In today’s business world, data management has shifted emphasis from the tactics of storage optimization to the strategy of (data) logistics. Accordingly, Daman emphasizes solutions that manage data “flow” as much as those that emphasize “storage”. The objective is to collect, integrate and transform data in order to deliver it as efficiently as possible to where it is needed now – all the while managing its quality to ensure that the delivered end product is trustworthy, consistent and complete.
In line with these objectives, Daman offers a comprehensive enterprise integration practice that addresses all aspects of data movement, including:
- Efficient data extraction or acquisition.
- Intelligent data profiling to understand its content.
- Consistent and reliable data cleansing and life-cycle, quality management.
- Scalable data transformation.
- On-demand data delivery.
- Ongoing data replication and synchronization.
With Daman, organizations can minimize the pain, disruptions and unexpected costs of large-scale integrations – all while streamlining the data movement process, increasing productivity and developing a strategic yet highly adaptive architecture for future growth.
An end-to-end methodology for data integration
The Daman data integration methodology is based on a wealth of experience across industries and data integration contexts and patterns. It is a complete end-to-end methodology that addresses all components of the initiative, including initial assessments … planning … solution design … development … deployment … ongoing support … and maintenance.
Our methodology incorporates the very best principles of application development — incremental, iterative, yet deliverable-driven. To give just one example, we use “time-boxing” which helps to manage scope creep, one of the most challenging problems in such projects.
Agile solutions designed for development efficiency and flexibility
Daman leverages what we call a Standard Architecture, incorporating proven design principles that maximize the use of repeatable procedures and processes and of reusable components. With this approach, our solutions can:
- Maximize re-use of code components.
- Leverage component-based development to greatly simplify and economize maintenance tasks or manage other changes to requirements.
- Facilitate development speed in subsequent releases.
- Reduce the expertise level of resources needed in subsequent releases.
Service oriented architectures
With our patented Business Rules Management System™ (BRMS™), Daman has been delivering solutions based on service oriented architectures long before SOA was popular or widely used. BRMS ensures a consistent representation of business or integration rules, helping to facilitate change, promote reuse, minimize redundancy and support scalability for enterprise integration.
Using BRMS or other commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies, Daman can enable real-time, integrated access to business information regardless of location or format by providing a broad set of information integration capabilities to semantically align information across disparate sources.
The right tool for the right project
Our team of professionals is highly trained in a wide variety of integration tools spanning the integration context ― from data profiling, quality and extract-transform-load (ETL) tools to innovative technologies in the areas of web services, enterprise service bus (ESB), messaging and natural language processing (NLP). This means we have greater options in choosing the tool best suited for the unique needs of any given project. We can also advise our clients in selecting third-party tools, helping to maximize their investment and accelerate the integration process.
