EBX5, a new way to manage, govern, and share your data assets

My Image
Your business teams need to manage and share a vast number of data assets—master data, reference data, conformed dimensions, hierarchies, and meta data. The dynamism and sophistication of your data means business teams can no longer rely upon simple office automation tools or outdated data management tools to manage these assets. They need EBX5.
EBX5 makes it easier to manage your data assets. Custom applications and purpose-built MDM solutions are hard to change while EBX5 is flexible and agile. EBX5 uses a unique what-you-model-is-what-you-get design approach: with applications generated on the fly and fully configurable. This eliminates the need for long, costly, and endless development projects. And EBX5 includes all the enterprise-class capabilities you need to create data-driven applications. Data stewardship, workflow, data quality and data integration are built right in.

Configure your data management applications

With EBX5, you use a model-driven approach to design data management applications. Then configure only the features you need. Model-driven design simplifies change management. Updates require configuration changes, not coding.

Enterprise-class data management platform

EBX5 provides enterprise-class integration capabilities to connect your data management application to any operational or analytical systems. With EBX5, you can consolidate and distribute data to a wide range of applications or integrate with your existing middleware infrastructure.

Core technologies

In 2000, a group of software engineers came together to revolutionize the way organizations manage, govern, and share their data assets. They evaluated existing data management solutions and found them severely lacking. Determined to build a superior solution, they created the innovative technologies that power EBX5 today. And to ensure that the solution could be widely adopted, they embraced industry standards such as Java, SQL, and XML. The resulting platform delivers the flexibility and scalability you need to manage all of your data assets.
  • Semantic Data Store

    Stacks Image 265140
    EBX5 Semantic Data Store combines the flexibility of NoSQL and graph databases with the safety and consistency of SQL databases. EBX5 is deployed on an RDBMS (Oracle®, MS® SQL Server®, PostgreSQL® and more are supported) but provides its own object-oriented persistence layer. EBX5 Semantic Data Store relies on a rich data modeling language, that goes beyond the limitations of traditional relational algebra, to define complex objects and relationships. It features temporal data management for fine-grained version control and audit, and spatial data management for adapting data values to contexts through inheritance.
  • Data-driven Application Metamodels

    Stacks Image 265156
    EBX5 defines and operates a complete set of metamodels to build data management applications. It combines semantic data models, business rules definition, workflow models, data quality rules and KPIs, and UI configuration in a set of linked metamodels. This ensures great flexibility for designing and maintaining applications.
  • Model-driven Engine

    Stacks Image 265172
    The EBX5 engine generates entire data management applications from the underlying models. When you publish a change in any model—data, workflow, business rule, policy—the EBX5 engine versions and validates the changes and generates the user and system interfaces immediately.
  • In-Memory Engine

    Stacks Image 265188
    At runtime, the EBX5 In-memory Engine delivers high performance for complex, interactive processes, such as: on-screen maintenance of large hierarchies (million+ nodes), structured or fuzzy searching, inline match/merge, or real time validation.
  • D3: Distributed Architecture

    Stacks Image 265204
    D3 supports federated deployment of EBX5. It ensures transactional synchronization between a master instance and slave instances. Use cases include: real time distribution clusters, geographical federation of data stores, and federated governance of global/regional/local data assets.
