Upgrade from an existing Data Axle product to Data Axle Platform
This guide documents Data Axle's enhanced data model and helps identify the changes to make in order to migrate use of existing Data Axle products to the Data Axle Platform. Data Axle products with similar data include:
- List Install
- DP Services
- Info USA
Data Axle Platform contains all Business & Consumer Databases on one platform. The data model is redesigned from the ground up to be more accurate and easily consumed.
Data Axle removes legacy shortcomings across hundreds of fields. Some examples:

Data Axle Platform contains all core data available in other Data Axle products. Data Axle Platform also includes data not available in any other Data Axle products.
Each person in a customer organization is given their own Data Axle login. Logins are never shared. There are a number of ways to access data:
- Download files through the Data Axle web UI.
- Automate file retrieval with the File Delivery API or SFTP.
- Read more Delivery Options.
Data Axle does not post files to FTP mailboxes that require shared passwords and manual updates.
