With Enterprise Conceptual Data Model and Enterprise Metadata Repository, creating a neat blueprint of corporate data/systems infrastructures is easy. ECDM captures abstract business concepts. With ECDM it is desirable to use de-normalized data structures that greatly reduce the number of models, entities, and attributes that business folks must consider when implementing business changes. ECDM is the abstract portion of EMR. EMR captures ECDM and applications, programs, databases, etc. ECDM correlates the conceptual business world that executives relate to with the concrete worldthat techies relate to; hence a bridge is formed. This facilitates swift drill-down into every database, system, and business display that needs to adjust to a business change. Corporations should adopt this new methodology.
