Navigating Your Data's Journey

Enterprise Data Governance technologies and guidance to transform your data landscape

Enterprise Data Governance is the practice of managing and organizing the data assets of an organization to ensure that they are secure, accurate, and in compliance with regulatory requirements. This involves developing policies and procedures for managing data, implementing tools and technologies to support these policies, and ensuring that data is accurate, complete, and trustworthy.

At SME, we understand the importance of data governance and offer an assessment to help organizations get started on their data governance journey. Our assessment evaluates the current state of data governance within an organization and identifies areas that require improvement. With this information, we can develop a tailored approach to data governance that aligns with your BI project goals and objectives.

Data Governance Framework Design

This is the process of creating a set of guidelines, policies, and procedures that ensure the effective management and use of an organization's data. It involves establishing a framework for defining data ownership, accountability, and stewardship, as well as defining the processes and procedures for managing data quality, privacy, security, and compliance.

The framework provides a standardized approach to data governance that enables organizations to manage their data more efficiently, effectively, and securely. It helps to ensure that data is accurate, complete, and consistent across the organization, which in turn improves decision-making, reduces risks, and supports compliance with regulatory requirements.

The design of a data governance framework typically involves the identification of key stakeholders, data assets, and data-related processes within the organization. This is followed by the development of policies and procedures to govern the management of data, as well as the implementation of tools and technologies to support the framework.

We work closely with stakeholders to develop a framework that aligns with the organization's business objectives, culture, and IT infrastructure. We can also provide ongoing support and guidance to ensure the successful implementation and adoption of the framework.

Data Lineage

We offer data lineage services to help you track the origin, movement, and transformation of data across the organization. This can help ensure data accuracy and provide transparency and accountability in the event of an audit or compliance review.

Our partner technologies can provide the ability to track the origin and transformation of data throughout its lifecycle. This feature allows users to understand the history of the data, including its sources, transformations, and uses. With data lineage, users can ensure that master data is accurately captured and maintained throughout its lifecycle, which is critical for compliance and regulatory purposes.

Data Quality Management

Data quality management services involve a set of activities and processes aimed at ensuring that data is accurate, complete, consistent, and reliable. The main objective of data quality management is to improve the accuracy and usefulness of data, thereby increasing the value of data as an asset for an organization.

Data quality management services include:

  • Data profiling: This involves analyzing data to identify issues such as missing values, inconsistent data, and duplicate records.
  • Data cleansing: This involves correcting or removing errors in data to ensure that it is accurate and reliable.
  • Data enrichment: This involves adding new data to existing datasets to enhance their value and usefulness.
  • Data standardization: This involves ensuring that data is formatted and structured consistently across different systems and applications.

Data quality management services are essential for organizations that rely on data to make critical business decisions. By ensuring that data is accurate and reliable, organizations can improve their decision-making processes and achieve better outcomes.

Master Data Management

We provide master data management services to help you maintain a single, authoritative source of data across the organization. This can help reduce data duplication, improve data quality, and provide a consistent view of data across the enterprise.

We partner with cloud-based platforms that provide a collaborative and secure environment for managing master data. Users can create a centralized repository for all master data and define the data governance policies and workflows for managing that data. The platform allows users to create and manage data models, taxonomies, and hierarchies to ensure consistent and accurate data across the organization.
