Planning for the future makes sense, but architecting it provides tangible value. That's especially true with the discipline of Information Architecture, where careful design can pay serious dividends. Conceptual modeling can help organizations align business needs with information systems, revealing which data sets are needed by whom, and for which processes. Instead of building systems based on current requirements, a focus on the overall business plan can save time and money down the road.
Register below for this episode of The Briefing Room to hear Analyst William McKnight offer insights on how conceptual modeling can improve the design and implementation of Business Intelligence and Master Data Management solutions. McKnight will be briefed by David Dichmann of Sybase, an SAP Company, who will explain how the latest version of PowerDesigner can be used to build a plan for reducing the number of touchpoints for data integration and federation, thus expediting and improving MDM and BI. Dichmann will also discuss how certain processes can be automated, thereby minimizing the kind of manual procedures that tend to be error-prone.
