Governance – We share a holistic approach to Data Governance that begins in the early consulting and data assessment process and weaves it way through the full implementation process to identify meaning procedures and data standards to ensure the business data continuity in the availability, integrity and security of all enterprise data.
That said, often times once the formal policies and structure are in place, adherence to data protocols evolves into day to day date operations that insure that the new data and its sources do not become subject to degradation and/or loss.Upon successfully data migration, pragmatic samples of ongoing data governance (DG) include the following;
Manual Data Input to ensure the data is up to date in all departments. This could be due to number of reasons such as; migration errors, shutdown periods, or even by design.
Data Exceptions often necessitate addressing day to day data issues during the initial days,weeks, and months after the initial project has Go-Live status. This requires developing client specific queries to identify and quickly allocate resources to address these issues.
Advanced Analytics tools are a very important, often overlooked, but a growing aspect of the SAP Data Implementation process. Our team will help you leverage powerful tools such as SAP Information Steward to perform comprehensive data profiling and metadata management.
