Nishkarsh Products and Training

“It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data” – Arthur Conan Doyle

The number one challenge faced by businesses today is not being able to discover and consume their own data in a timely manner. Organizations need on-demand capabilities to unlock and distribute their data. To provide access to data and make it available for consumption in a self-service manner, organizations are looking to build data assets catalogs and facilitate data lineage, context, and dictionaries around their data. Unlock your data with our Nishkarsh products and training for a richer data analytics and decision making experience.

Product: Nishkarsh EIM v1.0

The Nishkarsh Enterprise Information Management (EIM) tool offers a simple GUI driven interface to its customers which aids in classifying and managing their data assets and facilitates the building of enterprise data assets catalogs. The tool focuses on creating a standards-based hierarchical classification for your metadata, which then allows you to create a line of sight into your data assets. This lineage can subsequently be leveraged through our tool to facilitate self-service and easily select sections of your data that are needed for decision making. Additionally, the tool has features to import/export your current classification, mapping, and data assets and to generate impact reports. 

     Classification

Create a customized hierarchical classification for your data. With the ability to organize your data into subject areas and link across them, you can establish a line of sight that helps you find the right data at the right time. 

      Mapping

Connect your data assets to your established classification to take full advantage of the line of sight you have prepared. 

      Self-service

The ability to get insights into your connected data assets means that you can create the dataset that you require to achieve your mission smoothly.

      National Information Exchange Model

Organize your data with mappings to established data models to simplify information exchange. Generate reports and information exchange package documents (IEPD) that help others understand your data.
