Right first time Business Intelligence Data Governance Toolkit Data Governance Maturity Assessment

Data governance toolkit components

  • Perform a data governance maturity assessment in order to establish any data governance already working well within your organisation and the likely level of governance and level of MDM user education necessary before going too far.
  • Provide any agreed initial MDM user / project member education.
  • Road map the as-is and to-be data governance organisation.
  • Road map the candidate data assets for a MDM implementation.

After this fixed price phase, a non fixed price exercise follows which is to detail the scope and programme plan in order to set expectations and draw-down investment in the first bite-sized phase of the MDM implementation. We have found it is paramount to separate the subsequent detailed scoping MDM implementation phases from overall MDM objectives otherwise you might fail to realise what the end game could be like.

Why road-map before implementing?

We don’t recommend you implement an MDM strategy without first understanding where data is “mastered” during its lifecycle. It is classic that customer or product data or more than likely a combination of the two, may typically be “mastered” in different IT systems during its lifecycle today. We have formulated a data governance toolkit to aid you.

For example, product data is created and maintained in a product procurement system by your in-house buyers, then depending on your divisional structure perhaps re-keyed into one or more of your purchase order system(s) so that a supplier order can be placed. It could well be re-keyed yet again and there remain as it is maintained during it’s lifecycle within your product master system for synchronising to your point-of-sale system / ERP system etc.
