DATA IMPORT TOOLING + DATA INTEGRATION ENGINE + ANALYTICS ENGINE = UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY ADVANTAGE
Our deep, proven technology platform has been solving real world, big data problems for customers of all sizes. Constantly being improved for over ten years, our technology stack includes next generation data import tooling, a leading-edge data integration engine that combines both real time extract transform load (ETL) and data virtualization technologies, and an analytics engine.
Our platform is fully integrated enabling data to be seamlessly flow between each component of our technology on its journey of being transformed for consumption by users and systems. We can quickly assemble the components of our technology stack to serve the unique needs of our customers.
Our tooling covers the full lifecycle of data import – data discovery, validation, modeling, mapping, migration and analytics. It is collaborative, enterprise grade tooling that streamlines the process of transforming raw data stored in multiple databases and tables into useable form. It leverages our data virtualization, data integration engine, and analytics engine to provide a unified environment where users have the power and agility to discover, shape and flow complex raw datasets. Whether it is importing customer or vendor data onto your platform or transforming raw data stored in legacy systems for use by a data warehouse, Accur8’s tooling will drive dramatic productivity gains for your data import team while improving your customer’s experience.
Our Integration Engine combines both ETL and data virtualization technologies. This means we can integrate data between many systems physically or virtually as required. Our ETL technology is driven by our own visual mapping tool which maps the pathway of data from source to target systems. The Accur8 Integration Engine has the ability to seamlessly integrate data from both on-premise and cloud-based systems. It also has a streaming engine that routinely handles hundreds of millions of transactions a day in real time. Depending on your requirements Accur8 can move data between systems on a row or table level and on a real time, triggered, or scheduled basis.
The diagram below describes how the Accur8 Integration Engine uses data virtualization for data and application integration. The first step is to model each of the underlying data sources to a metadata repository. This includes the schema, location of tables, type of joins, security and other key bits of information for each data source. The resultant metadata repository contains a detailed map on how to locate all the underlying data in each database. To access the data a user (which can be a person or a software program) directly queries the virtual data layer. From here, the request is automatically processed by the Accur8 Integration Engine that augments it with pertinent information pulled from the metadata repository in real time. This, in turn, creates a transformed query that can retrieve and stitch together data from multiple data sources back into a single result set, thereby providing a unified view of, and access to, the underlying data for other applications and users to consume. The Accur8 Integration Engine handles all the typical back-end issues such as security, business logic, auditing, monitoring, etc. that typically make integrating disparate data overwhelmingly complex and expensive. It also provides the ability to create, update or delete information in the underlying data sources in real time. In other words, data virtualization enables company to unify and use all, or some, of its data, regardless of data source or format, without building out complex data warehouses, or managing expensive infrastructure.
The Accur8 Analytics Engine provides high performance analytics drawn from data across a company’s organization. It is designed to provide deep drilldowns and rich insight into data from multiple sources. Our Analytics Engine leverages our data virtualization technology to provide a very flexible, self-serve experience for users. It is also highly customizable so each user gets the views they need to perform their job.
Accur8’s software has been built over ten years solving real data problems for our customers and covers a large surface area related to data import and data integration. This includes next generation data import tooling, data virtualization, real time data integration, and analytics. Our technology is used by companies in the defence, health care, insurance, billing, software, and education industries. We have the ability to configure our technology stack to quickly and cost effectively deliver the solutions that meet the needs of your business.
