Envision for MarkLogic Data Hub is a suite of applications that provides graphical data modeling and exploration of your MarkLogic Data Hub. The tool provides you with a no-code solution to creating a semantically enriched Entity Services data model by simply drawing graphs. Designed for data architects and business stakeholders who collaborate on data models, Envision gives users a graphical user interface to create representations of business entities and the relationships between them. Envision is composed of three components:

  • Connect provides a whiteboard-like canvas using circles and lines for modeling the key business concepts required to solve a business problem by expressing them as entities and relationships. Circles are your entities and lines are the relationships between them.
  • Explore is an Entity Explorer for visualizing the results of data harmonized using the model created in “Connect”. Once you’ve run your data hub’s mapping and mastering flows, it provides a searchable graph for your Data Hub.
  • Know is a simple graph viewer to visualize graphs and relationships in a Data Hub and understand context. MarkLogic Data Hub makes use of its native triplestore by building a sophisticated semantic model underneath your entities and their relationships. Envision Know is the place to go to explore the ontological dimensions of your Data Hub.

Note: Envision for MarkLogic Data Hub is a community tool. As such, it is not supported by MarkLogic Corporation and is only updated and corrected based on a best-effort approach. Any contribution or feedback is welcomed to make the tool better. Envision is designed to run on MarkLogic 10.0-2 with DHF 5.1.0 installed.
