Managing Data Quality

Management of critical business data is essential in today’s world of multiple, integrated (or disparate) information systems. Inadequate controls to establish and maintain accurate Master Data is a leading cause of business systems not providing the needed output to support developing high-quality plans and making superior business decisions. Common pitfalls include a “set it and forget it” approach, and reliance on tribal knowledge. AVATA understands the challenges in ensuring that Master Data is properly maintained, and we have the tools and expertise to implement best-in-class practices.

Master Data Management (MDM)

Master Data Management comprises the policies, processes, governance, standards and tools used to consistently define and manage the critical data of an organization to provide a single point of reference, and ensure integrity of the data.

With decades of hands-on experience in Supply Chain Management, Finance, and Sales and Operations Planning, AVATA consultants can help you effectively manage your Master Data and establish best practice MDM governance.  Without data governance there is little chance of MDM succeeding so it makes perfect sense to build out an MDM strategy only when you have a well managed data governance framework covering the business subject areas in place. We help ensure the data gets established correctly the first time, that ongoing monitoring and maintenance practices are in place, that the root cause of data integrity issues are identified, and that  effective corrective actions are put in place and validated. The result is better system generated plans and accurate data for use in improved decision making.

 

AVATA’S MDM ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

  1. Conduct Interviews with management and key users of corporate business systems
  2. Gather sample data for review and validation
  3. Perform a comparison to best practices for policies, processes and metrics used to manage Master Data
  4. Generate a Scorecard and Summary Report of findings and recommendations
  5. Prioritize where the greatest potential improvements will come from and a ranking of greatest risk to business plans
