Data readiness

You will generate value if you manage to reuse data.  We can help you reveal the necessary dependencies between data. Analysis of dependencies gives us an optimal technical sequence for development. If you follow this sequence you will build your applications with minimum effort, maximum quality and in shortest time.

Development sequence

Very often you must follow business priorities when you initiate change initiatives.  But neglecting data readiness and the optimal technical sequence you miss opportunities and you close your eyes for emerging project risks.

How we can help

  • Assist you in developing your optimal technical sequence that leads to data readiness
  • Show you how to prepare for and utilise the optimal sequence
  • Show you how to use the dependencies in risk assessment
  • Show you how a combination of business priorities and data readiness gives added value

METHOD DETAILS

CONCEPTS

Changes come frequently. A stream of change initiatives will transform the enterprise. This process must be managed using a value-driven business architecture. Leaders and managers will benefit.
We regard it as the most important tool for coordinating changes and systems development. The sequence can be derived from the information architecture. It is a must if your ambition is to
  • become an agile business
  • reduce cost, risk and time to market
Information is used to managed all of your business resources, like money, personnel, technology etc. It should be managed as a resource itself in the same manner as we manage other resources (how we plan, acquire, use etc). Information is abstract, and we need models to represent it. An information architecture holds these models and lets us manage information as a resource in a structured and controlled manner.
Change initiatives can span from small process improvements to large business development efforts. It can be a project, but not necessarily. So when we use the term “change initiative”, it is neutral for how work is organised.
