New Webinar: Case Study on Data Modeling for SAP Applications

Boeing’s Lorin Yeaton will discuss his experience with incorporating SAP metadata with Silwood Technology’s Safyr into Embarcadero’s ER/Studio.

A Case Study on
Data Modeling for SAP Applications

Wednesday, October 28, 2015
9:00am Pacific / 12:00pm Eastern / 4:00pm United Kingdom

Critical IT initiatives and projects such as Data Warehouse, Big Data, Master Data Management, ETL, Data Integration and Migration, Data Governance, Data Modeling, Enterprise Architecture and others all share a common challenge. These programs need the ability to access and understand the metadata which are the underlying foundations of the Enterprise Applications which hold much of the data required.

Customers who have ERP applications such as SAP, Oracle or Salesforce and need to understand data structures can reduce cost, time and risk by using a tool to extract and integrate key metadata for use within ER/Studio. Join this case study presentation to learn why Boeing chose Silwood’s Safyr solution to integrate SAP into their ER/Studio environment, with productivity improvements including:

Integrating metadata in their data dictionary
Creating submodels to improve navigation of data models
Producing master files for data governance

Can you trust your Enterprise Data? Where is it? What is it? Where did it come from?

Presented by Embarcadero Technologies and Informed Decisions

Organisations face continued significant growth in complexity, diversity and volume of enterprise data with more and more companies worldwide understanding that data governance offers the only strategic solution to this challenge. Enterprises drowning in data and disconnected from trusted data repositories need to break out of organisational silos and re-establish adequate coordination and controls. Metadata Modelling, Governance & Syndication technology enables collaborative content development and effective access to your Enterprise Information Map, the authoritative guide to an organisation’s information assets. By providing greater insight into the location, meaning and proper use of enterprise data, organisations can improve corporate data compliance and utilisation. Business users can now locate, interpret, and accurately utilise data as an enterprise asset thereby adding real value to the business. This workshop explores these issues and provides a pragmatic approach to resolve modern data architecture challenges.

HakkanJulian Clemas-Howard: Betfair
Julian has nearly 20 years of Data Architecture and Management experience providing his services to most of the UK’s Mobile Telecommunications companies as well as organisations in the Insurance and Utilities sectors. He was part of the team that bought Virgin Mobile to the market as the first MVNO in the UK; it was here that he developed his passion for Data Warehousing and where he developed his first Enterprise Logical Data Model. He considers himself very much as a ‘hands-on’ architect, equally at home in the boardroom as embedded in a Scrum team. Julian believes that data warehousing is even more important today as organisations are moving away from traditional ‘monolith’ data warehouses to a more distributed landscape where agility (in all its guises) is the new frontier for Data practitioners.

On-Demand Webinar: Become Agile with Data Modeling

On-Demand Webinar:
Become Agile with Data Modeling

The world of data has drastically changed over the past decade, and we’re now living and working in the time of big data, NoSQL and self-service BI. Today’s data architects must respond and adapt to new Agile development approaches in their modeling environment. However, it’s not the technique that makes it Agile, it’s the approach to the model itself. In this on-demand webinar, Rick van der Lans, an international consultant and data modeling expert, shares his insights on several aspects of Agile data modeling, including:

  • The urgent need for Agile data modeling and how to use it to understand data
  • The impact of big data, self-service BI and NoSQL on data modeling
  • Tips for designing Agile data models and linking business concepts to them

Ensure that your data models stay relevant within an Agile development environment. Learn and share the value of Agile data modeling.

Big Data – debunking some of the myths and unlocking value

London 19 March 2015 – techUK

Embarcadero invites you to a breakfast briefing, which will examine some complexity around Big Data and what it really means. Many vendors claim almost magical capabilities for their ‘Big Data’ products, but the reality is that successful analysis comes down to understanding your algorithms and understanding your data. Learn how data modelling is integral to this. Chris’s presentation will be followed by an overview of Embarcadero’s support for Big Data and a short demonstration of this capability.

Solutions Webinar

The Business Value of Data Modelling

19 February 2015 (14.00 – 15.00 GMT, 15:00 – 16:00 CET)
20 March 2015 (12.00 – 13:00 GMT, 13:00 – 14:00 CET)

With changes in software development methodologies, the role of the data modeler has changed significantly. In many organisations data modelers now find themselves on the outside looking in relegated to documentation ‘after the fact’ rather than active participation where the true value is added. In order to participate fully modellers must not only adapt to an Agile work style but must also be able to communicate the business value of model-driven development.

This webinar is based on a real case study where data modelling was introduced part way through a significant software development project that was quickly losing momentum due to high defect levels. Ron Huizenga shows the contrast in metrics and cost when utilising skilled data modelllers versus a development-only approach with topics including:

  • Model participation in multiple Agile teams
  • Defect Categories and impact
  • Measurement and analysis techniques
  • Remediation strategy
  • Break-through quality improvements
