What is the grammatical form and function of "modelling" in the phrase "Data modelling" used in the context of computers?
Is it an example of noun (data) plus noun (modelling) type?

I think so. "Data modeling" = "modeling of (or with) data"

To explain, let's say this: data modeling is like you're modeling something. Since the first word 'data' is there, we can then be informed that this means you are modeling data. Dancing Dancing Dancing Dancing Dancing

Thanks. Is "data" a noun or an adjective in that phrase?

It is a noun used adjectivally.
