Data modeling design and review

The Connext databus is a data-centric software framework for distributing and managing real-time data. It allows applications and devices to work together as one, integrated system. The databus simplifies application and integration logic with a powerful data-centric paradigm: instead of exchanging messages, software components communicate via shared data objects.

Establishing an appropriate data model is central to efficient interactions with the databus. Connext DDS understands your data and can perform actions that would otherwise have to be developed in your applications, such as selective filtering. But Connext DDS also imposes rules and guarantees defined through Quality of Service (QoS) parameters such as rate, reliability and security of your data flow.

Your data model is critical to maximizing the value from the Connext databus. The data model can impact your application logic, when and how often communication happens, and how the databus works on your behalf. Work with our Professional Services team to ensure your data model is optimized for your system.

What's Involved

If you’re getting started with Connext DDS, an expert will work your team to understand your data flows, system topology, and overall requirements to help you craft a data model that addresses both type definition and QoS.

If you’ve already developed a data model and want to know if you’re on the right track, an expert can review your work thus far and provide feedback, identify optimizations, and assess risk.
