Imagine an environment where all data systems collaborate and provide the information you need in a timely manner – whether it’s data form your own business, from multiple businesses, from an entire industry, or across multiple industries. Having direct access to all this consistent integrated data and information is a game-changing competitive advantage in today’s business environment.
Compatible Data is
Compatible data is integrated data. Compatible data systems are directly interoperable data systems which provide consistent data across these data systems. Data compatibility is the key to best in class data and information and is the foundation for creating a truly informed business.
In the past, data designers were oblivious to the compatibility of data across data systems. In the age of mainframe computing, interoperability among systems was not a priority. This led to the creation of incompatible data systems throughout the business world. The concept of data integration evolved over the past few decades as an approach to provide consistent data consolidated from a set of incompatible data systems. In today’s business environment, these antiquated data integration methods are too inefficient and often inadequate.
Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards are used to form compatible data systems. These Data Compatibility Standards provide common master data representations for all data systems. These Data Compatibility Standards resolve the conflicts in master data representations that are inherent in traditional data systems. Thus, when the Data Compatibility Standards are used with traditional data systems, these data systems are made compatible, directly interoperable and collaborative.
World-class data means you have access to whatever data you need when you need it. World-class data is trusted, accurate and at your fingertips in real time. It helps prepare your organization to face any and all challenges. Whether it’s used to inform or build long-term strategy or whether it’s to reach short-term goals, world-class data is ready to supply your company with the information it needs to thrive.
With Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards, you can:
- Retrieve trusted information when you need it
- Seamlessly combine data from an unlimited number of compatible data systems
- Directly enrich your data assets with compatible data from external data systems
- Provide unprecedented access to business intelligence data
- Remove duplicate data
- Slash hardware costs
- Eliminate conflicting data
Maxxphase “links” all your data so it acts as a single unified system, accessible and ready to use. This provides unparalleled insight into every aspect of your company. Uniting data in this manner is impossible with other data integration methods.
Once a data system is made compatible, it remains compatible. Data Compatibility Standards represent a target for data systems that is independent of business changes. Data compatibility creates a pro-growth platform for all your company’s data systems, allowing them to grow with your business.
Improves Data Quality
Traditional data systems are incompatible data systems with conflicting master data representations. This conflicting master data representation is a data quality problem that has largely gone unrecognized. While this conflicting master data representation may have been fine in the age of mainframes, it is woefully inadequate in the internet age. While most IT people understand the problems, they had no way to change the paradigm – until now!
From the shop floor to the boardroom, high-quality data is paramount. Organizations are investing in their data and information to ensure or improve data quality properties such as accessibility, timeliness, accuracy, reliability, consistency and completeness. However, data compatibility may be the most important data characteristic of all, and until now it's gone completely unacknowledged. Data compatibility is the one property that produces collaborative data systems which contain integrated data and information.
Data accessibility is greatly enhanced through data compatibility. Every traditional or conflicted data system is a solo act. All data is isolated and compartmentalized, trapped within individual traditional data systems. Data across conflicted data systems cannot be directly combined because the data is incompatible. In contrast, with compatible data systems, data from any compatible data system is now accessible from any and all other compatible data systems. Not only has direct data accessibility extended beyond a single data system, but now all data from any compatible data system can be combined. Data compatibility opens a whole new world of compatible data for your organization.
The completeness of data in conflicted data systems is limited to the scope of the single traditional data system. For example, to get a complete picture of customer data, the data needs to be collected from multiple conflicted data systems, requiring data transformations to resolve the conflicts. Specialized Customer Relationship Management data systems are developed to collect data from multiple conflicted data systems. On the other hand, with the collaboration of compatible data systems there is no limitation as to what data systems contain what customer data, for example. Therefore, the most complete version of any data is available no matter how data is dispersed across compatible data systems.
The timeliness of data is another important property of data. Whenever “data flow” software is required to duplicate data from one conflicted data system to another, the timeliness of data suffers. However, with compatible data systems, all data is automatically integrated from the time it is stored to the time it is deleted throughout the entire data universe of compatible data systems. Real-time data from any compatible data systems is available for use with appropriate data from any other compatible data systems. The timeliness of data is no longer an issue with compatible data systems.
The reliability, consistency and accuracy of master data is also managed by the Data Compatibility Standards. The consistency and accuracy of the master data needs to be precise to support direct interoperability among all compatible data systems. Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards ensures this is the case.
