Our aim is to combine EDM capability and effective data governance within a single application – is that possible?
Data Governance describes the overall management around the availability, usability, integrity, and security of the data employed in an enterprise. At one level, the firm must establish the governing controls, standards, policies, organisation, people and reporting lines around their key data sets. Once this is in place, effective data governance is all about having the control and visibility over the underlying data processes and the visible evidence that these processes are in line with the standards and policies.
Curium provides this level of control and visibility by integrating a data governance layer over any of the data attributes and data sets that are captured and processed within the EDM platform – typically the main operational data. For any data attribute processed by CuriumEDM, the Data Management and Governance teams can answer all the key questions directly from Curium: Who owns this data? How is it defined? How do we use the data in constructing our master data sets? What validation and quality controls do we apply over it? Where is this data consumed within our main business applications, data stores and outputs? Effective data governance and data lineage exposed over the entire data process – directly from your EDM solution.
And what is the advantage of integrating EDM and the Data Governance layer in a single toolset? Data Governance becomes a self documenting and relevant ‘out of the box’ process. – No longer just a set of documented data guidelines, procedures and quality controls that have to be maintained and updated as a separate, ongoing exercise – it’s all just a part of the day to day operational process.
Effective data governance and data lineage directly from your EDM solution.
Combine CuriumEDM with CuriumDQM’s workflow and incident management capabilities and you can extend your data governance coverage to ensure that any data issues arising are assigned the correct level of accountability and visibility. Data Governance and Management can be confident that they can answer the following questions.
- When data issues arise is there a visible incident management process?
- Can the organisation see ownership and accountability against data issues and resolution?
- Does the issue management process feed back to the senior sponsorship and data governance organisation?
- Is the process audited and does it generate meaningful Management Information (MI)?
Ultimately it is the MI that is the end result of a data governance programme and confirms that data governance is working and the business is meeting its data objectives.
