Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards are a combination of metadata and data content that produces a foundation of standardized master data for data systems. When a data system is enhanced with the Data Compatibility Standards, that data system becomes a compatible data system. The data from all compatible data systems are now integrated, and the data systems are directly interoperable. Compatible data systems are so much more powerful than today’s standalone data systems that they will be an essential foundation for any competitive, cutting-edge business.

What are the Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards?

Data Compatibility Standards are data products provided by Maxxphase. When these standards are noninvasively associated with a data system, the data system is now compatible. Compatible data systems link together to form a single consistent Compatible Data Fabric. This data fabric can seamlessly support the data needs for an entire business.

From a technical perspective, data compatibility standards are platform-independent, reusable data modeling objects used to build compatible data models. Each compatible data model is an integral component of a single consistent model of your business’s integrated data architecture. This integrated data architecture may also include as components the compatible data models from external organizations such as strategic partners or suppliers.

Compatible data models are used to implement compatible data systems, which are directly interoperable and that support Standards-Based Data Integration. The data of any compatible data system may be directly and dynamically combined with the data of any other compatible data systems. Therefore, the scope of an organization’s integrated data architecture is unlimited, so long as compatible data systems are available.

Using Data Compatibility Standards

Using Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards is simple: just include the standards in any physical data systems to make these systems compatible with each other. The standards “link” your data systems together while preserving your business data and your data structures. These “linked” physical data systems form a seamlessly collaborative Compatible Data Fabric that automatically integrates data across your “linked” data systems.

Data compatibility standards can be applied for many uses, including:

  • Automatically integrating all your organization’s data
  • Integrating data from the lowest level transactions of your operational data systems, to the aggregate data of the CEO’s dashboard, and everything in between
  • Making all your data systems directly interoperable and collaborative
  • Providing the functionality of a data warehouse to each compatible data system
  • Building a seamless Compatible Data Fabric, where all your data and information is available whenever and wherever it’s needed
  • Linking to compatible data systems from other organizations while operating within their security constraints.

Data Compatibility Standards allow you to incrementally build your Compatible Data Fabric to integrate data across all your compatible data systems.

How do Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards work?

Data Compatibility Standards improve a business’s access to data and information. When data systems are made compatible, the information each system contains is automatically integrated with the data from other compatible data systems. This includes operational or transactional data systems, master data management systems, business intelligence systems, and content management systems. All data from all compatible data systems are directly accessible and may be used in whatever combinations are possible.

From a technical perspective, the Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards form a common foundation that can be associated with any data system. This common foundation makes a data system compatible. Any compatible data system can be seamlessly linked with any other compatible data systems through their copies of the common foundation. All data from a compatible data system is directly or indirectly related to that foundation. Therefore, any data within the compatible data system is related to any other data in any compatible data systems. This approach overcomes the compartmentalized data of traditional data systems.

The Data Compatibility Standards also form reliable data access paths between compatible data systems. These access paths make compatible data systems directly interoperable and support joining data from multiple compatible data systems. These copies of the common foundation form a single network of collaborative data systems, which builds your business's Compatible Data Fabric. All of your data, stored as if it existed in a single consistent environment, contains any and all the data business leaders need to run and grow their organizations.

Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards gives your organization access to far more integrated data than is available with traditional data integration methods.
