How to agree to disagree on Data Solution Automation
There must be hundreds of ‘accelerators’, ‘generators’, ‘frameworks’ to capture the necessary design details in order to generate data logistics – instead of manually developing them. And this is, not even counting the available vendor software. At least pretty much everyone I know in this domain has been working on some proprietary metadata (management) model to deliver faster and better.
This may be to explore new ways of development and documentation, because of disappointment in existing software capabilities, or simply to pursue a drive for innovation. This creative work has led to inspiring ideas. It also means that there are many ways these metadata models (and their supporting technology) have been created. It is often hard to really collaborate because of this. In this presentation, I will give a brief overview of the main concepts required to generate the data logistics for your solution, and present a schema that may be used to interface design metadata between different technologies.
