Sharing data is a two way process, your organisation consumes data from 3rd parties and you publish data out to your stakeholders. But how do you know the quality and governance of that data? Are you certain that your data is valid to specification and adheres to the Aeronautical Data Quality (ADQ) Regulation.
To truly achieve the interoperable data exchange objectives of System Wide Information Management (SWIM) more data that ever will be exchanged and updated by stakeholders with often varying operational capabilities. Whether loading or publishing, it is important each stakeholder understands and manages Aeronautical Data Quality, Data Audit and Data Integrity in accordance with ADQ regulations.
Aeronautical Data Quality
To ensure Aeronautical Data Quality both on data load and data publication we offer a Validation and Business Rule engine that can run stand alone or be orchestrated by an existing workflow, capable of validating AIXM data syntactically against its schema and also semantically against the AIXM Business Rules. This data quality ‘gatekeeper’ ensures that non-conformant data does not get into your system and that that your organisation does not publish data invalid to specification. Deployed either in front of GO Loader to ensure data quality of incoming data and after GO Publisher to ensure data quality of outgoing data, our Validation and Business Rule engine is fully configurable with support for the Business Rules developed by EUROCONTROL for AIXM as well as user defined rules via Schematron.
To attach the Governance and Traceability, and ensure Data Audit our GO Publisher product enables you to add the ISO 19115 metadata at both the feature and dataset level. Enabling you to encode and transfer information such as the data originator, amendment summary, persons interacting with the data, details or validation performed, effective start date and time of the data, geospatial metadata and limitations of use. Understanding where data originated from and the quality of that sata is paramount to making operational decisions for both the data consumer and receiver.
To ensure Data Integrity our products make extensive use of checksums, encryption, compression and certificates to ensure that data has not been tampered with or corrupted during data transfer.
Together, our software products provide you with a complete solution to embrace and share the benefits of future ATM and SWIM in your business and with your stakeholders. Importantly our solutions enable you to do this on top of your existing infrastructure so no big bang implementation and no major infrastructure changes or disruptions to existing systems. We appreciate that you also have standards to adhere to: security standards, database standards, application server standards, etc. Our solution doesn’t dictate any of these.
