ChainSys Approach

ChainSys Smart Data Platform leverages pre-built object-level extract and load adaptors for PTC Windchill PLM and other popular PLM systems, to accelerate your extraction, mapping, transformation, and loading.

ChainSys Smart Data Platform rapidly extracts master, reference, and transactional data to assess and profile it, then configurable business rules are applied to match, merge, cleanse and enrich each data object as part of its data flow. Each data flow is then orchestrated to execute sequentially or in parallel, as required by the target system. Source data objects are loaded into the ChainSys data mart for pre-validation, transformation, corrections, before final loading into the target. End-to-end orchestrated data migrations (test cycles) are typically performed 3 to 5 times, prior to production cutover. With an increased number of test cycles and the first test cycle happening as early as one month into the data migration effort, the data quality improves significantly from one test cycle to the next. Full end-to-end data reconciliation of all data sources to all targets is performed with each iteration.
