DATUM’s advisory services are focused on empowering our clients to establish, operationalize, and scale their information governance programs to achieve sustainable competitive advantage.
You need to know where you stand before planning for where you want to be. DATUM helps by providing a data process assessment focused on benchmarking your governance policies against industry standards. This results in an actionable roadmap outlining your company’s customized plan and leveraging what you already have. We believe that there is no “one size fits all” plan for governance.
In this classic “where do I start” scenario, it’s most important to understand what ‘good’ looks like and develop a fit-for-purpose governance strategy with a business case to gain executive support. DATUM can help you partner with business stakeholders to define how data will advance the business and what capabilities are needed to get there.
Establish the basic components of an Information Governance Program then begin executing against the model. DATUM can help by establishing a baseline and improving basic data quality focused on critical data elements for a pilot of 1 or 2 master data domains (e.g. Material, Customer, Supplier, and Finance). We can also provide interim Data Stewardship roles until your resources become self-sufficient.
Establishing or expanding data quality, automation or workflow tools, requires user requirement gathering, specification development, sizing, architectural design and training. DATUM offers best-fit evaluations to determine which tool is right for you and ensure that budget and timeline are met by avoiding costly delays and challenges.
The initial task of cleansing data has limited value unless it is followed by business processes that ensure the future integrity of the data. Achieving a faster NPI cycle or strategic sourcing or any other bottom-line business processes can be decomposed from processes all the way down to individual tasks that rely on data and metrics. DATUM helps clients define and map their existing business processes to the executive KPIs within the organization. From there, we decompose the processes and design a roadmap to improve those processes through data management.
Data has proven itself a strategic asset for business transformations and is becoming key to everything from mergers to compliance mandates to big data programs. DATUM provides data strategy and execution of the required data-centric activities and lay out a model for improvement and growth.
