The client needed a model that represented a unified structure for the data they had stored in software platforms such as Yardi, Argus, and other source systems of real estate data. In order to do so, Saxony would need to develop a full understanding of those source systems, as well as the data-driven decisions the client hoped to make once the model was operational.
That’s where Saxony’s team began – by reviewing existing requirements and process flows, and by interviewing key stakeholders. With the core business segments and processes identified, and key data points enumerated, work began on building the model.
In just two weeks, the Saxony team constructed the model that could store data pulled from the third-party source systems, including Yardi and Argus. This new data model spanned an extraordinary scope of the client’s business – underwriting, property accounting, fund accounting, fund performance, property performance, and valuations.
