The Universal Model Framework

While data is the foundation of a business, harnessing it is challenging since it is formless. Visible Systems took up that challenge by using a Universal Model Framework to determine useful patterns. Even though enterprises can be supported from single source data, certain processes may require additional data resources for multi-faceted solutions. With a Universal Model Framework, we can facilitate that process by showing interdependencies that will be aggregated in a single, accessible glossary. Even though most data modeling efforts are data modeling constructs that have been created numerous times before, doing so can be a challenge. However, rather than re-inventing the wheel each time your business introduces a new system, you can use a single source to get a head start on data modeling efforts. This can help you save a lot of time and effort that can then be re-utilized in other productive endeavors.
At Visible Systems, we do this by:

In other words, we take raw data and transform it from an abstract entity into cohesive business intel. We do that by examining data from a number of different perspectives to understand its attributes as they are in a specific moment. For instance, an entity that is perceived from a sales stance will have different characteristics when it is viewed from, say, a production perspective.

The Universal Model Framework brings these perspectives together into a cohesive whole. In some ways, it is the sum of the parts of your business that have hidden potential which can be tapped into via different perspectives.
