HOPEX Information Architecture works integrated with Hopex platform. In other words, it enables you to improve your business goals and IT transformation by showing the key information about your organization in the clearest way.
- Data users don’t have a clear understanding of where the data come from, and whether it can be trusted or if it is accurate.

Three Layers of Data Modelling
Initialize Data Dictionary
Generate a data dictionary by extracting information from data source via ODBC
Reverse engineer aracı veritabanlarını sorunsuz bir şekilde reverse edebilmek için veriler doğrudan ODBC üzerinden alır.
Create SQL Code
Create SQL code based on physical items of the HOPEX repository (database, table, column) to a target DBMS format.
Database parameters can be customized either at a global level, or at a detailed level on a column or primary key, depending on the target DBMS.
Describe the transformations that happen to the data. Data lineage diagrams include:
- Applications, as well as technologies for external systems.
- Data origin, processing type, control measurement and subject.
- Different types of flows: standard and data flows (used when some new Data appear)
- Definition of where applications are used and by who.
Map data lineage to understand how data is transformed
Data Lineage Initialization
Based on the data flows existing in the repository, data lineage diagrams can be automatically initialized from a graph report
Graph report for the data usage of a business concept
Lineage between business and technical data
Understand how a business concept and a technical data are tied each other
Enables users to view links between business glossary and data dictionary
Data Usage in Applications
- View how applications use the data of a data dictionary
- Connect applications and data through data stores.
Quickly understand the impacts of change in a data dictionary
Provides traceability from business glossary, data dictionary and data usage in applications
Business Process Analysis Integration
Link data and processes through flows or data stores
The concept “Travel Package” is used in “Account Management”, “Track orders on internet” and “Research” processes
- Understand where data is used in processes to improve compliance to regulations.
- Understand the business criticality of a data
Assess Data Quality
- Assess data quality under the six dimensions of data quality including Completeness, Uniqueness, Timeliness, Consistency, Validation and Accuracy.
- Campaigns can be set up to assess data quality by various stakeholders in the organization
- Get a clear understanding of the data quality in your organization
- Proceed to remediation plans to improve data quality
- Categorize data based on its sensitivity. Define retention period for each data.
- This feature is common to HOPEX Privacy Management and HOPEX Information Architecture
Helps comply with Privacy Management regulations such as GDPR and CCPA
- Set up automated workflows between contributors to validate data models and quickly build a repository of data models
- Workflows are instantiated by data designers or data owners. All the other data contributors can sign off on the validation steps.
- Default workflows are for: data lineage, business, logical and Physical data models
Example of workflow for the validation of data models
Manage Data Policies
- Describe business directives and policies.
- Some standard regulatory requirements are provided out-of-the-box such as BCBS 239 and Solvency II.
BCBS239 regulatory requirements
Monitor Customizable Dashboards
- Monitor the level of data assets that are constrained by the articles and sections of regulations such as BCBS 239 or Solvency II
- Monitor the level of completion of the repository, e.g. the percentage of terms with a definition
- Monitor the progress of validation workflows for Data Lineage maps and data models
Monitor the level of data constrained by regulatory requirements and the percentage of terms with a definition
If we need to summarize HOPEX Information Architecture with a single sentence, information systems managers can ensure the correct use of information, minimize deviations at the level of execution, adapt to a layered approach to business asset science, associate information with corporate view and concept, and data models, assets. is the product that provides the tools they need to get awareness reports that show links between attributes and databases.
