The P7 Physical Data Model view defines the structure of data used by the Resources in the architecture.

Background

The P7 is one of the architectural products closest to actual system design in the framework. It is used to describe how the information represented in the L7 Logical Data Model is implemented.

While the mapping between the logical and physical data models is relatively straightforward, the relationship between the components of each model (eg entity types in the logical model versus relational tables in the physical model) is frequently one-to-many or many-to-many.
