Legacy Data & Conversion

Our information management specialists can convert legacy data into new specifications, create required formats, and establish or supplement content from existing databases. DTB provides conversion services for customers that require an accurate and fully audited transformation of unstructured, semi-structured, or fully structured data from one standard (or non-standard) format to another.

We develop comprehensive databases for specific product applications. In addition, we employ Digital Asset Management (DAM) techniques to ensure that recurrences of the same or similar information for like applications are identified and resolved. Using DAM techniques eliminates costly redundancies in data development and sustainment, as well as assists in the configuration management process.

Our conversion projects accommodate all data and image formats. DTB’s ISO process control and long-standing experience in handling critical content conversions guarantees accurate results.
