ITE Platform Design

Data is Platform concern – does not imply central, could be distributed – is managed according to a Master Data Management MDM strategy
Data use Patterns are Application concern – Applications should be modular, both commonly shared and local specific


Platform Concerns are:

Master Data Management
Governance and Roles

Platform Pattern: Someone produces the data -> Someone observes the data


Application Concerns are:
Local Data
Local Conditions
Local Rules

Application Pattern: Verify, Filter and Ruled use of Data


Patterns of Data Distribution

Publish Subscribe – distribute data
Point to Point – distribute computing
Request Reply – distribute platform (data and function)


Master Data Patterns and Platform resposnibilities

Collaborative – Event Management
Operational – Quality Management
Analytical – Life Cycle Management

Information service patterns, Part 4: Master Data Management architecture patterns


Data Warehousing is a Life Cycle Management function performed by Platform
BI – Business Intelligence is a Analytical application
