Complete, consistent, and comprehensive data is critical to efficient and effective organizational management. EN Data Solutions has the expertise needed to offer a wide range of services to support the management of your data. From data conversion to data migration, data cleansing, and data updates, we support all your data improvement initiatives. Our team has extensive experience with utilities and works with data in various systems, inside and outside of GIS. We work with clients to learn their systems and data standards and provide quality support throughout the process of updating records. We provide you with top-quality deliverables quickly and efficiently, ensuring that you have the data required to support operations and planning.
Consistent, accurate, and up-to-date information is critical to support key business decisions. At the core of every enterprise information system should be a data-driven model with quality standards that guarantee the data your organization relies upon is fit for use for every aspect of your business.
We are proud to hold an ISO 9001 certification with The International Organization of Standardization. Our quality management system is a client-focused set of standards that are adaptive to the QA/QC demands of any project. Our team of experts includes database managers, GIS analysts, software developers, gas and electric utility engineers, and non-gas pipeline engineers, whose industry knowledge is essential for designing a data quality management program that performs effectively from the start.
Our data management professionals have the essential resources to accurately execute the quality control plan, such as programmatic automation, robust checklists, and performance analysis tools. Whether you are looking for a data quality program embedded into an ENTRUST project or seeking a trusted independent quality review for data work being done by another vendor, the EN Data Solutions team has the technical expertise to ensure your data meets your standards.
Companies are transitioning from paper to digital documents, as Cloud architecture can be an important addition to your current on-premises deployment, and in some cases may be able to completely replace some systems. Paper documents have limited access and introduce inefficiency and errors into an organization’s work processes. EN Data Solutions experts provide support digitization and integration of historic and current paper documents into a client’s data system. As part of this support, we conduct a detailed inventory of the available records and estimate the cost of digitizing these documents and the impact on operations.
When the cost of digitizing the documents is justified by the value gained, we develop a plan to digitize the relevant documents. Depending upon the requirements, digitizing the documents can be performed by scanning them into a digital format, tagging them with relevant information, and linking them to the appropriate assets. If the requirements demand a higher level of integration, the source documents can be manually reentered as digital data. Both processes allow our clients to query, search, run reports, or otherwise use the data to better support their operations.
Reliable and accurate data is essential to decision-making, driving analysis, and is the foundation of effective enterprise management. Our expert consultants have years of experience working within data systems to standardize the datasets and cleanse them of errors, duplication, or other discrepancies. When engaging in these initiatives, we identify and quantify the errors and then evaluate the potential cause and the severity of each error.
After locating these gaps in quality, we evaluate the costs and impact of various correction techniques from lower cost/lower accuracy automated algorithms to higher cost/higher accuracy manual fixes. The desired accuracy and cost of the corrections drive the development of an overall data enhancement plan prioritizing data cleansing. EN Data Solutions then supports the execution of the data enhancement programs by managing activities, performing corrections, reviewing the enhanced data, and reporting outcomes, which allow further refinement of the data quality.
Organizations make significant investments in the data required to effectively manage their business. For these investments to return the benefits expected over time, the data must be kept up to date. The long-term maintenance of data ensures that your organization continues to accrue benefits from your initial investments. Our team of data professionals is equipped to provide ongoing data maintenance services for your organization through the implementation of our ISO-certified processes. Outsourcing these tasks frees your internal teams to focus on higher value-added activities, will reduce your overall costs, and allows for additional flexibility in team sizing to manage seasonal peak workloads.
One of the key requirements to obtaining high value from modern decision support and analytics applications is high-quality data. While starting with high-quality data is one factor in this value chain, safeguarding and maintaining data quality through established processes is equally important. If the processes involved in making changes introduce errors or allow data to become stale, high-quality data quickly deteriorates. Our team of experts assists our clients by developing workflows and processes that ensure that data quality is maintained promptly.
Our team draws knowledge from industry experts, providing insight into best practices when developing the data standards necessary for maintaining consistency within the system. As data standards are established or changed, our team helps to create methods for communicating changes to impacted stakeholders. This process-oriented work supports our other data management services and assists our clients in maintaining high-quality data for use in analytics applications and asset management systems.
EN Data Solutions also builds tracking and reporting mechanisms that measure the program’s success so clients can adjust and tailor their efforts to the ongoing program’s effectiveness. By monitoring the program, our clients can ensure that data enhancement programs continue to deliver value.
