In an earlier post (IBM Planning Analytics Data Modelling with Context) I stated that when modeling data as part of a planning analytics solution design, context clues should be developed, through a process referred to as profiling and then “built in” to the data.
In the past, data to be modeled came from a single source and was provided in the same format, typically transactions from a general ledger system. In today’s data driven world, project data can come from a variety of places which, potentially, can influence the data’s possible meaning or value, effect how you model and use it and ultimately, whether it will provide insights the business can in fact leverage.
So, what is model serviceability?
Often you hear about performing an application design review on a IBM Planning Analytics model where both coding and implementation “styles” are compared against “industry proven” practices. During the process, naming conventions, dimensionalities, rule-vs-process strategies, (just to name a few items) are studied and assessed.
