POWER’s data services focus on assuring the quality of data and the best use of data management strategies. We provide services to assess data quality, whether it’s for data acceptance, data migration, ongoing database maintenance, or an independent, unbiased data review. We offer an opportunity to improve cost efficiency associated with spatial database creation and maintenance.
Our team looks at your applications and process and helps identify changes that may provide higher levels of data integrity. In addition, our data services are designed to transfer skills to you and your staff for ongoing data management, which enables improvements of your operations and cost efficiencies.
We help to determine which conversion techniques will best support your existing business processes, data, and standards. Our services may include the evaluation, selection, and management of data conversion vendors.
POWER provides oversight of data conversion activities, beginning with development of the conversion plan. We work with conversion vendors or your staff to define how converted data will be measured against the project’s data quality requirements. This results in a documented set of quality assurance procedures to ensure the quality of delivered data.
Programmatic Data Migration
Our data migration services help streamline your data sources into one fully integrated business system. Our experience shows that realizing this goal requires a structured methodology to ensure a complete and successful migration. Migration activities may include:
- Evaluate applications, functionality, and data to be migrated
- Map source data to target system
- Execute a migration process that typically improves the quality of the data during migration
- Develop automated routines and interactive tools used in the correction of data quality issues
We help select the right data maintenance strategies for your project to ensure data integrity â€“ initially and for ongoing data management.
These strategies include:
- Data health checks
- Data cleanup
- Data inventory reports
We monitor the accuracy of source data being introduced into the GIS, formulate a plan for correcting any data errors, and implement tools and processes to resolve errors and maintain the quality of data through ongoing inventory reports and data wellness programs.
We specialize in spatial database design that matches your needs for integration and application use. Our team of skilled consultants reviews existing data in conjunction with application, interface, and operational requirements to produce a robust data model. The resultant data model leverages existing data and POWERâ€™s industry knowledge to meet client-specific requirements. Fast and efficient modeling tools and methods are utilized to meet the stated data and performance requirements.
