Unlock your data to empower IT transformation.

Our Mission

The speed of your transformation can be accelerated by a small change in an unlikely place - the data sitting at rest inside application silos. Inactive, yet important, they make heavy lifting on your modernization roadmap.

DataNovata unlocks this data from the application with impressive speed and zero disruption to the business process to achieve digital-platform data retention as you emerge from your legacy platform.

Our History

DataNovata is grounded in a history of innovation.

Founder and CEO of DataNovata, Howard Sherrington, formed the independent software developer, NSC in the early ‘70s, to program mainframe business solutions for Top 500 companies. The company received awards and recognition for its success in application design and technological achievement.

In the early ‘80s, NSC engineered a platform-agnostic software development workbench to generate applications for different operating systems from a common source.

In the '90s, processor power evolved into smaller hardware footprints, so NSC reverse-engineered its workbench into a multiplatform refactoring solution for application migration.

As IT modernization became data-heavy, NSC built an application-generator to view data within any database, which was rebranded as DataNovata.

In 2015, an NSC shell company was incorporated as DataNovation Ltd. to manage and market the feature-rich solution to large enterprise.

Today, DataNovata remains a one-of-a-kind solution, successfully implemented by F500 corporations on a global scale.
