Data compatibility is a standards-based data integration method in which the Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards promotes direct data interoperability between compatible data systems. Automatic data integration among compatible data systems is a byproduct of direct data interoperability. 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 used to link any and all data systems together to form a single consistent integrated business data environment. This environment seamlessly supports all data needs for the entire business. This integrated data environment may also include data systems external to the organization, such as strategic partners or data suppliers.

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 data suppliers.

Compatible data models are used to implement compatible data systems,which are directly interoperable and that support automatic 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 business data environment 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
  • Building a seamless virtual business data environment, 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 business data environment to automatically integrate data across many compatible data systems. This includes third-party data systems and even external industry-specific 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 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 is directly accessible and may be used in whatever combinations are possible.

From a technical perspective the Maxxphase Data Compatibility Standards form a common framework which can encapsulate any data system. This common framework may be seamlessly linked with any other copy of the common framework. All data from a data system encapsulated within a copy of the common framework is then related to that framework. Therefore, any data within the common framework is related to any other data encapsulated in any copy of the common framework.

The Data Compatibility Standards also form reliable data access paths between compatible data systems to support joining data from multiple compatible data systems. These copies of the common framework form a single network of collaborative data systems, which builds your business’s new and more comprehensive data environment. 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.
