Yes, it has been a while since our last newsletter. A friend of Whitemarsh, a retired CIO of a very large financial services company recently said to us "if I have too much to do now, how do I have time to learn and deploy Whitemarsh? He followed that up with, "If I don't have the funds I need now, how do I have extra funds to learn and deploy Whitemarsh?"
During much of the past year, the responses we developed are located at "Immediate Return". We believe you will find dramatic and very positive answers to those two critical questions.
We have also been hard at work developing presentations on each of the seven ROIs. Many of our presentations are just one-hour. We can provide them to you via or GoToMeeting license, and would be demonstrating the Metabase System over the Internet.
The current Metabase System is 7.06. Version 7.07 will be released in the Fall and will contain three more modules: Data Governance, User Acceptance Testing, and Business Rules.
We believe that the description of the Project Management ROI is well worth reading.
Version 0706 of the Metabase System is Internet Ready. It enables Metabase System users to accomplish Knowledge Worker metadata management work in a distributed fashion across functions and the enterprise. Please contact us for a demonstration.
Internet access is through a Java client. Thus, you may now have access to the Metabase System from Linux/Unix, Mac/OS, or Windows clients.
We have added many presentations and demonstrations about the Whitemarsh approach to Enterprise Data Management. These presentations are available via GoToMeeting sessions.
We have also expanded our Immediate Return On Investment materials. Ask us to show you how by using Whitemarsh products.
Our newest ROI item, Enterprise Architecture Development was developed in response to inquiry from an organization that evidently recognized that while they had many databases and a number of different DBMSs, they really did not have an enterprise architecture. We now have a number of workshops on Enterprise
We were asked to develop a work plan to create, bottom-up, an As-Is enterprise architecture and then a road-map to a To-Be enterprise architecture. We did. We have also added a new Short Paper, #25, Inductive Enterprise Architecture Development.
