Applied Datamodeling BV launches SEMMOD

Without doubt Data Modelling is at the very heart of all IT systems regardless of their technology, development paradigm, applicationtype or market segment. Since more and more systems get interconnected it becomes more and more important to keep track of all relevant data types in the IT ecosystem.

When more objects and more relationships between objects exist in one environment it gets more complex to keep a proper overview. Which systems are influenced when someone wants to extend an object with a number of new attributes?

All these matters can be addressed when using the data modeling tool Semanta Modeler launched September 2012 by Applied Data Modeling BV.

What kind of data modeling tool is Semanta Modeler?

The basic concept is to only support a strict object hierarchical notation. This means that objects that refer to other objects are in a higher hierarchy than objects that are being referred. Because of this hierarchical notation only a few symbols are needed to depict the objects in a data model with their respective relations which make the model intuitive and understandable for non IT specialists.

To make the concept stronger the modeler supports important notations for inheritance, grouping of inheritors (adjunct and disjunct specializations) and multiple-inheritance.

These features enable the user to create data models which are describing the full semantic conceptual scope of the IT systems of any organization.

For productivity reasons a number of database scripting export options are supported to enable the user to put their models to work (Oracle, SQLServer, MySQL, etc).

For calibration and conversion reasons reverse engineering of database models is also supported.
