Enterprises are increasingly looking for ways to better leverage the data generated from their business operations. Effectively leveraging this data involves a number of different steps and supporting technology components: mining, collecting, analyzing, archiving, and visualizing the data and data analysis results. Complicating the process further is the common practice of dividing large-scale projects into more or less autonomous corporate teams with their own unique data archiving and management methods. 

To be effective, data must to be effectively gathered, shared and utilized among the different, distributed project teams within large-scale enterprises—teams in different physical locations with distinct project tasks and software specific to those tasks. The data produced by these software systems is typically maintained in closed architecture databases, and the tools themselves have private data repositories. The data generated by these tools is not inaccessible; the problem is that the semantic content of this data (i.e., the information itself) is typically not accessible to other agents (human or computer) of the organization.

KBSI has worked on numerous research initiatives focused on developing technologies for more effectively leveraging data. These technologies include tools for digital asset visualization and management of repair facilities, ramp sites, and equipment for the Air Force (the RAMPMAP® toolkit), a system for monitoring, diagnosing, and analyzing preventative maintenance action data for the Army (PPMES), and a framework for generating standards-based data visualization (HI-FIVE) that includes a data display format called the Data Display Markup Language (DDML) that was also developed by KBSI.
