Data literacy

Drive productive data conversations

Let’s face it, talking data with non-data experts can be a challenge. In short term, it makes communication complicated, but the bigger issue is that it slows down the adoption of data across the company.  Ellie helps you avoid this pitfall, by giving you the tools to understand each other and drive productive data conversations.

Using high-level visual conceptual data models enables you to explain exactly what you mean to your peers with ease and the business glossary lets you talk the same language across the whole organization.

02

Collaborate

Collaborate with your teams on the fly

Just send a link to your Ellie model, and let everyone quickly jump in and start working on your product design in a matter of seconds. No need to install any software, share pdfs and images, or have month-long email conversations. And if you don’t know where to start, use one of our brainstorming frameworks and model templates to kick off your session with a clear process. Ellie helps you work with your company peers and get things sorted right here, right now!

03

Grow business involvement

Exponentially growing interest towards data

Let everyone across your organization be more curious and smarter about data without any coding or tool experitiese. As you start using Ellie in your company, business users get curious too, and quickly start exploring it as their map of meaning for all things data. As a result, the adoption is exponential and more people become open to data within your organization.
On average, for each Ellie creator, there are 6.3 business users across our customers.

01

Business Focused

Collaboration is the key when building a business-oriented Data Warehouse

When building a Data Warehouse, the best and most future-proof approach is to design the DW according to your actual business needs and concepts instead of source system structures. To do so, Ellie makes cooperation between domain experts and data teams fast and simple. It results in business-driven conceptual data models which act as a blueprint of the entire Data Warehouse. Ellie lets you get the fundamentals right, and you start building, helping ensure that your data initiative continuously maintains the linkage with your business objectives.

02

Data Vault Ready

Easily derive Data Vault models from Ellie models

Data Vault methodology is increasingly popular, and at its core, it's about identifying and utilizing the key business concepts of the enterprise.


Ellie offers a clear and easy process when kicking off your data warehouse discussions. Helping you define a clear plan before jumping into technicalities, and letting you share it with ease when implementing your design. Our approach is tried and tested to work with Data Vault across multiple enterprises and helps companies succeed in this initiative.

03

Reusability

The reusability of conceptual data models

The reusability of conceptual data models is what makes them so great. Staying high-level lets you define data structures that are valuable and usable regardless of the initiative. You can be creating a data vault for your data warehouse initiative, but as your design is based on the business reality, you can reuse it for other data products, for example:
When you design an invoicing data model, you can also use it when implementing new automation capabilities, or renewing your Finance ERP System.

Your Customer Management designs can be applied when renewing a CRM system

If you’ve created conceptual data models around your Logistics domain, the same models can be used when trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across your chain.

04

Integration with Automation Tools

Automate & speed up Data Warehouse

To make your workflow more efficient, Ellie offers integrations with some of the most widely adopted data vault automation tools on the market. This means, that once you’ve designed your data models on a higher level, you can easily use them in your development tools like Wherescape, VaultSpeed, and Datavault Builder via one of the integrations:
File-based export/import via CSVs with JSON format
