Data extraction and mapping

Gain control and consistency over your data

Data extraction and mapping

Corporate data grows enormously each year, making it a challenging task for organisations to keep track of and collect every data point available. Manual efforts of extracting and mapping data take up vast amounts of time, resources and effort in getting the data needed for further analysis or processing.

Our data extraction and mapping product solves these challenges by automating the extraction and mapping process, giving organisations more control and consistency over their data extraction tools.

Here is how our data extraction and mapping product works

Source systems integration - ERP systems and unstructured data

Our data connection platform allows organisations to connect to common ERP systems and unstructured data (i.e documents) using our data connectors to gain secure access to source data either via direct to a system or cloud-based integrations.

Data Mapping

We then use our Data Mapping Templates to transform the data into our target Common Data Model, such as our Audit Common Data Model structure.

Data pipelines

Data pipelines process both structured and unstructured sources, such as documents, spreadsheets, text, logs etc., to find relationships between them using Machine Learning techniques. We then combine these into a Common Data Model.

The Common Data Model, such as our Audit Common Data Model, is then used in our Audit Tools using Knowledge Graphs to aid an auditor in the process of performing an audit.

Common Data Model data connectors for external access

Access to the data in our Common Data Model is then available via connectors to enable external systems or analytics solutions (that support the Microsoft Common Data Model) to plugin directly as required to Power BI or Power Apps for example.

Data Governance

Within the data processing flows we provide data lineage/governance of the lifecycle such that the data can be traced from source to target with any inconsistencies flagged and reported.

Benefits of our data extraction and mapping product

Data Governance

  • Data is stored in a common data format decoupled from the many source system(s) isolating the organisation from the underlying complexity of source data.
  • The organisation can access data consistently for analytics/systems integrations and use of our toolsets in a reliable way.
How Engine B's audit technology works

Working with Microsoft

Microsoft is working on an Open Data Initiative to create industry accelerators (open-source industry-specific Common Data Models), for pharmaceuticals, healthcare, professional services and more.

Engine B is the only organisation contributing to Microsoft’s data project for audit, making us an integral component to Microsoft’s vision for the digitisation of professional services. Collaborating with Microsoft also means that our audit CDM easily integrates with other Microsoft solutions such as Power BI and Power Apps.
