Microsoft Technology

Our Database Solutions 

Phase Eleven designed and developed a custom built computer database from Microsoft SQL Server technology for comprehensive processing of all data generated during a chapter 11 case.  All data includes, but is not limited to communications, company provided files, court orders, diligence materials, document production materials and filed pleadings.   

Based on tens of thousands of hours of real world chapter 11 work experience, we developed a flexible data model to benefit all parties to a chapter 11 by providing an organizational relationship structure which records and reports data for comprehensive case information at reasonable costs

We termed it the Relational Restructuring Database because it was designed to interrelate chapter 11 information occuring during the course of a case for future case needs.  Interrelationship translates into cost savings, faster emergency response, greater information availability and stronger productivity. 

By creating data relationships among communications, creditors, deadlines, diligence materials, document production materials, pleadings, responses and orders and outcomes, data becomes more valuable for present and future uses during a chapter 11 case.  These relationships are valuable to case professionals and the company in making decisions and providing information related to the restructuring allowing for more predictive outcomes and reduced response time.  

Data management

Chapter 11 is a data intensive endeavor with communications, creditors, deadlines, diligence materials, document production materials, pleadings, responses, orders and outcomes which all must be tracked and documented.  Our Relational Restructuring Database utilizes the following architecture to manage all that data:

  • Integrated management environment to monitor, manage and tune all portions of case databases across enterprise
  • Fast integration of large volumes of data into database
  • Large table partitioning to increase case file manageability and performance
  • Single, consistent management interface to manage multiple instances on a single server

Functionality

For cohesive and comprehensive coverage of all chapter 11 case issues, we built a database which could record and respond to every chapter 11 issue the founder encountered in his eleven year commitment to chapter 11 restructuring.  The results were a database which included:  

  • Scalable analytic solutions which incorporate the latest in Microsoft SQL Server design, performance, scalability, data mining and user interface enhancements
  • Incorporation of multi-source data mining across case database structures

Performance

Restructuring issues require a rapid response which often necessitates knowledge, skills and abilities that can tax all case professionals.  Our computer database was built to provide relevant data, online within a moments notice to case professionals and company officials, regardless of the number of professionals seeking information.  Some of the performance features of our database include, but are not limited to:

  • Creative/flexible database elements which can function independent of network  
  • Real time computation of relational and non-relational data
  • Highly responsive reporting solutions
  • Broad based data file analysis with extensive analytical capabilities
  • Unified and integrated view of all business data
  • Consolidate enterprise-wide audit records from multiple sources

Scalability

The number of creditors to a chapter 11 can quickly consume valuable case resources, which is why we designed and developed a database that could provide solid support to cases that include millions of creditors.  Some of the Microsoft SQL Server elements which allow for scalability include, but are not limited to: 

  • Single environment integration, reporting and analytic solutions
  • Case issue partitioning
  • Ad hoc structured reports
  • Predictive insight data mining models 
  • Application of scalable analytical engine technology

Security

A chapter 11 case database will be accessed by thousands, if not tens of thousands of creditors and case professionals over the course of a case.  From general public inquiries to specific secure online access queries, a chapter 11 case database will receive a lot of use.   

A chapter 11 database will contain sensitive information which can affect the outcomes of creditor settlements and will be relied upon for reporting and response to chapter 11 issues.     

These are just a few of the reasons why our database has some of the strongest security available on the market today.  The following is a partial list of our database security elements: 

  • Transparent data encryption and advanced auditing
  • Strong authentication and access control
  • Powerful encryption and key management capabilities
  • Enhanced auditing
