A customised iBase database can be built to suit your requirements, including customised picklists, icons and associated Analyst's Notebook template(s).

 

Designs can be based on current data sets used by the analyst / investigator, including forms, reports and queries. Designs can also be based on data sets from external data sources / database extracts.

Build customised iBase intelligence solution to suit the client's requirements.

  1. Consultation meetings to obtain sample data and end user requirements.

  2. Provide client with a database design model based on consolidated information.

  3. Create database offsite based on database design model.

  4. Provide client with iBase database template and customised icons and Analyst's Notebook template.

  5. If requested, implement database in situ in collaboration with client's IT providers.

iBase Import Specifications

Build import specifications either in situ or offsite (requires iBase database template and sample data).

iBridge Consultations

iBridge configurations can be created with an associative and / or temporal theme to allow the end user analyst / investigator to interrogate any database visually through Analyst's Notebook. The configuration includes an associated Analyst's Notebook template and customised icons to suit your requirements.

Build customised iBridge intelligence solution to suit the client's requirements.

  1. Consultation meetings to obtain sample data and end user requirements.

  2. Provide client with a database design model based on consolidated information.

  3. Provide client with list of views that may be required to assist the configuration.

  4. Create iBridge Configuration either offsite or onsite based on database design model.

Data Cleansing Services

 

IBM i2 iBase can be used to de-duplicate the data and thereby assist in identifying commonality or networking / syndicate relationships.

Use iBase to cleanse data, such as:

  • Standardise Telephone Numbers to 10-digit Australian number.

  • Standardise names of people and organisations to remove additional characters such as spaces, decimals, commas, hyphens, brackets, etc..
  • Standardise Bank Accounts, ensuring the 6-digit BSB/Routing Number and the full Account Number does not include additional characters such as spaces, decimals, commas, hyphens, brackets, etc..
  • Standardise Email Addresses, ensuring that they all contain @ and . in the address.
  • Standardise Vehicle Licence Place/Registration Numbers to remove additional characters such as spaces, decimals, commas, hyphens, brackets, etc..
  • Standardise Street Addresses where possible.

Note: Addresses will either be expanded to the full street name (Road, Street) OR abbreviated (Rd, St). Because of the amount of variation on writing an address, this can only be guaranteed to a 70% quality standardisation if the raw data relies on free text on data capture.

This is charged on a day rate.
