Data Governance Operating Model

Organisations in the Asia-Pacific region are awakening to the importance of Data Governance, not just for regulatory compliance but as the fouundation for the next wave of efficiency, productivity and automation. You can’t become a data-driven organisation if your data is untrusted or of unknown quality and veracity. Let us work with you to define the ideal “target state” methodology and processes, organisational strucutre, technology eco system and project roadmap for a data governance culture that matches your business needs.

Critical Data Management Assets

Data aware organisations are discovering the value of key data management assets: the Data Catalog, Business Glossary, Dataset Dictionary and Report Inventory. We can work with you to implement best practices for the design, utilisation and optimisation of these critical assets.

Data Catalog Implementation

The Modern Data Catalog is an AI-powered inventory of your data assets which makes it fast and easy for information workers to discover and access the data they need to drive faster insights, decisions and competitive advantage. BIIT Analytics works with leading technologies globally to implement best practice Data Catalogs that accelerate time to value and fast-track your data governance initiatives.

Dataset Dictionary Implementation

Complementing your Data Catalog, the Dataset Dictionary is the key artefact in ensuring that the analyst who is accessing the data understands its source and granularity; the context from which it was derived, and the appropriate (and inappropriate) ways in which it may be (and should not be) used and understood. It is critical in ensuring safe data access and usage in Data Lake and “self serve” BI environments, BIIT Analytics can provide best practice guidance on designing, implementing and maintaining your Dataset Dictionary.

Business Glossary Design

A Business Glossary makes available to all information consumers in an organisation, critical definitions of terms that appear in the reports they work with on a daily basis. It minimises the risk of “implicit” definitions being assumed for certain terms, metrics and KPIs, and provides a reference point for the clarification of any questions regarding the meaning or implications of measures and trends in key corporate reports. We can guide your organisation on the best approaches to establishing, rolling out and improving your Business Glossary.


Reports Rationalisation

A Report Inventory provides a brief description of the reports that are available to information consumers across the organisation. It complements (rather than duplicates) the Business Glossary and the Dataset Dictionary, as it provides a view of what information is available in the form of reports. It’s also a key artefact in reducing duplicate or redundant reports which your Data Catalog can identify. Talk to us about reducing your BI report overhead and making sure everyone can find and access the reports they need.
