What is User Focused Data Architecture?
For nearly 20 years, JCK has been helping bridge the communications gap between users and developers of information systems.|
From our beginnings teaching the time-proven Extended Relational Analysis® methodology to our latest offerings in Business Event modeling, we've been helping people understand each other in some of the most demanding situations imaginable. We've helped our customers salvage development efforts that major consulting firms walked away from. We've helped firms large and small understand their distinctive edge and translate it into systems designs that gives them a competitive advantage. All by just teaching them how to communicate.
We can help you do the same. Look over our training and consulting offerings, browse our articles, take a look at our success stories. See how good communications makes all the difference in systems design and implementation. Let us help you address your communications problems. We can train your developers, designers, and even your users to communicate data requirements clearly. They can learn how to define terms precisely, and build understandable structures that serve as the foundations for any kind of system.
No matter what your operating platform, database system, implementation environment, or operational interface, all your development efforts will work better when you're communicating clearly.
Of course, if your development efforts are typically on time, within budget, and meeting expectations, then you probably don't need our help.
If not, feel free to contact us.
Since 1989, JCK has been devoted to teaching and implementing the principles of User-Focused Data Architecture. UFDA is based on the principle that the users are the data experts in any organization. Sound data architecture should focus on extracting the user's knowledge, clarifying ambiguous defintions, and building understandable data structures. These definitions and structures serve as the basis for system development. The first and most well known UFDA technique is Extended Relational Analysis ™ (ERA), which has been proven for decades. More recent techniques include Business Event Analysis & Modeling ™ (BEAM), which is useful for both Transactional Systems (BEAM TSS) and Decision Support Systems (BEAM DSS).
