 Enterprise Data Architect (EDA)

Does your business require information exchange with different parties?
Are you facing data interoperability problem during information exchange?
Enterprise Data Architect may help you if your answer is yes.

While current electronic business activities involve a vast number of trading partners and different electronic documents, data interoperability is becoming a large concern for the parties involved. Enterprise Data Architect (EDA) is a desktop application that provides facilities to business analysts, system analysts and application developers to develop Enterprise Information Architecture, which deals with the structure and use of information within the organization, and the alignment of information with the organization's strategic, tactical, and operational needs [1][2].

This powerful tool incorporates international best practices of Enterprise Information Architecture design and modeling to ensure the architecture created is standard, readily reusable and interoperable in both enterprise and industry levels. Meanwhile, the computer-aided environment provided by the tool can facilitate non-technical analysts, who may not have extensive knowledge of modeling methodology, to model business requirements seamlessly.

The Enterprise Information Architecture developed by EDA can be translated into XML Schema, providing framework for enterprise systems to produce standard business data in XML format. With this framework, data interoperability problem can be solved.
