    Datasource Consulting and Universal Data Models Announce Strategic Partnership

    Jul 22, 2014 in Data Architecture, Press Release

    July 21, 2014 – Denver, Colorado.  Datasource Consulting, a leading Enterprise Information Management and Data Warehouse consultancy serving large enterprise customers throughout the United States; and, Universal Data Models, LLC., the pioneers of industry data models for the Enterprise Information Management and Data Warehouse industries, formed a partnership focusing on delivering unparalleled solutions using universal industry and common data models paired with a proven methodology that embraces Agile and Lean principles.  This partnership supports Datasource Consulting’s on going initiative to deliver fast, innovative solutions to its clients in the healthcare, financial, retail and pharmaceutical industries.

    The partnership between Universal Data Models templates and Datasource Consulting’s proven methodologies will enable enterprises to solve their data warehouse and analytic initiatives more quickly and effectively.  This will result in lower cost and faster implementation than building models and methodologies from scratch.

    Enterprises are becoming more and more complex.  This requires the data models created by Data Architects to become more complex and perform at a higher level.  Data Modelers and Data Architects are consistently being asked by enterprises, to deliver quick and accurate information.  This puts pressure on Data Modelers to deliver high performing models that convey the needs of the business.  Data modeling can take many years and cost an enterprise several hundreds of thousands of dollars to successfully complete.  Universal Data Models, LLC. has developed a series of models that have helped enterprises build integrated data warehouses, master data management systems, and integrated data management services, saving a great deal of time on their modeling efforts and having a very high degree of quality.

    “Building an effective data model in a reasonable amount of time can be truly challenging.  We’re really excited about the partnership with Universal Data Models because it will allow us to move more quickly in the development phase of a project and help a client see results more quickly,” said Steve Dine, Founder of Datasource Consulting.  “We’ve known Len for a number of years and the partnership just seems like a natural fit.”

    “We’re pleased to be partnering with Datasource Consulting.  As a Premier Channel Partner for Informatica, they are routinely developing high quality models for their clients.  I like their models.  They do good quality work; however, our models will help them perform their tasks much more quickly,” said Len Silverston, Founder of Universal Data Models.
