Information Modeling & Design
The SMARTER® software lets you create information and data models and map out how information combines with business logic to form knowledge assets. You can graphically add detail to your models and show business rules, relationships between information elements, and your system's information logic.
In today’s business world, information is money. You have to know what, when, and where information is needed and how data combines to form information for decision-makers and customers.
