Match™ Data Processor


Why data processing needs
a paradigm shift?

Mastering data complexity is critical to the digital transformation of today’s business. To attain peak performance, organizations need to transform and exchange data across applications and humans. Because data transformations are inherently complex, well-defined knowledge and data models are essential for success.

From technology focus

Due to limited definitional capabilities of data formalisms, data often does not reflect reality. It is no exception that record-based information models, the current industry standard, do not correspond with reality. In data processing this gives rise to numerous data integrity violations and re-work. As data is a valuable company asset, this implementation approach has a negative impact on the cost-income ratio. Designing a model requires getting away from the technology focus and forward engineer back to reality. Only after a thorough understanding of reality, attention can and should be shifted to the lower-level data structures of data formalisms.

To understanding reality first

Defining a model requires a theory that helps to make sense of the intricacies of reality. Such a theory should deliver a body of principles to select attributes, reconstruct definitions and clarify data semantics prior to and independent of automation. To control data complexity, a modelling language that is aligned with a good theory, that is understandable for humans, easy to adapt and that doesn’t need further coding to be operational, is urgently needed. A model built through such a language, that is able to represent reality and to smoothly bridge the gap to automation, is called a 7th generation model!

Data does not reflect reality

Data and analytics are critical company assets in digital transformations. But reality is often not well-represented in attributes and relationships of data structures. In general, classical ‘tainted thinking’ stimulates to dwindle reality into 4th generation record-based structures. This leads to struggles with data semantics and data modifications.

Forward engineering back to reality

To uncover the value of data, data must be disentangled from its technical representation by redirect engineering back to reality. Only when reality is clearly understood, adequate models of data and transformation logic can be designed. Then we should return to technology to represent data processing logics in expressive structures for automation.

Data processing is primarily a conceptual issue

Data and knowledge are one and the same thing. Even simple factual statements as this is a glass of water or household salary = 100.000 require law-like statements of water, glass and salary. Also definitions tend to vary across different data sources which renders data transformations even more complex. In all business areas, accurate and useful concepts for data processing are essential!

Understand reality and data

Defining data models and data processing logic that correspond to reality, requires a theory which facilitates tackling the complexities of reality, a theory that helps making sense of reality and translating it into transparent models. Such a theory should deliver a body of principles to select facts crucial for our purposes, and model definitions in a high number of constraints to clarify the semantics of data.

Current “Technology focus” leads to data quality violations

The focus in data processing is on technology as on 4th generation record-based information systems and platforms. Definitional capabilities of data processing applications are most often limited. This causes a myriad of exceptions, human interventions, data integrity violations and a cascade of work arounds.

7th generation models for seamless data processing

A data model should be understandable for humans and computers at the same time. We need a 7th generation language that is transparent to humans with any tech background, easy to adapt and that doesn’t need any further automation. This requires a technology powerful enough to represent the complexities of reality and bridge the gap to automation.

Seamless data processing in practice


Business goal reconstruction

In multi-disciplinary teams, real business goals are reconstructed applying the theory of functional classifications. These goals guide the gathering and structuring of relevant data and knowledge. Using Match™ Developer, the goals are represented in a 7th generation model.


Data model and transformation definition

In collaboration with domain experts, a data universe is designed of source and target data together with a model of transformation knowledge. This results in a transparent and consistent single-point-of-truth 7th generation model.


7th generation data processing

The AI reasoning engine drives the Match™ Data Processor. It conducts data transformations without code. Changes are accommodated easily as the 7th generation models are written in business language and the integrity is automatically checked.


Seamless operations based on data and knowledge

The quality and flexibility of 7th generation data processing keep the new data source completely aligned to the business ambitions to serve clients and employees through relevant data and intelligence at the same time.  

7th generation models

The theory of functional classifications takes AI and Data Science to the next level. It explains intrinsic characteristics of reality as equivalence and relativity and the theory delivers practical guiding principles to model data, definitions and processing logic. The Match™ AI & Data platform is aligned to this theory and built upon solid foundations of mathematical logic. The highly advanced cloud-based Match™ platform allows the business to design 7th generation models that are executable without code and capable of executing complex data transformations.

Showcase regulatory reporting

Data processing based on Match™ knowledge models is the new way of conducting digital transformations. We model the reality of complex business processes and have this model immediately available as an application. Knowledge Values already achieved improvements in key areas like risk and fraud detection, scalable and secure data migrations, anti-money laundering and regulatory reporting.

Regulatory reporting through 7th generation models

In the insurance industry, the Match™ Data Processor is applied to the annual reporting process of life insurance policies to the Tax Authority. Raw client data from different source systems is unified and transformed according to guidelines through 7th generation models ensuring compliance with the standards of the Tax Authority. Audit reports are composed per insurance policy and delivered automatically to the electronic archive. Through well-specified logic and robotised human knowledge, the workload of the reporting process decreased by 80% and maintenance costs dropped by 90%, while at the same time reporting errors were eliminated.
