DEMS VERBATIM: A DYNAMIC KNOWLEDGE BASE

Nowadays, the mass of information handled by companies is so voluminous that the classification of data and their proper understanding become challenges in their own right, especially when it comes to integrating new employees or ensuring the smooth running of teams. Therefore, it is necessary to set up a business glossary, a unique knowledge base, to which each employee can refer to discover, understand and integrate the concerns related to the data in circulation in the structure, in the department or in the company in the broad sense.

Global Data Excellence is excited to announce the launch of DEMS verbatim! DEMS verbatim is a multilingual business semantic glossary, its main advantage is its ability to link the human semantics to the physical data model taking into consideration the context of usage. The overall goal of the semantic data model is to capture more meaning of data by integrating relational concept with more powerful abstraction concept known from the artificial intelligence field. It helps users understand the business language and the business meaning of data. By delivering accessible and trustworthy data, the business semantic glossary helps users to search, understand, trust and use data to support your business. It allows you to find your data easily without meeting conflicting meanings. The business semantic glossary provides data users with a dynamic semantic mapping view of all the business terms that displays all the business terms along with their related data, metadata, and data lineage.

 

DATA STEWARDSHIP

DEMS establishes meaningful governance by providing flexible and configurable governance roles and by allowing stewardship assignment at any organisational level (Business Objectives, Business Excellence Requirements, Geography, Business Contexts and Business Semantic Glossary). Based on the roles and responsibilities integrated in the Data Excellence framework (DEF).  Thanks to the DEF, DEMS will automatically build your governance community and functionalities to manage and interact with it across the entire eco-system.

DYNAMIC DATA CATALOG

Embedding contextual intelligence, the data catalog automatically provides context, lineage and semantic meaning and supports search. It defines the relationships between the business terms and their metadata to sharpen decision-making and actions. It goes beyond standard data catalog by providing the ability to associate relationships (semantic operational or functional) between others with a direct link to the physical database (metadata).

COLLABORATION

The knowledge generated by DEMS verbatim will enable human-machine collaboration since it will be understood by human and artificial intelligence and automatically synchronized. People across the organization can easily collaborate, share and agree on data meanings and usages to achieve data governance goals. At the higher level, they can collaborate to design the knowledge necessary to create and sustain value. The synergy goes beyond human interaction. It facilitates human-machine collaboration using same knowledge basis.  As the data definitions, rules, terms and policies have been simplified and standardized, they can easily be governed and shared to create a greater transparency and trust. It becomes an environment of sharing and collaboration within the eco system (internal and external).

AUTOMATED SEMANTIC MAPPING

As soon as you connect DEMS verbatim to your databases, it will generate a dynamic semantic data model. This will automate traceability in the form of a semantic mapping that displays relationships to terms within a specific context. People can have a view of all business terms and related data. They can easily view variations, meanings, relationships, and business metadata. You can generate semantic models linking your natural language terms to your database terms including relationships. The overall goal of a semantic mapping data model is to map natural language semantic data model to the physical database data model that will enable high level of automation and artificial intelligence optimization.

AUTOMATED SEMANTIC MAPPING

DEMS integrates global search capabilities that easily allows users to search for business terms, definitions, technical metadata… Users can type a keyword and the system will look for context specific results. Optionally, you can get advantage of the natural language interrogation capabilities.
