Metabase System Software

The Metabase Software System stores, maintains and reports metadata generated during Enterprise Architecture and Information Technology projects. Metadata represents the total set of database documentation from requirements through implementation and evolution.  Because metadata is stored in a metabase under the control of an SQL engine, it can be searched, updated, reported, and interrelated in many ways. The metabase is enterprise database software.

The Metabase spans the six Knowledge Worker Framework columns, that is, mission, database objects, business information systems, business events, business functions, and business organizations. The metabase brings the Knowledge Worker Framework to life.

The database objects column's submodels, in support of data standardization, store enterprise-wide semantics, data element templates, subject-based data structure templates as specified data models, schemas for implemented database object based data models, and DBMS specific schemas as operational data models.

In addition to the Whitemarsh metabase system, Whitemarsh provides a detailed questionnaire that supports the selection and evaluation of metadata repository tools.

 

Data Modeler Architecture and Concept of OperationsForm: BookSample?
This book introduces the architecture and concept of operations basis for the Whitemarsh Metabase module: Data Modeler. The data modeler module "lives" within the Database and Database Objects component of the Metabase. Persons through their role within an organization perform functions in the accomplishment of enterprise missions, they have information needs. These information needs reflect the state of certain enterprise resources such as finance, people, and products that are known to the enterprises.The states are created through business information systems and databases. Databases in turn are known to the enterprise through database objects and data models. This paper is all about the architecture of the data models within and among databases and database objects.
 
Metabase OverviewForm: PaperSample?
This paper presents the rationale for and scope of the Whitemarsh metadata database (metabase). The Whitemarsh metabase has been implemented a number of times over the past 15 years. Not only has the metabase project always been successful, it has alwayssaved time, lowered risk, and increased quality. Each released metabase modules exists as a "demo" version as well as a production verion. The only "demo version" restriction is that it stops working in 60 days. WisWeb members copies are full production versions with no restrictions. In addition, WisWeb member can obtain complete "metadata formatted source code" of their metabase components that operates in Clarion for Windows.
 
Metabase Rationale Knowledge Worker Framework and Meta ModelsForm: PaperSample?
This paper presents the metadata repository meta models via their entity elationship diagrams. These models were first designed in 1979 and have been in continuous use and refinement since that time. Users have been from industry and government for projects, small to very large. The models and their attendant table definitions are commonly fed to code generators and then the metadata repository systems automatically produced. The results have always been the same: lowered cost and risk, and elevated quality and productivity.
 
Repository Goals and ObjectivesForm: PaperSample?
This paper presents the goals and objectives of a repository development effort. Included are the components of its mission, metadata objects, required business information system supports, supported business functions, and the business organizations that are involved,
 
Repository Selection And EvaluationForm: BookSample?
This material contains a very detailed questionnaire that can be used to select and evaluation repository software systems. Examined are the features and facilities critical to the creation of the meta models essential to enterprise database. The questionnaire is about 50 pages long and is organized into a yes/no answer format. Supplementing the questionnaire are weighting actors for the various levels of questions within the hierarchically organized questionnaire.
 
Resource Life Cycle Analysis OverviewForm: PaperSample?
This paper presents an overview of the Resource Life Cycle Approach that was created by Ron Ross. Topics in this paper include, Background, resource life cycle analysis objectives, building resource life cycles, where resource life cycles fit within the enterprise, employing resource life cycle networks, and the real benefit from RLC analysis.
 
Resource Lifecycle AnalysisForm: PaperSample?
This paper presents a strategy for building a bridge between the operational level information technology system needs of information technology organizations and the strategic level business process needs required by upper management. The bridge then becomes the mechanism through which information systems plans are developed. IT can "see" the strategic management resources directly affected by the information systems and databases, and management can "see" the management basis and rationale supporting why information systems and databases need to be accomplished in a specific sequence.
 
The RepositoryForm: BookSample?
The respository book presents the repository as a database application. Topics include, Why repository, Metadata, Logical Database, Repository, the Metadata System, Physical Database, Interrogation, and System Control.
