According to a recent press release, “GoodData®, a leader in end-to-end analytics solutions, today announced the release of a new web-based logical data model (LDM) modeler. The new LDM modeler brings new capabilities and tooling and enables the simplification of data modeling when starting a new data product or extending existing enterprise reporting. The web-based LDM modeler compliments the recently released GoodData data source management interface, which enables easy connection to Google BigQuery, Amazon Redshift, Snowflake or a CSV file. When integrated together within GoodData’s interface, users gain the benefits of a single tool and can speed time to market for new data products as a result of better communication between teams taking care of physical data and those developing reporting, including the logical data model. This all supports GoodData’s semantic layer and its ability to simplify the complexity of data and make it more understandable to end-users.”
The release continues, “The key benefits of the GoodData semantic layer which is supported by our new LDM modeler includes: (1) Ease of use for non-technical users. The LDM modeler makes data more understandable for non-technical business users with lower data literacy because it simplifies understanding of the data semantics. This is in contrast to other situations when reports are built on top of source data. Typical business users don’t understand the data structure and meaning is hard to decipher. (2) Alignment between users. Relationships and metrics are key elements in GoodData’s semantic layer. With a shared data model, business analysts in different entities get consistent results wherever they are, which support the single version of truth provided by analytics.”
