Establish and Deploy a Framework for Procedures, Policies, and Standards
Enterprise data is generated everywhere. Systems evolve, business rules change, and performance measurement is impacted at every turn. Deploying the appropriate Master Data Management (MDM) strategy and solution is critical to your organization’s success. Whether you need a Customer MDM or Product MDM solution, or whether you’re considering solutions from Microsoft®, Informatica®, or others, we can help.
A significant component of CBIG’s consulting expertise involves the development and implementation of Master Data Management programs on behalf of our global client partners. Since its founding, CBIG has assisted leading companies across numerous industry sectors build MDM capabilities around these realities, automating processes, decreasing redundancies, increasing controls and incorporating compliance mechanisms. For MDM projects ranging from single business unit deployments to enterprise-wide initiatives, these efforts provide procedures, policies, and standards that serve as a solid framework for consistent business practices and data uniformity.
Our CBIG MDMTM consultant teams, led by CBIG thought leaders, work closely with client leadership and business units to define business challenges and goals before designing and mapping out architectures for data integration, data quality management, and data metrics. The team then develops appropriate methodologies and business process rule sets to establish an adaptable, single master source of information for data hierarchies, segmentation, and definition.
However, the design and approach definition is only the first step along the MDM path. The more difficult road lies ahead as the solution is developed and deployed. It is no small effort to change internal processes and manage the adoption of the new solution by the end users. Not only can we provide the expert resources to implement your MDM solution, CBIG Consulting can also:
- provide the change management expertise to help your organization migrate smoothly to the new solution,
- tailor time-tested change management methodologies to your environment and your timelines,
- set expectations and measure results along the way,
- help you build trust in your new solution and increase buy-in throughout your organization by providing quantifiable results showing the value that has been added.
