Actively managing data quality
Housing Data Enterprise is a highly configurable enterprise scale data management solution for Social Housing. It integrates with any combination of housing systems from which it consumes data and presents it as a single source of prepared, cleansed and structured unified data, allowing organisations to improve data quality.
Housing Data Enterprise is built and maintained using the Data Academy Data Operating System. The end-to-end process of consuming data from source systems and presenting it in the Unified Data layer (UDL) is totally automated. This process deals with thousands of data types consisting of billions of individual data items, and is key for managing data quality effectively.
Social housing organisations can use this prepared and certified data in ways that are highly relevant and provide valuable and insightful information, as well as to systems that process data for ongoing use. These provide a wide range of functionality and range from:
Structured data sets
Performance management applications
Data handling applications
Statutory and non-statutory return data submission modules
All of this capability provided by Housing Data Enterprise is not able to be delivered effectively by the housing systems, and Housing Data Enterprise is an essential complementary solution platform that co-exists alongside the main operational systems.
With the capability to configure to exacting requirements and specific nuances, expandable and customisable to meet all structured data processing requirements and operating in a totally automated mode, it is able to provide massive improvements in data quality and data processing.
The Jail-IT module will quarantine any data items that have failed to pass either the technical or business rules that have been configured and through the Quality module this performance can be visualised allowing active management of the data quality in the source systems. Ultimately it is better to fix the data rather than fix the reports.
This improves efficiency, provides regulatory conformance, reduces costs and provides outputs and information that housing staff can act on to improve the organisation’s performance and provide for better tenant services at lower costs.
