Integrated Data Solutions Home Centralisation of Data

In order to create an integrated data solution for your organisation that is robust and has intelligent connections it is paramount that data needs to be centralised but not necessarily in a physical nature. Data does not need to be in the same physical location in order to be deemed central - it simply needs to be connected and accessible in some manner.

Just as it is important to know the organisations process hierarchy it is equally as important to know the location, structure and type of data that represents the records that activity in the process produces. From this perspective it should be possible to chain all data together following the process hierarchy which has numerous advantages including:

  • knowing the process location of correlation studies
  • enabling cause and effect testing to be developed
  • enabling Hoshin reporting structures to be set up
  • enabling change management actions prior to adverse occurrence
  • setting up change management for positive results
  • ensuring resources are in alignment with critical and significant organisational characteristics
  • determining the true value of each metric

By knowing the process hierarchy and the data attached to them an intelligent view of the data structure can be established. It is not necessary to reinvent the data wheel for each application that collects and analyses data but to ensure each data collection point is known in terms of:
  • location
  • structure
  • data types
  • reporting
Some development may be required to tie all the critical and significant data points together but a total rewrite is not always necessary. Data mining is key to knowing where all the data collection points are and how they can be used.

Integrated Data Solutions Home Conversion of Orphaned Databases into one system

When we first start a business, it's common to do things on a shoestring. We start out with cheap office furniture in a shared office space, fitted out with secondhand or low-grade equipment. In fact, to build a successful business we usually do anything we can to get things moving, building the momentum that drives us towards success, even though money is tight. The same applies to the software that we use. It's common to see new companies (and some mature and older companies) using systems and processes based on components such as Excel spreadsheets, Access databases, text files, and lots of manual processes with little or no automation and integration, limited redundancy and, usually, no backup.

As we grow our business, build cashflow and revenue, and achieve the success we've worked hard for, some things change. We might get a nicer office in a better part of town, a custom workshop, and dedicated, fit-for-purpose equipment. However, often one of the things we continue to use is that first iteration of "our system", that unique set of software and manual processes that lets us get the job done. Maybe there's a custom database or some macro's that Karen's son wrote for us. But hey, it works, right?

At Quality One, we've lost count of how many times we've seen organizations that have millions of dollars of infrastructure, managed by manual processes and data stored in Excel spreadsheets, with no proper back up and little if any integration or automation. It's almost that there's a feeling that says, if the software does what we need it to do, no matter how many manual processes or manipulations we have to do to get it there, we put up with it.

We're working to change that. At Quality One, we want to show businesses how custom, fit for purpose software improves organizational robustness and reliability, provides the ability to quickly build improvements for processes, facilitates integration between disparate components, and supports expansion across multiple sites, whether nationally or internationally and moves the organisation toward Industry 4.0 and Quality 4.0.

Some advantages we often talk about for custom software include:

  • Custom workflows that conform to how you work.
  • Seamless integration and operation between components. Interrogation of data across applications, documents and tools for root cause analysis and change management
  • Round-the-clock reliability and accessibility - store your system in the cloud for global access, or host it on your own systems for security and speed.
  • The ability to grow with you - enhancements, modifications and new features over time.
  • Multi-device support - need that spreadsheet on your iPad - no problem!
  • Security models that suit your business needs and the levels of data access you want to provide.
  • Data storage tailored to keep your data not only secure, but reliable, with the auditing, change management and compliance features that your industry requires.
  • Backup and disaster recovery, to allow you to recover if the worst happens.

Integrated Data Solutions Home Big Data for Small Business

Wikipedia states Big data challenges to include capturing data, data storage, data analysis, search, sharing, transfer, visualization, querying, updating, information privacy and data source. Big data was originally associated with three key concepts: volume, variety, and velocity. When we handle big data, we may not sample but simply observe and track what happens. Therefore, big data often includes data with sizes that exceed the capacity of traditional software to process within an acceptable time and value.

Don’t think your business is big enough for Big data? What are the future plans for the smaller enterprise? At Quality One we believe all business is in the business of growing and as such need to plan for big data requirements as the business grows.

Big Data

This can be a daunting proposition. If you looking for help in planning and approaching the Big data question to help your smaller enterprise grow and deliver Industry 4.0 and Quality 4.0 requirements and measure and analyse what is important to the organisation and its growth please Contact Quality One

At Quality One we believe this is paramount for organisations heading into an age of Big data, Industry 4.0, Quality 4.0 and intelligent management systems. In response to this challenge Quality One is developing iProgent™ EIMS system based on Organisational Robustness Analysis.
