We offer a highly customizable full service data solution with tools that provide endless variations of data intelligence to clients on demand. The Commodity DataServer extracts information from numerous sources and formats, which it then parses and normalizes into a central store, complete with a real historical audit of data and corrections. With an innovative approach to processing, cleaning, and error monitoring, our system for managing data includes:
Collecting: Commodity DataServer captures, archives, analyzes, validates and delivers data from over 280 worldwide information sources which it accurately delivers to its clients in a timely manner.
Quality Assurance: Each time new data is exported to a client Commodity DataServer database it is dynamically scanned by a set of 600 characteristic-based data quality assurance filters for irregularities. When suspect values are located, a ticket is generated and assigned to a Morningstar data analyst for immediate review.
Monitoring: We keep constant watch over every client's database. Each time a client processes new data on a Commodity DataServer system a message is automatically sent to our headquarters, enabling our support team to diagnose problems before clients report them.
Response: We have an average open-to-close time of less than 2 hours for individual tickets.
