Pattern based
model-to-model conversion

Patterns are everywhere!

If you look at nature you can recognize patterns in everything that grows. Patterns helped shape the world we live in. In physics, biology and in mathematics. With this in mind we reinvented QUIPU.

As BI experts we focused on automation of the data warehouse. But looking at this from a distance we can only conclude that a data warehouse is nothing but a set of patterns. As are data migration, big data applications, specific data transformations and so on and so forth.

Over the years we met many customers with their specific data management needs. And still every time experts tend to sit down and use the tools at hand to start building the same solution they built over and over again. Repeating the same boring tasks they did before to achieve the same results. This is exactly where a good expert distinguishes himself from a mediocre one. By searching for means that automate these boring tasks. Leaving the complex and hence the fun stuff to the expert to solve.

That is precisely why we reinvented QUIPU. To provide a platform based on a metadata repository that can automate whatever data management challenge. By creating and adding custom building blocks together with our customers to grow the capabilities of the platform. Using templates, that customers can maintain themselves to allow for implementation of the solution in their particular application landscape.

Pattern-based model-to-model conversions and automation are a perfect match!
