To fully exploit the value of information assets, understanding what data is available to the enterprise is a great first step. There are key individuals within your organization with deep knowledge of your data and information. It is equally likely that a holistic view of all information across your enterprise is elusive at best, and non-existent at worst. Here is where Agilarc with Enterprise Data Modeling can help.
Beyond providing an inventory of what data you have, creating an enterprise data model allows for the graphical depiction of business rules among key business entities (customer, product, health care encounter, etc.). Like it or not, the transactional systems that sustain the daily operations of your business enforce business rules. Given most transactional systems are purchased commercial “off-the-shelf” packages (ERP, CRM, etc.), someone outside of your organization defined those business rules.
Discussing, validating and modeling business rules specific to your organization is a key benefit of enterprise data modeling. Evaluating how well your entrenched transactional systems support those business rules is an important side benefit.
Whether you are embarking on a Master Data Management (MDM), a re-architecting of your data warehouse, or launching an enterprise data governance initiative, modeling the information of your enterprise allows for the consistent understanding of organizational data and the business rules associated with key business data entities.
