Adetiq is the UK based specialist in end-to-end data management, our experience of handling data across wide ranging industries over the past 50 years, means that we have processes and systems in place to ensure an effective, accurate solution from start to finish. Every data project is different, however the underlying principles of how data should be managed to ensure accuracy and validity remains the same.
At Adetiq, we have a suite of services that can be mixed and matched, according to the requirements of each client. Data Transformation, Data Validation and Data Maintenance are three key areas that frequently prove to be problematic for our clients, but are easily overcome by our expertise and technologies.
Data Transformation and Migration
Data Transformation refers to the process of converting data or information from one format to another. This can include from hard copy documents to digital formats or from the format of a source system into the required format of a new destination system. Often this requires a detailed understanding of the source data and format, as well as the destination data requirements.
Our specialist systems make the process of data transformation significantly less complex.
You tell us what data you have, and ultimately what you are looking to achieve, and we will do the rest. We'll document the entire process, creating workflows so that you have a complete audit trail of the process and our technical team will ensure that our systems are programmed to the unique requirements of your project to ensure that the resultant data is accurate, complete and that the process is entirely efficient.
Data Migration is associated with the transfer of business data either from one source to another. Once the data transformation has been completed, we will migrate the data back to you according to our agreed process flows. Migration can be in real-time directly into any system specified, or can be returned as data files for you to process onwards according to your own requirements or can be batch returned, whereby the data is automatically transferred at agreed intervals throughout the day.
Our data validation processes have specifically been established to meet the needs of our existing clients. In order to accurately process data, it is essential to validate that the data submitted is accurate at source.
Examples of source data:
- Historic / legacy database
- Inherited database through merger or acquisition
- Working 'live' systems databases
- Entered by your internal personnel
- Entered by customers / information provided by customers
- Automated data transfers from other organisations
Without any formalised data verification processes, data can quickly become highly inaccurate, which has a knock on affect to all business operations which use the data contained within your systems.
Having an active data verification process will ensure that:
- Any errors are spotted and rectified quickly
- Historic data is refreshed and kept up to date
- Old data is archived or removed
- Correct information can be requested from customers/staff members to ensure timely onwards processing
Ensuring that your business benefits from current, robust and complete data, which maximises time and cost efficient as well as confidence that your business data is correct.
Adetiq combines the latest automation technologies with skilled resource to deliver a fully integrated mix of data validation services, tailored to the specific requirements of your business.
- Automated validation screening
- Rule based validation
- Telephone validation
- Data mining of other sources to validate data
- Research in both primary and secondary formats
- Data interrogation services
- Spot checks and ongoing data validation processes
Data Quality and Maintenance
Similarly, to Data Validation, Data Quality and Maintenance is associated with ensuring the long term accuracy and currency of your business data. Where Data Validation can validate that a snapshot of data is accurate at any given time, Data Quality and Maintenance processes, ensure the long term quality of your business data, which doesn't only look at the validity of existing data, the aim is to also ensure that the data is complete and comprehensive by populating missing information, researching supplementary, useful business data and the replacement of any expired data to ensure that the system or database is maintained to a high standard - maintaining a robust, comprehensive, clean and insightful data solution over the long term.
Adetiq provides complete data transformation, validation and maintenance services, for wide ranging requirements, often encompassing a variety of source documents and data sources, which need to be streamlined into a new format suitable for migration into new or existing systems. Using a combination of in-house technologies and your own Cloud based systems, Adetiq customises data transformation and migration solutions according to the specific and variable business requirements. Every data migration requirement is different, and therefore Adetiq will work with you to understand the specific business requirements and overarching aims, making recommendation with regard to best practice and suitable processes.
Data Security and Privacy
It is important to remember not to be complacent with your data. Your data provides your business with a competitive advantage and has intrinsic value to your competitors and unscrupulous individuals. Treat your data with the highest degree of security. Data and document security is at the heart of our business and as such we are PCI DSS compliant to the highest degree and ICO Data Protection Act Registered. This means that there are stringent controls in place to guarantee the security of your data and documents whilst they are with us. All of our business practices are audited by third parties annually to ensure that we can continue to provide you with the assurance of the highest level of data security for your business data.
