Integrating Data In Place

Standards-Based Data Integration is a new method for integrating data from multiple data systems in place. No data movement and no data transformations are needed! Standards-Based Data Integration is a unique and very innovative method that integrates entire data systems by making them compatible.

Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards are non-invasively associated with each data system to provide a foundation of master data content and master metadata commonality. This foundation of commonality supports two essential features. Each data system becomes anchored to the foundation, and the foundation offers a means to join data systems together reliably. Therefore, this foundation of data commonality integrates the data in your data systems, so it fits together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.

The Business Perspective

Traditional Data Integration methods are very challenging and resource-intensive. The volume of data is ever-growing, and IT data integration efforts are trailing further behind. By merely enhancing a data system with our Data Compatibility Standards, that data system becomes compatible with any other data systems that have also been enhanced to be data compatible. From these now compatible data systems, all data are integrated across data systems. You have direct access to all the connected information available from your compatible data systems. Standards-Based Data Integration is straightforward, faster, better, and cheaper than traditional data integration methods could ever hope to be.

The Technical Perspective

Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards provide a foundation of standardized metadata and standardized master data content to which all data would be related. When a data system is anchored to this standardized master data foundation, that data system becomes compatible with any other data system anchored to its copy of this standardized foundation.

Since these standardized foundations enforce data integrity among compatible data systems, reliable data access paths are formed between all data systems' standardized foundations. When a data system is made compatible by compliance with Data Compatibility Standards, all the data of that data system is integrated with the data from any other compatible data systems. Since no data transformations are used for data integrations, compatible data systems are also directly interoperable. Direct data interoperability supports the direct sharing of data among these compatible data systems.


Data silos are the unintended artifact of the traditional data modeling methodology. Standards-Based Data Integration repairs this data silo condition while integrating entire data systems in place and across data systems. Standards-Based Data Integration is simple to implement and provides a solution more fitting with current business needs than any other type of data integration. But, with Maxxphase Data Compatibility, there is so much more. Standards-Based Data Integration does not use data transformations and as such, provides direct and dynamic data interoperability among data systems. With direct data interoperability among your compatible data systems, an enhanced data fabric is automatically formed to provide a 360ᴼ view of all your data.
