Data Services

If world-class Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) and Integrated Workplace Management (IWMS) programs are a journey, then data is the fuel that gets you there.
It is impossible to expect your enterprise systems and processes to provide you with the value you expect if you are not fueling those systems with complete, accurate, and properly structured data. EDI understands not only the importance of quality data management and analytics, but also what comprises quality data, how to capture it, how to structure it, and how to maintain it.
Whether you’ve been using your enterprise system and processes for decades or are starting from scratch, EDI can help. We will work with you to define your data standards and collection processes, tools, and integrations to ensure you get the most out of your programs with the lowest possible effort and cost.
Our approach includes capitalizing on new technologies for data and refinement, including integration with Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Building Information Modeling Systems (BIM), and our own data collection processes, data cleaning, and data integration tools.

EDI Brings Clarity to Complex Data

  • Data Standards Acquiring quality data for your systems begins with an intent to capture complete, accurate, and properly structured data regardless of the source. EDI has helped numerous clients define this intent by way of Data Standards and related Standard Operating Procedures. Organizations can then use this intent internally and as an attachment to capital projects to ensure that the system constantly receives quality data.EDI streamlines this effort with pre-defined templates for these standards and SOPs that span all industries, facilities, and asset types. Don’t start from scratch on an empty whiteboard. Capitalize on the heavy lifting we’ve already done for the last 20 years!
  • Data Collection EDI can help you get a handle on your current data gaps by providing support for your own or contractor-led data collection or by actually walking down data for you. Our business and customer data management solutions employ our well-defined approach in completing physical walk-downs and asset data collection processes developed from extensive experience at all kinds of facilities, from biotech laboratories to power generation plants and airports.Don’t fret as you stare at a mountain of uncollected or unstructured data; let us help you climb that mountain! EDI has developed a highly efficient, repeatable process with supporting tools for labeling assets, collecting data, seamlessly loading data into your enterprise system, and meeting all defined data standards. These processes can be utilized in any phase of the facility life-cycle and integrate with available data sources.
  • Data Migration and Integration In many cases, the appropriate data source for your EAM or IWMS system is an already existing data source (like a BIM model) or an existing cloud data management system (like a GIS system, ERP system, or legacy CMMS). EDI has worked extensively with multiple data file formats and data management platforms and can help you identify the appropriate data sources, map the right migration or integration paths, and implement the technical solutions to make those migrations and integrations as efficient as possible.In particular, EDI, in partnership with parent company Arora Engineers’ Geospatial group, has done extensive and innovative work in integrating BIM models and GIS systems to both seed and maintain asset repositories in Maximo and TRIRIGA. Whether you are handling an influx of assets from new capital projects or just trying to recover and cleanse data from an existing legacy system, let EDI show you the most efficient way to perform the migration and integrate the data sources.
