Mapping Complex Data Structures to Leverage Enterprise Data as an Asset
With increasing reliance on multiple data sources, companies of all sizes are rapidly facing more complex, multi-layered and cross-platform challenges when trying to locate, understand, and accurately interpret essential data. In the healthcare sector alone, this challenge costs an average of $70 million every year.
Data management professionals need to find answers that:
- Make it easy to capture and document complex data structures
- Easily determine logical and physical relationships between data, people, and processes
- Clearly and effectively communicate data throughout an organization
47 percent of healthcare executives say their organization cannot interpret and translate their information into actionable insight.
How do data management professionals fully embrace their enterprise data environment to maximize the value of data governance initiatives?
Business Architect offers business process and conceptual modeling for top-down database design to align with business goals and regulatory requirements.
With Business Architect, companies can easily document and understand their present day business processes – making it easy to examine, analyze, and recommend changes. After analysis, companies continue to use Business Architect to design and codify changes to processes, and even manage and communicate interim processes used to affect those changes.
Using the conceptual modeling capabilities in Business Architect, it's easy to create a high-level visual representation of a business. This easily-understood model helps data professionals get buy-in and clariﬁcation on requirements as they begin a top-down database or business process design.
Business Architect makes it possible to do things such as identify all business processes that modify customer data, or determine which business users will lose productivity when a system outage occurs.
With Business Architect, both business and technical users can more effectively collaborate to ensure compliance with internal business standards and external mandatory regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, or Basel II.
