STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the DFS Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 996 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which DFS improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 996 standard requirements:

  1. Does the vendor provide fully featured integration with Big Data sources like Hadoop distributions and NoSQL databases, including visual design for ingestion, processing, & other workflow?

  2. Is it possible to implement a distributed file system, retaining the advanced protocol features of systems like Coda, while getting an implementation that is an order of magnitude simpler?

  3. How is it that a proprietary, predominantly on-premise enterprise software vendor generates more revenue from Big Data than all of the commercial Hadoop distributions combined?

  4. How do you simplify deployment, configuration, tuning, and optimization of Apache Hadoop software and start delivering speedy analytics sooner rather than later?

  5. What factors are driving, or would drive, your organizations interest in using Hadoop or other NoSQL/alternative data management/processing platforms?

  6. How do you ensure that a specific server is always placed first or last in the list of servers provided to the client when accessing a namespace?

  7. How does a cluster differ from a distributed system, in terms of architecture, and in terms of tasks for which the system is typically used?

  8. Does impala performance improve as it is deployed to more hosts in a cluster in much the same way that Hadoop performance does?

  9. Is there an expectation from DFS that other organizations establish a model validation team specific for AML/Sanctions?

  10. Have changes been implemented to your financial consumer protection legal frameworks to address DFS developments?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any DFS project with this in-depth DFS Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose DFS projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in DFS and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make DFS investments work better.

This DFS All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
