Data modeling

Data as a foundation for innovation

Which data is used and where? How is information exchanged between applications and the outside world? Due to the large number of applications and people who all process data in their own way, data is one of the least tangible components within the organization. Yet data is a source of gold. As soon as you merge data from different systems into management information, opportunities for improvement in , strategy, business operations, cost reduction emerge. Thanks to data modeling organizations truly understand and influence thier data.

The single source of truth for company data

With BlueDolphin’s Data Module, organizations have a user-friendly platform at their disposal which provides insight into data storage and processing. Meaningful data elements and data structures are defined and connected in BlueDolphin. The platform then connects these data objects to the process, application, and infrastructure landscapes of the organization. This provides insight in how data flows run, where data initially comes from (‘system of record’), and what the value of this data is for business operations. The Data Module ensures accessible, efficient, secure, and valuable data management.

In this way, the organization determines which stakeholders are responsible for what, and this is then related to business processes, data flows, and IT systems. This creates a coherent data management system and governance structure. The impact of changes and designs is also assessed from different perspectives. Insight into data flows, processes, and storage provides analysis capabilities in the areas of application integration, data security, quality management, and Master Data Management. Finally, data is an essential link in the completeness of process models, which determine the value of information for the organization.
