How It Works

Remove the Roadblocks to Application Modernization in 8 -12 weeks

Democratizing data access is essential to digital transformation. DataNovata automates the generation of an HTML5 data application unique to each database schema on a digital platform, for ease of access, retention and modernization of your Enterprise Information Systems.

DataNovata is a strategic tool to remodel application data into easy-to-configure application windows on any modern platform. DataNovata's Data Application Generator will quickly scan any relational database, create an xml blueprint and generate a web-enabled application wrapper so you can view, customize and manage your data on a digital platform, on any browser or device. Pre-relational database conversions are a core service offering for legacy estate.

DataNovata applications are easy to maintain. Once the application is up and running (typically within 8 -12 weeks) you can decommission the original database and application.

DataNovata applications support business users through continuous access to data, without reliance on IT services or legacy applications. DataNovata helps balance the cost of data modernization and digital access, to simplify transformation for your infrastructure and operations.


Migration Optimization (ERP)

As the pressure to transform increases, the ability to rationalize what is critical to the corporate dataverse creates a paradox - the more data you keep through the migration process, the longer the transformation takes. ERP migration represents the biggest upheaval IT Services face and the pressure to perform to budget and timeline makes for difficult decisions.

The ability to transpose large quantities of data into an easy-to-generate, easy-to-read application can lighten the load and accelerate the migration process.

Data Governance & Risk

'Right-to-privacy', 'freedom-of-access' and 'right-to-be-forgot' create a triangulation of risk for businesses with financial penalties imposed by governing legal bodies (e.g. GDPR). Aging systems are on less agile architecture to support secure, timely access to information. Emerging threats now target vulnerable legacy platforms.

A stable, digital portal from which to access and manage data from retired systems of record is necessary to mitigate risk when managing the information life-cycle across a broad enterprise application portfolio.

Digital Transformation

As the leading-edge of your innovation pushes the envelope towards digital IT, the trailing edge needs to follow your trajectory.

Shepherding your non-production systems into your transformation strategy can seem onerous with no obvious return on investment, yet ignoring them is counter-productive to your entire transformation strategy and bloats the cost of managing your entire estate. An automated solution is your optimal medium of exchange.

Cloud Migration

For enterprises that see cloud migration as a critical part of their I&O strategy, data assets that lack digital currency are a nuisance. Leaving legacy estate on-premise or in the hands of outsourced managed services is best described as obstacle-avoidance.

Automating the process of updating data access to digital platform allows the organization to fully realize its cloud platform strategy and focus on the business that it does best.

Application Decommissioning

The planned retirement of aging systems of record can be held up by the requirement to provide line-of-business users with immediate access to historical data. Cost of maintenance and support of aging data can increase beyond the predicted application life-cycle eroding budgets allocated to innovation.

As enterprises set their sights on IT transformation, lack of an automated solution to re-platform data records into a digital-platform application increases their Technical Debt and transition of skills.

Application Portfolio Rationalization

Over time, organizations accumulate applications that perform overlapping functions.

Consolidating business processes to the application of choice is complicated by the issue of having to move data from multiple applications and sort through: which data is the most relevant; controlling duplication; managing life-cycle; and maintaining user trust through the transition.

Accessible Archiving

Establishing a policy when to archive data-at-rest requires balancing the operational cost of maintaining the online service vs. the likelihood of user's requiring IT Support to provide access as and when required to support the business user's process. Finding the middle ground that releases data from IT operational considerations and still provides full access to the business user on digital platform is the ideal mode of operation.

Data Modernization

Modernization of data requires an analytical approach: Where is the data? What is the content? What is the quality? What is the value? Where do we want this data to go? Can we improve the value of this data?

A uniform, data-centric solution that allows businesses to answer these questions quickly and builds a data-driven business  ready to leverage its assets for maximum opportunity.
