With the recent rush for GDPR compliance, we wanted to show you how simple the extension of new data model requirements can be in CaseTalk. It's a simple two step procedure to mark all elements sensitive to privacy violations as such. But first of all, the GDPR definition:

 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

Superseding the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, the regulation contains provisions and requirements pertaining to the processing of personally identifiable information of individuals (formally called data subjects in the GDPR) inside the European Union, and applies to all enterprises, regardless of location, that are doing business with the European Economic Area.

De volgende Full Scale Data Architect ontmoeting zal plaatsvinden in Utrecht. Ron Nagtegaal zal aldaar de architectuur van ProRail presenteren. ProRail gebruikt al jaren de feitgebaseerde aanpak en het gereedschap CaseTalk. Ron Nagtegaal is de lead Data Architect en werkt al meer dan 10 jaar aan de architectuur en zal een proof of concept presenteren. Deze casus toont hoe de data architectuur de diverse taaldomeinen binnen ProRail integreert en ingezet kan worden om op een uniforme wijze diverse systemen te integreren. Het stelt de organisatie in staat om op te stijgen uit de welbekende landschap van software silos.

Ron presenteert de architectuur en zijn ideëen over model management en de uitdagende werkomgeving waarin gepoogd wordt te werken met het concept “model once, develop anywhere". Hij zal samen met Marco Wobben ook spreken over hoe architectuur met multi-user, multi-model, multi-version te hanteren. Er zal ruimte zijn voor vraag en antwoord aangaande de architectuur en het spanningsveld tussen backlog, werkafspraken en toolsupport.

Meetup registration is no longer possible, but the slides are here.

After solving many issues along the way, and implementing lot's of features during many, many cycles, we feel we need to bump CaseTalk towards a new major version number. CaseTalk 8 has received hundreds of updated and features over its lifetime. Now version 9 adds well over 70 changes to it's release and some great new improvements.

CaseTalk Modeler 8.30 - The Valentine Hotfix

valentineWe started improving some of the drag and drop features in CaseTalk, when a blocking issue came up. If you're working on models containing custom attributes, the GLR transformation may stop. For this stopping issue, we created this hotfix where you'll get interface improvements earlier then scheduled as a special valentine gift.
