Who, how, where, what, when?
We answer your questions and take you on your Data Management Journey
Recognising the benefits of data
Data management, data governance or data lifecycle – you have probably heard these terms many times. Data management is a big topic that everyone is talking about.
Many companies are asking themselves how they can better use the potential of their data and increase the added value. And for many, the same is true: Data management can be more than confusing at the beginning. What do I need a functioning data management system for? How do you even get to efficient data management? And above all: where do you start?
We were often asked these precise questions over the past few years. Often, we had the right answers. But we quickly realised that many companies had a great need for thorough explanations. A clear and illustrative solution, a Data Danagement Journey, was needed.
Understanding data management better
After many brainstorming sessions, discussions and reviews, the first draft was ready and the waypoints of the journey were set. These are milestones that every company should aim for and climb in order to get a good deal closer to its goal: to develop an individual and efficient data management system.
Successfully starting the Data Management Journey – step by step
We even go one step further. It is important to us that everyone understands why they need these waypoints and milestones and should not simply skip them. The start and the basic framework are important to successfully anchor the data management in the company.
For this reason, we are currently working on the individual points of the Journey step by step. We started with the Business Glossary. It answers questions such as: “Where in the company can I find the definitions of individual data elements?”, “Who is responsible for a data set?” And: “How is the knowledge about it documented and made available?”.
The Business Glossary is an elementary component on the path to data management.
