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

Some of our clients have, for example, identified more than 1000 individual systems that hold client data. While this level of complexity is extreme, the reality is that most large organisations have…
  • Did a lack of EIM fundamentals cost Hillary the US presidency?
    Last week I looked at how misinterpreting the polling data had most of believing that Trump had no real chance of winning the presidency. This same belief, seems to have misled Clinton and her team. Rather than campaigning to defend traditional Democratic strongholds – such as Michigan and Pennsylvania – Clinton and her team chose…
