Certive Data Model Composer

Many businesses are confronted with multiple, disconnected sources of information, and therefore can’t easily get coherent answers to critical questions. To support leaders, analysts need an understandable, configurable abstraction layer to build and query data models that reflect the real world. Queries of the model should account for all interesting relationships between data, and do it as directly and efficiently as possible.

The Certive Model Composer helped bridge the gap between raw data and a business decision-maker’s mental model of their world. Data modelers could quickly construct, test and deploy models that could answer questions about risk, performance and the health of the business.

Working for Certive Corporation with CTO Scott Wiener and a small team of engineers and coders, we built a deep, custom set of plugins for the Eclipse open source IDE (integrated development environment). I had to balance input from Certive leaders with the needs of customers and our developers. Together we created workflows for data modelers using our specialized SQL query language and graphical editors. I also created a large set of object icons, branding images, splash screens and installer images.
