Here be the Hall of Fame of Vendors, who use Graph Data Modeling in their Products, Today!

Work in Progress - Feedback is welcome!

To qualify for a place in the Hall of Fame, a product should use visual, interactive, graph representation of a data model. The framing of the context is the property graph model as defined here, but plain directed graphs or hybrids are also welcome. If you know about a product, which should be listed here, please notify info@graphdatamodeling.com. Thank you!

Architector

Architector is a cloud-based or server-based tool to manage everything to do with the complex area of data lineage. Data lineage can be defined as the journey data takes from where it is created through to where it is used in reports, models, decisions, etc. It is vital for organisations to understand the lineage of data, otherwise they cannot properly understand the data they use, and therefore cannot really rely on results based on data. Data lineage contributes to the definition and understanding of data quality, data ownership and governance, and to the operational questions of deciding what data to use in what circumstances.

Factil

Factil Information Modeling Platform

We help businesses to take a model-driven approach to tackle the complexity of information modeling and data integration in relational, data warehouse and NoSQL data environments.

With our platform, the enterprise business information model is defined in an easily understood, controlled natural language. From the business information model, the platform can generate well-structured data schemas in a number of forms, transformation code between these forms, and associated artefacts such as business glossaries and data dictionaries.

The platform provides:

Web-based Business Information Model editor
Automated model inference from from source metadata
Automated schema generation to relational, staging and data vault forms
Automated transformation code generation from application to staging, staging to raw data vault and raw data vault to business data vault schemas
Automated documentation generation including Business Glossary, Logical Data Model and export to ER modeling tools
Stacks Image 310
Factil comes out of the strong, Australian, fact based modeling community. The Factil platform contains different kinds of representations, also including data vault capabilities. What is shown here is the business level ORM (Object Role Model) diagram style, which has been around for quite some years, and which I admit do have some strong points. My primary disagreement lies in the area of simplicity and intuitiveness (which is hindered by the visual syntax elements). I do recommend approaches like this very complex tasks like for example complex public service systems or systems designed to take equipment to Mars (or other places where failure is not an option).
