The data management service line provides full spectrum data storage solutions. This includes creating and managing databases and creating data pipelines to move data between systems. It also includes creating data governance policy for system management and regulatory compliance. Additionally, this service provides strategic guidance to firms on the use of their data.
The Data Management service line provides the following service offerings:
System Conversions – We provide data professionals the ability to move data from mainframes running on COBOL to systems that run on modern relational database management systems. We are agnostic to toolset and technology. It doesn’t matter if the end product runs SQL Server, Oracle, is using an ERP like Microsoft Dynamics or JD Edwards, or if it is using a tool like SSIS or Informatica. We can service all of these needs.
Data Warehouse Initiatives – If an organization does not have an existing data warehouse, we can help them step up their enterprise analytics efforts by creating a business intelligence platform. Building out a data warehouse enables what is called 360-degree analysis. Data is then stored in such a way that it enables self-serve analytics. We also support upgrades and maintenance for existing data warehouses.
Initial Hadoop Deployments – Sometimes, organizations have SO MUCH data that it can’t be stored cheaply or effectively. This is where a Hadoop deployment comes in. Hadoop deployments are incredibly complex and require us to work closely with the client’s existing IT resources. A myriad of use cases for deploying Hadoop are available. In general, Hadoop significantly lowers the total cost of ownership of your data.
Outsourced Chief Data Officer – Data is a competitive necessity. Data has an ever-increasing role in gaining an edge in the marketplace. With data’s strategic value, it only makes sense to have an individual in the C-suite responsible for driving data strategy. Many firms do not have this position. We can fill that gap in staffing.
