Date Quality and Transformation Overview
Government agencies and commercial enterprises large and small are experiencing pressure to reduce operating costs and increase quality. Central to reaching these goals is increasing operations process automation while simplifying IT infrastructure and management systems. Programs to modernize management systems environments can be large and complex involving many systems and hundreds of information sources. A critical success factor for these system modernization programs is having complete, accurate and timely data. Poor data quality will not only slow these programs, it will additionally balloon their budgets which would ultimately lead to failure, and will also lead to failed operations processes and erroneous business decision making. Poor data quality in management systems is typically a systemic issue in industry and government.
Our Data Quality and Transformation services can position your business for success by leveraging ACS domain knowledge, data expertise and innovative tools to create solutions for data-intensive operations and business problems. Applied Communication Sciences has applied our data transformation, reconciliation and analysis capabilities to solve large-scale challenges for government agencies and global commercial enterprises. The results are accurate data “clean-up” necessary before and after system migration and consolidation, ongoing reduction of data inconsistencies to reduce errors and increase operations automation and forensic analysis of multiple related but inconsistent databases.
Methodologies and Tools
Effective data quality requires an in-depth understanding of data and how it is used in various applications and a comprehensive methodology for data analysis, transformation and on-going maintenance. ACS approaches data quality holistically to obtain a cross-system and operational view of the data to identify definitive data sources and identify causes of inconsistencies and operational problems. Our methodologies address the following areas as critical components of our planning and execution of data migration and system consolidation projects.
Automation is critical for cost-effectively addressing data quality and transformation issues. Our Arroyo tool automates the data transformation process allowing visual exploration of data for pattern detection. Arroyo’s graphical interface and flexible execution environment allows rapid building of solutions. Unlike other available industry tools which typically support only batch processing and slow error assessment and adjustments, Arroyo’s unique platform avails live interactive data discrepancy visualization, building the solution, making refinements and producing the reports you require without the need for software development changes. Arroyo is a high performance tool which scales up to the most demanding transaction volumes involving terabytes of data and billions of records. Arroyo has the capability to read data sources in many formats including unstructured text documents to extract named entities, events and relationships and sort, classify, compare, transform and store the data in various ways. Arroyo has been successfully used in many large client engagements to migrate and consolidate huge physical and service inventory systems, improve complex operations, request fulfillment processes and reconcile billions of dollars in inter-company billing claims.
