Building Compatible Data and Information

Maxxphase Data Compatibility fits perfectly into most IT environments. Data Compatibility uses software tools that most organizations currently use in their data management efforts. A business’s current siloed data systems can be easily enhanced to become compatible data systems. With compatible data systems, all data is integrated at its source. All compatible data systems are directly interoperable and spontaneously form a Compatible Data Fabric.

Compatible business data and information upgrades your business by improving its 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. The current data management environment was developed to support a foundation of siloed data systems. The data compatibility assessment is used to define any work that needs to be addressed for enhancing the data foundation and related data systems. Assessing data compatibility readiness is a relatively straightforward process that includes, in part:

  • Evaluate current select data management tools to determine their support for the proposed upgraded data compatibility environment.
  • Analyze each data system to be enhanced, determining which data compatibility standards are needed to make that data system compatible.
  • Evaluate Data Compatibility Standards comprehensiveness to determine if suitable for use with the data systems to be enhanced.
  • This data compatibility assessment maps a detailed path to build your compatible business data environment. Based upon this assessment, detailed data compatibility project plans that include costs and implementation details are developed.

Data Compatibility Projects

After the data compatibility assessment is complete, the data compatibility projects work can begin. There are several major types of data compatibility projects that we define:

  • Siloed data system enhancement projects.
  • Consolidated and derived compatible data system projects.
  • Business architecture upgade projects.

Siloed data system enhancement projects are done to lay the data compatibility foundation for your business. Each data system is individually enhanced with our Data Compatibility Standards products to become a compatible data system. The result is the formation of a Compatible Data Fabric that utilizes compatible data systems as plug and play components. With development of each compatible data system, your Compatible Data Fabric grows.

Once the initial data compatibility foundation has been formed, consolidated and derived compatible data system projects can begin. Data from one or more compatible data systems may be used to build and maintain information that improves business reporting, business intelligence, and analytics performance.

Once a foundation of compatible data systems has been established, projects to upgrade your business’s enterprise architecture can commence. These enterprise architecture upgrades could entail data system retirement, or business mergers and acquisitions for example. Enterprise architecture upgrades will be required as the business grows and matures.
