Data Production

  • Schema creation and management—Create data repositories with automated tools and defence data model templates that support numerous data model specifications and model versions.
  • Legacy data loading and migration—Use automated tools and templates for common data migrations to support the planning, testing, and execution of data loading operations into and between various data model specifications.
  • Feature extraction—Leverage specification-driven geometry and attribution tools to implement in-process quality assurance in the production environment and reject the creation of noncompliant data.
  • Cartographic finishing and product generation—Produce defence-specific map and data products quickly through a suite of database-driven production and cartographic finishing tools.

Data Management

  • Streamlined data replication—Automatically synchronize changes between sites, teams, or external data partners and cooperators using replication tools.
  • Data quality and compliance testing—Assess the quality and fitness of data products using both commercial off-the-shelf and integrated government off-the-shelf quality control tools to ensure compliance with published data model specifications.

Workflow Management

  • Workflow and resource management—Automate workflows, conduct resource levelling, and track work execution to improve efficiencies and ensure repeatability of data management activities.
  • Integration of tasks—Capture, distribute, and automate best practices and procedures among data production staff to enhance efficiency and quality across the organization.
