INFORMATION & KNOWLEDGE
Nobody cares about data. The only thing that matters is the information: the meaningful message business processes exchange to enable the value chain to function smoothly. And if this message can instruct the next process in the chain regarding what needs to happen and how, we have an IT landscape that supports the business processes as efficiently as an expert-to-expert interaction would - but on a scale that would not be feasible without IT automation!
Traditional IT systems cannot store information. Or can they?
Traditional IT systems can only store data: bits and bytes without unambiguous meaning. The interpretation of that data is up to the human expert that is using the system. But what if that interpretation could be captured in a machine-readable way and linked to the data in the systems, so that any human - and any other system - would be able to look at the data and understand the message it carries? And what if the "why" and "what now" of that message could be linked to the message too? In other words, is Data Singularity possible? We believe - and we have proven - that it is.
MANY TRUE TRUTHS
Every process has its own perspective on the real-world things it works with. Some will see the complex financial aspects and capture the granularity required to perform statutory reporting of transactions; the others will be concerned with the manufacturing and recipe details; others yet will be satisfied with a high-level logistical perspective. Which one is right? The answer is: they all are. From their own perspective. Instead of forcing them to accept on "global" truth, we shall allow each of them to operate within their own viewpoint, using their own set of terms and values. And since they are all talking about the same things, these viewpoints will be connected to each other to form a multi-dimensional reflection of reality relevant to the business.
If every process sees the world differently, so do the IT systems that support these processes. To operate the information coming from multiple systems, we should not try and invent a new "language" all these systems should be translated into. Instead, we should do what human interpreters do: understand the way every system refers to real-world things touched by the processes they support, and translate it into the language of the other systems.
Embrace the unknown unknowns
No single business process is easy, let alone operating across multiple processes or process value chains. On one hand, there is the need for the rigorous (and time-consuming) analysis to be done before building systems to report upon or support these processes. On the other, rarely do the enterprises have the luxury of all the time necessary to get there. Stakeholders want to see results, not analysis documents. Engineers want to be sure they build upon the understanding that is not going to change. Change is expensive.
That is, unless you models are flexible and can obfuscate the change from the target systems. We believe in models that grow and evolve together with our knowledge of the business, and yet are able to support the IT development from day one.
FROM DATA TO KNOWLEDGE
A digital clone of your business expressed in data, information, and knowledge.
Accessible to both human and machine, it enables your processes and applications to seamlessly talk to each other.
It also harvests self-maintaining data catalogue, lineage, and more, and evolves together with your business.
Available for use within 2 sprints and infinitely flexible, it provides true foundational agility to your digital initiatives.
Provisdng process and system interoperability within your landscape - with no disruption to your running business.
Accelerating business analysis and capturing the outcomes in a way that is accessible to both humans and machines, our method enables you to feed your new digital applications, analytical platforms, or AI implementations all within a couple of sprints, - and on zero impact of change.
Free and opensource tooling that runs on any platform and works with any source and target
DataSingularity Toolkit is the engine that makes your Digital Universe go round. It can be used in the cloud and on-premise, carries no license costs, and is easy to embed into your IT landscape (and out Information Engineers will make sure to do just that, as well as to transition the knowledge into your organisation).
It is synergetic with your current or envisioned Data Management, Data Lake or Analytics implementations, and, together with our method, enables you to drive even more value from these initiatives.
Leaving you in good hands after the engagement
As part of our engagement, we will transition our method to your internal experts. We perform full hand-over of our deliverable, training your experts in our method and technology, and offering you support services - with special conditions for your Certified Semantic Architects and graduates from our Partnerships for a Better World programs.
