The French software vendor ISoft and U.K.-based Avellino Technologies, both providers of data integration solutions, have formed a reseller partnership. Under the agreement, ISoft will reinforce Amadea, its real-time data integration platform with Avellino Discovery, an automated data profiling and analysis software solution.

The complementary solutions will enable ISoft customers to use Avellino Discovery to automate the process of discovering the true nature of their data so that issues within it may be recognized and resolved prior to undertaking integration projects using Amadea. The success of data integration projects and the return on investment from the ERP, CRM, data warehousing and business intelligence initiatives that often necessitate integration, are highly dependent upon the quality and fitness for purpose of source data. Since Discovery enables quality issues to be identified and fitness to be judged, this partnership is expected to offer significant benefits to ISoft customers.

While some businesses might choose to attempt a manual investigation of their data in order to judge its quality prior to integration, such analysis is tedious, time consuming and expensive in manpower. Often based on guesswork and assumptions, manual investigations of large data sources are typically flawed, sometimes resulting in severe problems later on.

Avellino Discovery automatically discovers the truth about the data in less than 10 percent of the time taken by manual processes. It enables users to quickly, easily and accurately judge the level of risk posed by the source data. It reports the true content, structure, relationships, and quality of data sources with 100 percent accuracy as well as enabling drill down to the actual data. Since findings are displayed using easy to follow diagrams and clear statistics, objective business cases for data quality improvement projects can easily be built if required.
