No, data will not leave your cloud. The only information that will be extracted from your environment is metadata about your data. I.e. what tables and columns exist in your database / lake environment. Daana executes all of the pipelines in your environment and creates a separate schema for the transformed information.

You will, we believe strongly in data integrity and know that it’s business critical information that you own and will never be shared with third parties.

Daana utilizes one of the established Ensemble Modelling techniques called Focal Point modelling.

A model is supposed to be the business representation of the information, i.e. source system agnostic, sometimes this is also called the semantic representation of the information as opposed to storing the data in a system oriented fashion.

Yes! Just like there can be many types of relationships between entities in real life, so it can be in the information model you create in Daana. For instance, imagine you have two entities, one called Customer and the other Order. The customer can both “PLACE” an order and “RETURN” an order. In this case there would be  two different relationships, named PLACE and RETURN.

Yes! Sometimes, there are different ways of identifying the same thing. Imagine we have a Customer entity, we want to both be able to identify “a Customer” through CUSTOMER_ID and ORGANIZATION_NUMBER, because they represent the same thing. This is of course possible in Daana and the subsequent relationships that might use these different ways of relating Customer to other entities would automatically be resolved / handled in Daana.

A workflow in Daana ties your source (lake) with your model, data mappings & transformations and finally the target schema where you want to build your data warehouse and consumption layer.

Daana creates a physical business representation of your system oriented raw data stored in your data lake, according to best practices of ensemble modelling. This data structure is superb for machines, less so for a person to look into and understand. That’s why Daana also creates ready building blocks that can easily be used in for instance a Business Intelligence tool. I.e. the end users get a finished representation of their information in their own business oriented language with their definitions, regardless of how the operational systems represent the data.
