It underlies every business decision, customer relationship, and business investment. How can you know if the information that you rely on everyday is the most accurate, consistent, and reliable?.

Global Data Excellence

Global Data Excellence (GDE) provides a radically different approach to maximising business process efficiency and reducing enterprise risk using enterprise data.

GDE's Data Excellence Management System (DEMS) measures and presents the business impact (cost and risks) of non-compliant data in monetary terms. This "show me the money" approach bridges the gap between business and IT data management professionals by alligning and linkiing business objectives to data management processes.

The DEMS enables sustainable data governance by linking data quality to business impact and value. Key features include:

  • The ability to measure and visualise the business impact of non-compliant data on business processes and transactions.
  • Full issue management of non compliant data based on accountability within the business at the business rule level, and within the data management team at the data attribute level.
  • The ability to do root cause analysis based on configurable data hierarchies

Once business owners can measure the impact of poor data quality in terms of cost and risk they become motiavted to actively participate and address these issues. This is the core value of the DEMS

What problems are introduced by it? The balance? So … why do we keep toiling with master data?” Henrik’s response…

Research shows that data scientists typically spend an average of 60% of their time simply trying to find and prepare the…
