Akinnovate launches Data Quality Solution

Reston, VA, November 1, 2017 – Akinnovate, the Reston based consultancy and software solutions company, today announced the launch of the Akinnovate Data Quality Solution (DQS).

Big Data, Business Intelligence and Analytics are all high-profile technologies offering businesses tremendous opportunities to increase the quality of decision making and to better understand market behavior and other avenues of value creation. Businesses also commonly pursue automation of business processes using approaches such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to improve operational efficiency. What all these efforts have in common is that success ultimately relies on the quality of the underlaying data.

Deficient data quality leads to questionable results from data initiatives and waste of resources. It also contributes to a lack of confidence in the results of analytics among the executive ranks and can impede the progress and success of such initiatives as well as present obstacles to automation of business processes. Akinnovate has extensive experience in assisting clients in this area, and through that work have determined that applying an automated approach to data quality management through software solutions developed for that purpose can significantly enhance the feasibility, sustainability and ultimately the value of such initiatives.

To that end, Akinnovate has partnered with data quality vendor Naveego to offer the market a solid automated solution for data quality assurance. The solution offers clients an efficient vehicle for ensuring the quality of data as a one-off exercise tied to specific events, such as the integration of an acquisition or a change-out of legacy system, and additionally continuous monitoring of the quality of data over time, with extensive trend reporting and approaches to rectify quality issues.

“We have a long history of helping clients tackle data quality issues in our engagements through both manual and automated approaches” said Erik Tarnvik, VP Data Management and Analytics at Akinnovate. “We are thrilled to now be able to offer not only our expertise in this area, but also a packaged software solution in DQS. This will enable us to faster fulfill our clients need for automated and sustainable quality capabilities. As a first step for clients, we offer a simple and fast data health checks to diagnose the need for more comprehensive efforts.”

The cloud servers are hosted in state-of-the-art data centers that meet the highest of security standards, utilizing encryption and secure communications.

“DQS cloud-based data quality platform detects problem data and delivers meaningful insights that help you track and eliminate data quality issues for good and provides a solid foundation for business intelligence and automation of business processes. The automation is a key characteristic of our approach. It allows our clients to not only address current data quality issues for the moment, but also ensures that quality is sustainable over time and therefore offers a significantly higher return on investment”, said Tarnvik.
