Why do data projects fail? It’s because business representatives and IT don’t understand each other that well. Business people lack data understanding and, in turn, data people aren’t always business savvy.
Based on experience of hundreds of data projects, we believe conceptual data modelling (or business data modelling) is the single most efficient method to improve collaboration between business, IT and data professionals.
Conceptual data modelling refers to a method that defines business requirements for data projects.
It’s all in graphic form and consists of:
– Definitions of business concepts (entities) and rules
– How the business concepts relate to one another (relations)
– Other relevant information of the business data
We also believe, that conceptual modelling is the foundation of any data initiative, such as AI development. It simply helps all relevant parties to better understand their data assets.
Ellie, conceptual modeling re-invented to match the needs of digital age leaders.
Ellie is designed to make conceptual modelling easier and more business friendly than ever before.
What is Ellie for?
Building a data warehouse or a big data platform:
When building a data warehouse, IT needs requirements from business in order to deliver reporting and analytics system that is independent from source systems.
Data Science and AI:
Even the most skilled data scientist or AI developer is not an expert of all business domains. Ellie helps data scientist to understand business data and to build accurate machine learning model for a particular line of business.
Building an operational database
Along with process modeling and use-case specifications, conceptual modeling is an essential part in defining requirements for any database design.
Data governance and MDM
An average enterprise has hundreds of different IT systems for storing their data. Ellie helps business and IT to navigate within the number of separate databases and coordinate efforts.
