ENTERPRISE DATA STRATEGY AND PLANNING
Data Strategy a roadmap to effective data management

Companies from around the globe have generated more data, due to organizational changes - like reorganizations, new business lines, acquisitions, and regulatory changes. Rarely is this data adequately managed, and thus it is not available when and where it is needed for organizational growth and success.

Industry pundits think that there are two predominant issues that cause the road block to achieve successful Enterprise Data Management (EDM) solutions. One is a lack of a people-centric governance model and the second is the lack of a robust data management process to manage enterprise data within an organization. This is highly critical since EDM encompasses the proper identification and use of data, which translates into actionable information that can be used to manage performance throughout the organization and to achieve a long-term business strategy.

To achieve excellence in Enterprise Data Management, an organization will need to adopt a roadmap that will show a multiyear process - a data management journey that is prioritized based on business value and vision. There are three vital elements in this effort:

  • Current State Assessment: A data management assessment is required to evaluate the organization's current capabilities in several areas, like Data Structure and Databases, Data Governance, Data Storage, Data Architecture, Metadata, Data Quality and Data Security.
  • Future Vision Statement: The creation of the future state vision is achieved by analyzing the portfolio of EDM project initiatives - based on immediate business needs and the areas targeted for improvement. They may be standalone projects, for example, a data governance project that addresses a significant business issue, or a larger project initiative, such as an Enterprise Reporting.
  • Roadmap: An implementation roadmap that focuses on the sequence, in which, the future state can be achieved in an incremental manner, without impacting the current business functions. In laying out this roadmap, important factors to consider include the organization's business model, past actions and future plans, business objectives, technical dependencies and the requirements of projects already underway.
