This paper seeks to provide insight into how AnalytiX Data Services can address many of the data related issues that come with combining disparate source data as is often the case in mergers and acquisitions. It will cover some of the best features and functionality offered by AnalytiX Data Services’ flagship product AnalytiX Mapping Manager, which have specific capabilities that are of high value in this scenario.

Many companies handle this data ingestion process, whether during post-acquisition, or during the scoping phase, as a prototype that ultimately guides them into an overall integration strategy. These traditional means and measures can become very expensive when you consider the time to analyze the new source data, metadata, and work through the process to map it to the existing repository or repositories. Standardizing a multitude of source systems, managing an army of business analysts, data analysts, and development staff can become overwhelming for a data- centric certified project manager.

One can only imagine the anxiety to be suffered by a project manager that is not well versed in the system development life-cycle, or has not a clue about what it means to integrate, standardize, and govern data. Specialties aside, tools can make all the difference in the world when it comes to taking on new pursuits. For example, even if one had never mowed a lawn in their lifetime, a well-crafted mower that is easy to start, and intuitive to use would put you miles ahead of the capabilities offered by a push-mower. In a vast majority of businesses, all of the intricacies of managing data integration begin with a manually created spreadsheet – which is similar to a push mower when compared to the features and functionality that a best-in-breed, if not one-of-a-kind mapping management solution can offer.
