Syspedia is designed for people who research data every day. Business analysis, data administrators and application developers can quickly and easily find out about their application data. Syspedia helps because it is:
Quick and Simple to Use
In developing Syspedia extra effort was put into the design to make it quick, easy and simple to use. Syspedia has minimized the number of screens, menus, and clicks needed to get at the information. The screens have been designed for clean look to reduce clutter while providing links to related information. Other tools may be “beautiful” but do not have the functionality or depth of information of Syspedia.
Features that other data professionals have found particularly useful are:
Who, What, Where and When Information
Syspedia was developed by data professionals for one reason – to research data and data elements. They were frustrated researching elements spread across the enterprise platforms and various applications.
With the many HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and integration projects these days having no tools to research data and element usage is a time consuming task. Syspedia answers these research questions quickly and easily with a minimum of clicks.
Syspedia builds an enterprise wide business process analysis repository of business rules and data element meta-data that answers all your questions.
Understand your data definitions
Seeing all your data element definitions from all your platform applications together can quickly help you realize many different data definition aspects and potential problem areas.
Syspedia helps you understand domain, range and class of your different data stores. The definitions used across platforms must be compatible but also complimentary to ensure data integrity.
Next Syspedia documents your enterprise’s naming conventions and standards by quickly scanning all your applications. Syspedia helps see all the different abbreviations, acronyms, synonyms, and definitions used in throughout your enterprise.
Syspedia does more than document data definitions. Through its Standards processes, Syspedia helps you quickly and easily align and redefine element names and definitions. These simple three step Syspedia processes allows you to automatically redefine elements to a common consensus name and definition.
Realign your naming conventions
Syspedia does more than document data definitions. Through its Standards processes, Syspedia helps you quickly and easily align and redefine element names and definitions.
Using a simple three step Syspedia process, it allows you to automatically redefine elements to a common consensus name and definition. Code tables and standard values can also be documented, developed and implemented.
Data usage, dependencies and interaction
Syspedia distills your application code and organizes, relates, and stores all your data element usage. Through your web browser Syspedia applications let you research jobs, applications, database tables, files, and elements and then discover their usage dependencies and interactions with other components at many levels.
This can help determine business rules, conditions and element processing functionality by quickly focusing on the your desired data elements.
