Data-Centric Modelling

Data-Centric Modelling, or DaCeMo, is the method of Conceptual and Functional Modelling, covering Business Architecture, Enterprise Architecture, Data Architecture (of course), Business Analysis, as well as more detailed modelling of systems based on Semantic technology. It is specifically designed for Digital Transformation and Data-Driven Enterprise.

DaCeMo Visualisation

While a DaCeMo model is a set of ontologies and is produced as such, DaCeMo audiences are not expected to read it as such. DaCeMo Visualisation is a website, hosted locally or on a cloud of choice, that provides graphical presentation, search and navigation

Implementing DaCeMo

Data-Centric Modelling comes with different approach to the process of modelling. The approach, known as "Hub and Spoke Modelling" or "Shared Modeller Approach", has been proven highly effective for traditional Visual Modelling, however with DaCeMo it becomes a necessity.

Four Layers of Abstraction

Business Abstraction defines four “Levels of Abstraction”, which are defined in terms of the audience that can understand information in a particular Layer:

Developing Data-Centric Modelling

Data-Centric Modelling in the At Stage 1, DaCeMo will deliver top-level Ontologies and basic guidelines. Practically, you are expected to conduct Business Architecture and Business Analysis in Protege - unless you want to use VS Code or Atom to type OWL in Turtle encoding. To do this, you need to combine Ontology Modelling, Business Architecture and Business Analysis skills.
