Data Compatibility & Harmonisation

Database Compatibility

Database Issues

The increased use of Database Management Systems, Business Planning and Control Systems, Enterprise Resource Planning, Management Information Systems, and other tools amongst, management professionals has produced a critical need for the harmonisation of data across various software applications and systems platforms.

For this reason all the databases and reports provided by us use harmonised databases and data sets; thereby users can obtain any database from any of the publishers, for any of their brands, with the assurance that these databases are fully compatible and can be used in conjunction with one another and the various operating systems and software.

The DataGroup Stiftung has, since 2007, undertaken the harmonisation and convergence of the database specifications and definitions of the various database providers shown on this site. This was to allow users a uniform and standardised reference to use with their commercial and corporate planning and forecasting; and to allow cross-database functionality.

The data sets, modules and standards shown on this site are now fully harmonised and standardised to allow data and software interflow and cross-platform usage of the databases.  Users may obtain older data dictionaries and standards, and/or data sets and data dictionaries for their own national standards. The standard product and market definitions have been harmonised and are provided (in the standard database products supplied) as the NAICS classifications. Users wishing to remain with the previous SIC classifications may obtain these databases under that classification system. Users requiring other (European, Japanese, et cetera) classification definitions and norms may obtain those as necessary. Accounting standards are also harmonised according to the U.S. regulatory norms; however other norms are available. Data dictionary and data definition bridges and converters are available to allow users to update or standardise their databases. The DataGroup Stiftung has undertaken to maintain support for the older data dictionary standards and definitions for the next 7 years, however users are urged to update at their earliest convenience.

Our databases are compatible with the major commercial databases as well as government databases:-






There are currently 5 Toolkits available, and these can be downloaded if required.

 9. US Census Data Tools

Because all our database are directly compatible with U.S. Government databases (especially the Department of Commerce, US census, NIST, Treasury, et al) it is sometimes useful for users to use US Government data handling tools to manage not only US Government data, but also the data provided by us. Alternatively, if you are already using this US Government software you can simply access our databases with the same software. In generate our databases use the same database parameters, structures and field names as those found in US Government databases, and thus uses can correlate and query databases without undue difficulty.
