How DataHub works

Bespoke design and implementation.

We work with you to design and tailor the DataHub service to suit your exact requirements. Our proven process and software can be adapted to integrate exactly the data you need in a format that suits you.

Secure, web-based transmission.

Data is transmitted over the internet from the dealership to our data centre. It is then processed according to your requirements and securely transmitted to you or your suppliers.

Minimal risk.

DataHub has our proprietary Transformation Manager software at its core. Transformation Manager has been proven in hundreds of complex data integration projects worldwide. And our robust methodology ensures accurate data is delivered on time, every time.

Responsive management and support.

DataHub not only leverages our proven software, but also our consultants’ extensive automotive experience. We manage DataHub on a daily basis to agreed service levels, with a named automotive expert as your first point of contact.

“ETL Solutions are an essential component in our overall offer and bring an industry-leading technology platform that allows SBS to focus on our business improvement goals without worrying about the mechanics of getting the data.”

Proven software and methodology

DataHub uses our Transformation Manager data movement software and proprietary methodology.

Transformation Manager is a software toolkit used by our consultants to manage our clients’ data integration and migration projects. Flexible, extensible and with a proven track record in data management, Transformation Manager enables our consultants to connect, transform and integrate data from any source to any target system.

Our Engagement Model is used by our consultants to define a process for each client’s data integration. Using the Model ensures a successful outcome because it is based on our experiences and best practice for evaluating, implementing and using data integration solutions. There are four important stages to the model: Analyse, Design, Implement and Maintain. Find out more here.
