Data Modelling & Design

Our Data Modelling & Design service is specifically designed to help organisations understand and manage their data assets across multiple systems and platforms, to enable them to successfully deliver data focused business or technology services.

Service delivery involves our Data Architects/Modellers capturing, analysing and then representing the organisation's detailed data requirements in the form of a technology-independent, Common Logical Data Model.  This provides data users (including Data Stewards and Data Quality Analysts) with precise descriptions of the data assets used across the organisation's various systems and processes, ranging from data collection and operational use, through storage and exchange to reporting and analysis.
