Business Area Data Models

Business Area Models describe functional business or subject areas found in most industries or developed for a specific industry.

ADRM Software Business Area Models reflect current best-practices and may integrate external third party data commonly used in the industry or functional area (ex: Transunion, Equifax).

Each Business Area Model is constructed from a common set of entities from the corresponding industry Enterprise Data Model, which insures that Business Area Models will have common keys, attributes and definitions consistent with other industry models.

Business Area Models expand upon the subset of business area data represented in the industry Enterprise Data Model and provide expanded and more granular levels of scope and data.

Business Area Models contain the greatest level of detail and provide the lowest level of data granularity in the ADRM Software model architecture - while maintaining definitions consistent across the data model architecture.

Business Area Models provide a data architecture for business analysis, planning, applications design and development of data marts and the data warehouse.

Business Area Models are the best-practice data blueprints for the functional areas of the business.

This approach enables the organization to design top-down from the industry Enterprise Data Model propagating changes and new requirements consistently between models.

As new information is added to a Business Area Model it can also be propagated to the Enterprise Data Model, Data Warehouse Model, Data Mart Models or application models.

Business Area Models are used in conjunction with the Enterprise Data Model to develop star schema data mart models.

ADRM Software develops and markets Solution Models, which are data models targeting specialized functional areas and drawing components from various business area models coupled with specialized design and IP.

Having both the Enterprise Data Model and Business Area Models for reference facilitates consistent dimension design and a resulting data architecture that implementing conforming dimensions.
