Align Your Disparate IT Systems Around A Common Enterprise Source of Truth.
Apex’s patented1 Unify!TM technology makes levels of interoperability possible that have consistently proved elusive, particularly in healthcare where semantics pose a major challenge to sharing data between systems. It is based on the idea of aligning systems with a distributed “single source of truth”, which first and foremost involves our method for constructing such a thing from known truth, and then ensuring change is managed in a consistent, straightforward way over time.
Unify! is not a single product but a combination of tools, techniques and methods starting with ForeverDBTM, an innovative information aggregation and brokerage system that makes it possible to control the propagation of information in the service of maintaining a distributed, domain-defined source of truth that transcends the limitations of the often disparate systems that typically are maintained in large organizations.
Next is SynchronicityTM, which provides an operational context for semantic alignment of those downstream disparate systems of record (SORs) as change occurs naturally in the course of day-to-day operations.
Apex BlockSyncTM provides the orderly transacting of domain events to ForeverDB that ensures the ability to reconstruct the flow of events faithfully in real time and on demand. The integrity of the data stored in ForeverDB’s “Eternal” storage is guaranteed by Apex BlockSync’s application of blockchain technology, regardless whether information is proprietary to the organization or part of a data sharing scheme with other organizations.
Finally, Team CollaborateTM rounds out the offering with portable workflow orchestrations that allow your team to see the big picture that eludes any one system of record.
|Use ForeverDB for a single source of truth and a continuous unidirectional flow of data through Eternal, Long-Term and Short-Term storage defined in the language of your domain.||Rapid iteration toward clarity about how the data from multiple sources can be integrated into a single “source of truth” that you can really use. Semantic alignment of your IT systems over time, in near real-time.|
|Use Apex BlockSync to ensure orderly transacting of domain-defined events in ForeverDB journals used to construct a single source of truth from multiple sources, and optionally to share those journals securely with other networked organizations.||Big Data and Interoperability Services as first-class layers in the enterprise architecture stack, managing change both internally and with external IT systems.|
|Use Synchronicity to align each of your disparate IT systems with the single source of truth in near real-time.||A single enterprise source of truth that is not constrained by the limitations of any of your legacy or current IT systems, in that it stores data even they cannot, and in the language of your domain.|
|Use Team Collaborate to provide flexible, portable workflow solutions that are not constrained by the limitations of any one of your several IT systems that constitute your enterprise.||Ideal for services organizations characterized by some concept of a team of service providers servicing a customer or client at some point of service during an encounter. So, Unify! is perfect for sectors as diverse as healthcare, finance and even retail industries.|
|Use Visual Scheme for ApplicationsTM for automation and Visual Clojure for ApplicationsTM for rapid development of semantic adapters and other components of a real-world implementation.||Can also be used more basically in mergers and acquisitions scenarios involving the often challenging process of ingesting acquired IT systems. Rapid iteration toward clarity about how the data from multiple sources can be integrated into a single, distributed “source of truth” that you can really use.|
