When it comes to data governance, the financial industry – accompanied by the D-QUANTUM software ‑ is today one step ahead of many sectors. KfW recognised early on: if you want to work with large amounts of data quickly, flexibly and reliably, you need professional data management structures and a software platform that combines various use cases in this environment. Together with Lennart Werner, Dr. Alexander Natter talks about the accomplishments of recent years and gives an outlook on how structured data management will take the data quality of the development bank to a new level.
“In this case study Dr. Alexander Natter (KfW) and I look back on our joint project. We show the added value achieved through metadata management and data quality management and explain how requirements management, metadata management and data quality management support each other.Lennart WernerHead Of Business Analysis & Product Management
With an overview of selected data management concepts at KfW and live demos in our D-QUANTUM software solution, we illustrate how these added values have been achieved and thus provide exciting insights into the implementation of Shopping4Data, Data Lineage and DQM Use Cases”
