce platform provides with a standard model which allows you to customize the data models for custom functionality.
The standard data model is configured and accessed in the salesforce area (Org) under the Setup→ “Customize”. If you want to add a custom field to the standard data model, you can add it by customizing the data model. By the custom data model creation, you are creating a place to source your data that does not exist before.
The term data model is mentioned, as to create a separation between the data model, UI, and Business logic. Salesforce provides the UI, and Business logic whenever you create a data model, which means a new object or table in the Salesforce Org. The 3 components UI, Data Model, and business logic are referred to MVC as the above 3 components are the underlying architecture that Salesforce uses.
Data Modeling: Give your data a structure - fields, objects, and relationships in Salesforce Org.
