Towards Platform Independent Database Modelling in Enterprise Systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Enterprise software systems are prevalent in many organisations, typically they are data-intensive and manage customer, sales, or other important data. When an enterprise system needs to be modernised or migrated (e.g. to the cloud) it is necessary to understand the structure of this data and how it is used. We have developed a tool-supported approach to model database structure, query patterns, and growth patterns. Compared to existing work, our tool offers increased system support and extensibility which is vital for use in industry. Standardisation and platform independence is ensured by producing models conforming to the Knowledge Discovery Metamodel and Software Metrics Metamodel.
