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?.

Our focus, over more than ten years, is to reduce the complexity of data management.

Data Migrations

Data migrations are frequently seen as an unexciting step in building the right environment for a new enterprise application. 

Clean Data Saves Systems

For this reason, they are frequently poorly planned and poorly understood. Industry researchers, like Gartner and META Group, agree that data migration challenges can drive significant unbudgeted expenses for these projects - and are a frequent cause of project failures.

in most cases, these costs can be attributed to a design for a new application that does not take existing data complexities into account. This means that issues are discovered only during data take on - a very late stage in the implementation life cycle - and significant, costly rework is required to amend the application design to cater for these anomalies.

Manage your data migration

Master Data Management uses our proven data management methodology and market leading technology to accurately assess the fit of existing data to the business need. 

This allows us to accurately scope and implement requirements for data cleansing during the data migration ,as well as to assist with planning data structures to best accommodate existing data.

Maintain Data Standards

The last thing you need is to invest millions in new systems only to find that the data quality issues that plagued you previously have resurfaced within months of your go-live date.

Our approach allows new systems to reuse business processes and validations built to migrate data, ensuring you get the business returns you expect from your system.

    Over the last 12 months, the number of Chief Data Officers in South Africa has increased just a handful, to nearly 20. The role remains inconsistently defined – in some cases reporting directly to the CEO or COO, and in other cases seen as a more junior role, for example reporting into the CIO. A…
  • Data profiling is not data quality
    For years, I have been a proponent of data quality measurement. Data quality cannot exist without management (and some would argue without governance). Meaningful data quality metrics play a critical role in managing data quality. Posts such as Don’t blow up the whale;   Changing data behaviour through KPIs, and  Accuracy, Completeness and Speed of Execution…
