The Data Dictionary is the space in which you build the structure for the database that will hold all your data properties, Entity related properties, Statistics, Commentaries, Disclaimers, Cultures, etc. It provides a framework for your data architecture. This makes it easier for data to be correctly stored when it is uploaded and to be accurately retrieved when it is called. The Data Dictionary is fully customizable meaning that it can be configured for any type of data as per a business’s needs. Data Dictionary items cannot be deleted, or removed from the system, data therefore must always match the correct structure, and adding new data types is easily achieved.
Fund Manager Key Facts (Properties)
Fund Manager Key Facts are usually associated with Fund or Class entity types.
Fund Manager Key Facts (properties) provide descriptive information regarding the Fund Manager, for example, their title, their bio, education, and duration with the company type of information.
Every property has various fields attached to it; a Property Name (label), Unique Code (code), Data Type, and Description.
The Property Name and Unique Code tend to have the same name, but the Unique Code is always written snake case with underscores in place of spaces. E.g. Job Title becomes job_title.
