Ecosystem Modeling

Too often project teams have modeled databases and designed applications under the dictate of limited resources, time and budget. As a result, data are processed in silos that are not integrated and even in conflict with their "ecosystem" *.

Although the size of the ecosystem can be as large as planet Earth (and for some scientific projects certainly go further), there is no need to "boil the proverbial ocean", but to respect the factors that have an impact on an endeavors's integration with its environment.

This been said, here a some typical project-external influence factors that define the size of the related ecosystem:

  • Logic & Common Sense
  • Culture
    • Ethical norms
    • Human Rights
  • Laws & regulations
    • International
    • National
    • Local
  • Norms & standards
