Data analytics is currently a topic that is popular in academia and in industry. This is one form of bottom-up analysis, where insights are gained by analyzing data. System dynamics is the opposite, a top-down methodology, by gaining insight by analyzing the big picture. The merging of the two methodologies can possibly provide greater insight. What greater insight that can be gained is research that will be required in the future. The focus of this paper will be on the software connections for such a framework and how it can be automated. An analysis of the individual parts of the combined framework will be conducted along with current software tools that may be used. Lastly, a proposed software architecture design will be described.
