Metabase System Software

The metabase software system is used for  aiding enterprise database

The Metabase System is 32 bit Microsoft Windows software, engineered to operate through SQL DBMSs.

The Metabase system is developed through Clarion, the Business Information Systems Generator from the SoftVelocity Corporation. 

The Metabase System has a Client/Server architecture and thus has a very sophisticated end-user interface and embedded metadata processing capabilities.

The Metabase System can run natively over an over the client’s Intranet, or, through Thin@, over the Internet

The Metabase System has been tested under most versions of Windows.  A note details the Windows OS versions.

When the Metabase System is installed on a Windows Server O/S. The Metabase databases can operate through Linux or Unix.

This approach gives you a Client/Server Win-Win distributed access over both the intra-net and Internet.

The Whitemarsh Metabase software system is enterprise metadata management software designed to answer these critical questions.

  • Metabase Software System: v7.5.0.0  - The Metabase system includes  two pre-made metabase databases. The first, Movies, contains enterprise-wide metadata for a multiple-billion dollar corporation. The second, Metabase, is all ready for your metadata. To request a copy of the Free metabase, please visit our Metabase Request page.
     
  • A paper that sets out how the Metabase system addresses Enterprise Data Interoperability and Metadata Management Needs, Need Characteristics and Solutions. Another paper, Metabase Overview, describes the rationale for the Metabase System and also contains the diagrams of the Metabase meta-models.
     
  • Here is another paper that defines what the Metabase System is, its setting within the Knowledge Worker Framework, the common sources for IT system errors within the context of the Knowledge Worker Framework, an extensive check list of Metabase System capabilities by Metabase module, and finally a Return on Investment in terms of database and business information system development.
     
  • Our recommended SQL DBMS for the Metabase Software System is Mimer SQL Enterprise. The Getting Started Guide provide all the necessary setup information.

  • Completely Fair and Thoroughly Objective” (ahem!) comparison of Whitemarsh Metabase and CA’s Erwin.
     
  • Mimer SQL Engine DBMS documentation is also available at the Mimer WebSite.
     
  • Metabase Overview
    This paper presents the rationale for and scope of the Whitemarsh Metadata Software system. The Whitemarsh Metabase has been implemented a number of times over the past 25 years. Not only have Metabase assisted database projects always been successful, these projects have always come in early, with more features, and the costs for implementation have been lower. Finally, the risk of accomplishment has been greatly reduced.

The following technology is employed for use with the Whitemarsh Metabase Software System:

Clarion for Windows - Softvelocity

The Fastest Way to Build Database Applications: SoftVelocity.com is the home to Clarion for Windows. The sophistication of Clarion cannot be overstated. Its design artifacts meta layer feeds the code generator for the creation of a high quality production-quality business application.

Mimer DBMS

The Zero Maintenance Database:
Mimer SQL Engine is a highly ISO/ANSI standardized RDBMS that we employ as our default DBMS. It has a very small footprint and very easy to integrate into the Metabase System.

Thin@

Thin@ is the software from Ris Software that enables the very sophisticated Metabase System in its Client/Server form to operate at near desk-top speed over the Internet. This gives enterprises the ability to do distributed metadata management which is essential for enterprise data management.

Capesoft200

Capesoft is an organization that provides very sophisticated add-on tools for the Clarion developer. We use their tool set in the Metabase System.

UltraTree

Ultra Tree is a product of the Enabling Simplicity Corporation that enables the Metabase System to have very sophisticated Recursion and Network data structures. It is used extensively in the Metabase System. .

BOXSOFT128

Boxsoft is an organization that provides excellent add-on tools for the Clarion developer. Boxsoft also provides high quality education and tutorials to the Clarion community. We use a number of their tools in the Metabase System.

Metabase System Report Writers
Crystal Reports rpt’s are available for accessing the Metabase’s data via ODBC.  Metabase users can purchase a Crystal Reports license if they wish to create their own reports, or use a 3rd party Crystal Report Viewer for viewing data through the many premade reports.
