The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) project which is moving towards the start of federal construction in 2014 is anticipated to acquire 150 terabytes of data every five days. Astronomers will use the new synoptic telescope to view and photograph a quarter of visible space every night starting sometime early in the next decade.
Data Management is one of the most challenging aspects of the LSST, as data must be processed and stored each night, producing the largest non-proprietary data set in the world. Enterprise Architect was chosen as the modeling environment because the project needed a multi-user, full featured UML tool with traceability support from requirements to code. The advances in these technology areas will be exported to other big data science applications (biology, remote sensing, etc) and will drive innovations in industry.

Model Led Development for Greenhouse Gas Reporting
Model led development is a very successful method of building ICT reporting systems. Once the model is stable, and data aggregated into a standard RDBMS, the same model can be used to generate the starter code for building specific interfaces from a variety of data sources and formats, in any of the common coding languages supported by Sparx Enterprise Architect.
