Accurate Data about lots of highly interconnected things
(like cost, revenue, risk, chance, owner, amount due, plan etc.)
could be an invaluable asset and basis for business decisions.
They become a nuisance
if they are buried in lots of spreadsheets (of shadow-IT)
or inaccessible for the user in flat relational tables (of Corporate IT).
Navigate the information network of the repository
to view and update the data,
retrieve data with an intuitive query and exchange information.
Create high quality reports with BIRT - yourself.
Create, document and manage data models and
test them with instance data.
Develop custom applications faster and mor flexible
use the Metasafe tool-box with Eclipse Plugins and extensions
Implement them on top of the integrated framework
|Conceptual models||Centralized documentation about information||Better managed information assets. Better quality of data models and data|
|Cloned submodels||Support individual views||Submodels are easy to understand and consistent with enterprise model.|
|Graphical output||Visual documentation||Easy to understand, automatically created, configurable to user requirements|
|Management of instance data||Keep data model and instance data in sync||Avoid the impedance mismatch and the creeping degradation of the documentation.|
|Versioning||Automatic handling of versioning by DBMS-Core||Application development is relieved from implementing versioning.|
|Model based access rights||Protect data against unauthorized access||Fine-grained access rights are easier to grant and easier to understand.|
|erSQL query language||Structured access language for easy data access||Users and specialists can use it on the spot. Queries are self-documenting|
|erSQL editor||Create queries in graphical dialog||No language barrier, results in minutes|
|Modeling tool||Transaction protected multi-user modeling||Several designers can work in parallel. Big models can be managed.|
|metaEditor||Direct query, update, browse of the database||No program required to access the database. Access is configurable and flexible|
|BIRT interface||Reporting and BI with the Eclipse report engine||No program required to create high quality reports and analysis and analysis of cubes.|
|metaEXL||Bi-directional data exchange with Excel||Endusers love it, data management controls it, metaEXL to consolidate an Excel-farm|
|Multi-user capability||Secure access for many users to shared data||Secure sharing of common information Avoid redundancy (copies of Excel sheets)|
|Java API||Service package for application developers||Readymade functions for application developers. Full access to all functions|
|Plug-in external sources||Connect external data stores – databases, files etc||Smooth coexistence with other data Easier incremental migration|
|Eclipse based user interface||Standard known multi-window GUI||General standard, easy to use / to learn Developer: plug-ins to extend the functionality|
|Web-2.0 Access||Use and maintain the repository via the web||Easy, controlled access for many users Easy to manage web-application|
|Open architecture||Fit into an existing ecosystem; standard access techniques||Fits smoothly into an existing environment Easy to install and easy to manage|
|Multi GB data store||Store large models and data volumes||Avoid scattering of data models and metadata Non redundant centrally accessible data|
|Platforms||Windows, Unix||Metasafe runs where Java runs|
