Hub Solution Designs, Inc. is a management & technology consulting firm specializing in Master Data Management (MDM).
The readiness assessment is a follow-up to our MDM “Master Class” workshop, and can be followed by in-depth sessions on business case creation & ROI analysis, and software evaluation & selection.
Master Data Management is a blending of new “data hub” technology with data quality improvement, state-of-the-art integration, enrichment with external information and data governance techniques.
And leading companies are finding that MDM delivers measurable business value and improvements in the bottom line.
But organizations should take a hard look at their ability to successfully implement MDM:
- Requires a blended approach, addressing organizational change, process improvement, technology implementation and more sophisticated data management
- Because of its cross-functional and on-going nature, requires more executive sponsorship
- Will need a Data Governance Council and Data Management Team, working closely with business owners and the IT team
The Readiness Assessment deliverable consists of a detailed report, including review of:
- Readiness issues relating to organizational politics & culture, as well as a skills assessment on people who need training or technical assistance
- Process issues, outlining areas where business processes need improvement or redesign
- Technology issues, detailing where essential components such as data quality, integration or enrichment are not present or not able to support your upcoming MDM initiative
- Where improvements are needed in how the organization manages internally & externally provided information
This detailed report is reviewed with the sponsor at the end of the engagement.
An MDM readiness assessment will identify potential issues with your People, Process, Technology and Information while there’s still time to do something about them.
Let our experts find your issues before they affect your MDM initiative’s functionality, cost or schedule.
By completing an MDM readiness assessment, you’ll gain insight into whether your initiative is “structured for success”:
- How to manage organizational & cultural issues
- Where your business processes and technology architecture need improvement
- How to set up a data governance program to support your MDM objectives
