Our suite of compatible data system services has three main goals:

  • To implement compatible data systems for your organization,
  • To build a compatible business data environment from compatible data systems, and
  • To provide business data solutions from compatible data systems.

Data compatibility fits perfectly into most IT environments, as it transforms a business’s current incompatible data environment into a compatible one where all data is integrated through directly interoperable data systems. The compatible business data environment transformation impacts your business by improving efficiency, agility and business information synergy. Maxxphase and our strategic partners provide whichever data compatibility-related services your organization needs.


Assessing Data System Compatibility Readiness

A data compatibility readiness assessment is often part of the planning phase and the first service provided to our customers. This assessment will define the requirements for converting your existing incompatible data systems into a compatible data system. Assessing data compatibility readiness is a relatively simple process:

  1. Determine accessibility to the data of each data system.
  2. Determine the connectivity among data systems of interest.
  3. Analyze each data system to determine which data compatibility standards are needed to make that data system compatible.

This data compatibility assessment maps a detailed path to build your compatible business data environment. Detailed data compatibility projects are planned based on this assessment.

Designing your Compatible Business Data Environment

The compatible business data environment design is a new innovation used to design an entire compatible data environment for any organization. This compatible data environment includes data and information from third parties to which your organization may wish to directly interact.

Your compatible business data environment design is reliant upon the direct interoperability of compatible data models – data models that “fit” together. The model of your compatible business data environment is used to:

  • Provide a “roadmap” of all compatible data systems used by your business,
  • Design and visualize the direct interoperability between compatible data systems, and
  • Design and visualize data security access for your compatible data systems by a variety of audiences.

Your compatible business data environment begins with compatible data models of each compatible data system. Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards, in each compatible data model, defines the common relationships that link these compatible data systems. The compatible data model for each compatible data system then becomes an integral component in the compatible business data environment model.

Each compatible data model is a high-level reusable data modeling object. These reusable compatible data models may be shared with any organization with which you wish to share compatible data, allowing your organization to instantly connect to business partners, third-party master data providers, industry-specific data providers and more. Likewise, any organization may share their reusable compatible data models with your organization if they want you to have direct access to their compatible data systems. This directly interoperable type of data sharing is unprecedented in today’s IT industry.

Building the Compatible Business Data Environment

Compatible data systems are implemented from their compatible data model. Whether this is a new compatible data system or an existing traditional data system converted to a compatible data system, these data systems need to have their data compatibility standards properly maintained to provide data links across compatible data systems.

Each compatible data system, whether internal or external, becomes an integral component of the compatible business data environment. The business manages internal compatible data systems and direct interoperability with the external compatible data systems, while external data systems are managed by their external organizations. Data aggregations may also be developed by directly combining automatically integrated data from both internal and external data systems as needed in order to support business intelligence requirements. This support of business intelligence is only possible with interoperable data systems.

For the first time, your organization will have an interoperable business data environment where all data is integrated and directly accessible to be used in combinations that were never before available with traditional standalone data systems. So, whichever data compatible related services you may need, turn to Maxxphase for their expertise.
