Assess & Document

During an Infinite Green Data Services’ assessment, we will uncover, demystify, and document your company’s data assets and management practices.  At the end of this phase, you will have a complete understanding of the strengths and opportunities of your company’s data strategy.

 

Our Assessment Framework

Technology

Data Movement Analysis – from source system to your final report, we will de-construct your processes moving your data from point A to point B. 

Databases – we deep dive into your infrastructure, architecture, and responsiveness of your database technology as core components of our assessment.  Cost, resource availability, redundancy, and audiences also will be analyzed.

Reporting – our assessment will examine and grade your development resources, data management practices, current tool sets, and the accuracy of the reports being used.

  • What applications have you purchased to manage and structure your data?
    • Data discovery tools vs. static reports
    • Secondary platforms (mobile, 3rd Party, Client, etc.)
    • Database, NoSQL, data movement tools
  • Do you have a Customer Database?
    • Definition of the inputs
    • Definition of the outputs
  • How accurate is your data?
    • Perception
    • Reality

People
We will define your current business goals and assess whether technology exists to fully drive business performance and achievement toward meeting those goals.

What are your business goals?

How is data used at your company?

What Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are used to gauge the business goals?

  • What metrics tie directly to your KPIs?
  • What is the breadth depth of available metrics?

Process
We are going to break down and define your data processes into consumable stages and sequences. We will then aggregate these processes into an Executive Summary, with a recommended path.

  • Who owns the applications?
  • What data is contained in the applications?
  • Are there Operational Data Stores (ODS)?
  • Who is responsible for the data within the applications?
  • How does information move throughout the organization?
    • Collaboratively
    • By Department (IT vs. Business)
    • Formal teach-outs (i.e. only on a ‘need to know’ basis)
