Apex Unify!™



Align Your Disparate IT Systems Around A Common Enterprise Source of Truth.

Apex Unify! makes levels of interoperability possible that have consistently proved elusive, particularly in healthcare where semantics pose a major challenge to sharing data between systems.

Apex Unify! is based on the idea of aligning systems with a single source of truth, which first and foremost involves our patent-pending 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 Apex ForeverDB, an innovative information brokerage system that makes it possible to control the flow of information in the service of maintaining a domain-defined source of truth that transcends the limitations of the often disparate systems that typically are maintained in large organizations.

Next is Synchronicity, which provides an operational context for semantic alignment of those disparate systems as change occurs naturally in the course of day-to-day operations.

BlockSync 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 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 Collaborate rounds out the offering with portable workflow orchestrations that allow your team to see the big picture that eludes any one system of record.

Features

  • Use Apex 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.
  • 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.
  • Use Apex Synchronicity™ to align each of your disparate IT systems with the single source of truth in near real-time.
  • Use Apex 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.
  • Use Low-level SDKs powered by Apex Perseus, Athena, Muse, Helios and Odyssey for rapid development of semantic adapters and other components of a real-world implementation.

Benefits

  • 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.
  • Big Data and Interoperability Services as first-class layers in the enterprise architecture stack, managing change both internally and with external IT systems.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 “source of truth” that you can really use.

The Apex Advantage

Apex Olympos™

Apex OlymposTM – our platform for rapid, agile development in a microservices-oriented world – brings your data systems and legacy applications into the 21st century by modernizing your architecture to current enterprise standards.

  • Transform client-server systems into n-tier distributed systems with maximum re-use of existing code and business logic quickly with proven tools, techniques and methods for legacy application modernization.
  • Lay the correct foundation for more advanced data sharing and collaboration with Olympos, then layer Apex DomainMaster or Apex Unify! on top for an approach to interoperability that is both robust and reliable.

Apex DomainMaster™

Apex DomainMaster™ brings the power of linked data and blockchain together on the desktop with a compelling new commercial database management system designed for the 21st century. With DomainMaster, it’s never been easier to collaborate or keep your disparate “data silos” in sync. Essentially “Unify! in a box,” Apex DomainMaster brings unparalleled productivity to the development of “semantic web” applications to the masses, even leveraging existing investments in traditional desktop SQL databases like MS Access.

  • Streamlined, iterative and exploratory development of domain concepts with intelligent data import/export capabilities well beyond traditional ETL approaches.
  • Create a single source of truth and align your system of record against it when new information is added to the system—even if the origin of the new information was externally generated!
  • Know that your data is always secure, always local, and impossible to corrupt or otherwise leak information.
  • Includes Apex Olympos.

Ready to go “Enterprise”?

Apex Unify!™ Platform

Apex Unify!™ is a full-stack distributed platform for semantic interoperability that is designed to overcome traditional technical and political barriers to data sharing in highly regulated, services-based industries like healthcare and finance. It can be used by large government and commercial enterprises to share patient or client data or by companies growing by acquisition to quickly bring disparate internal IT systems into corporate alignment.

  • Apex BlockSync™ with Apex ForeverDB™ provides secure, decentralized sharing of semantically rich, arbitrarily complex data across organizational and even domain boundaries.
  • Apex Synchronicity™ provides unparalleled processing power for semantic alignment of disparate IT systems.
  • Over time, existing systems can be enhanced, deprecated or replaced without fear of information loss, ever.
  • Includes Apex Olympos.

Unify! and DomainMaster both use or embed our game-changing technologies:


Apex ForeverDB™


Apex ForeverDB™ brings several innovations to the problem of global information management. It supports three high-level categories of data: “Eternal” storage (hence the name ForeverDB), “Long-term” storage, and “Short-term” storage. It also provides a granular model of truth over time in a world of multiple conflicting sources of truth and a novel concept of identity mapping that is uniquely suited to the problem of reconciling disparate data both internally and externally to the organization. With ForeverDB™, information loss is simply never a problem. 

Apex BlockSync™


Apex BlockSync™ is a blockchain-powered, optionally distributed transactor of novelty in a given domain designed to make sharing semantically rich information across systems and organizational boundaries part of the architectural “woodwork,” not yet another API-driven exchange of information. BlockSync tackles the complexity of data interoperability while preserving organizational autonomy with respect to critical business logic and choice of back-end technology stack. No participant is forced to use the same database software, just the same source of truth.

Apex Synchronicity™


Apex Synchronicity™ is the technology by which information held in “Long-term” and “Short-term” storage in ForeverDB is synchronized across multiple internal systems of record. It provides internal data federation as well as a coherent methodology for identifying discrepancies across local systems and updating them as these discrepancies are resolved. With Synchronicity’s lightweight design, no system of record is conscious of participating in federation at all. Legacy systems of record can be replaced without fear of losing information, ever. 

Apex Team Collaborate™


Apex Team Collaborate™ simplifies data reconciliation and truth propagation by empowering your teams to vet new information as it enters the system, especially when errors or discrepancies are detected, forcing human intervention and workflow. With Team Collaborate, every reconciliation session is an opportunity to improve both efficiency and usability, providing analytics that will ensure continual process improvement—not to mention happier users—over time. Team Collaborate’s front-end, Apex DocuMentor™, ensures critical, timely documentation of each resolution.
