General view hourglass



The hourglass model is a specific model for the transformation of data sources to a standardized model in a target datastore. It is the simplified implementation of a layered Big Data architecture. The hourglass model can be used to medel specific implementations of transformation of data in a pattern called the datapipe.

In a number of other diagrams a detail view is given of these implementations in projects like Digital Transformation, TDP, MaxLimit and others.
