#1258 DTAN - consider name change to Data modelling and design: change request accepted

DTAN current describes Data analysis activities which are part of the systems development life-cycle, e.g along side business analysis. In the industry the term Data Analysis is also applied to data analytics - which is described in the SFIA skill called "Analytics". A name change will be helpful to aid clarity. Data modelling and design seems to reflect the activities and responsibilities described in the DTAN skill. It is also terminology used by the DAMA DMBOK to describe this topic.
