STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Integration Competency Center 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 977 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Integration Competency Center improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 977 standard requirements:

  1. In many cases the BICC can support its own funding through the cost savings realized by eliminating redundant tools or reducing the overhead of expensive support and maintenance contracts. As the BICC becomes more strategic, it becomes more difficult to quantify its intrinsic value. How can you measure better decision making?

  2. Do you have an IAM architect? Hastily deployed pockets of identity infrastructure need to be maintained for the full lifetime of the devices. You do not want to set a presence of systems with low assurance levels that an organization later must handle. Do you need end-to-end authentication and authorization?

  3. Do you see specific areas that would benefit from increased interoperability (such as when the same work in areas like data transformation or data integration needs to be done over and over again or is very effort-intensive)?

  4. Almost every data warehouse project has the same objective: one version of the truth. however, what is data integration worth if there are still many ways most of which are flawed to interpret the data?

  5. Consideration for forming a BICC is driven by a need and urgency for change, specifically around the ability to meet business demand for better decisions using BI technology. Who is feeling the pain?

  6. Have you had problems with heterogeneous data, bad data, lack of storage capacity, unanticipated financial/time costs, inadequate cooperation from data owners or lack of data management expertise?

  7. Do you measure the responsiveness and quality provided to your stakeholders. Have commitments been met, software deployed, response times honored, processes documented, training completed?

  8. How can the director of business process shared services make and sustain appropriate trade-offs between process standardization and variation to optimize both cost and innovation?

  9. Should data be modeled and standardized across Enterprise systems such as data sources, applications, EDW and Data Marts so that data and information exchanges are consistent?

  10. What lessons can you learn from this and how can you apply them in a corporate setting to understand how they might impact the operations of an integration competency center?

  4. Responsibility Assignment Matrix: What is the purpose of assigning and documenting responsibility?

  5. Activity Cost Estimates: What is the last item a Integration Competency Center project manager must do to finalize Integration Competency Center project close-out?

  6. Human Resource Management Plan: Is there an on-going process in place to monitor Integration Competency Center project risks?

  7. Human Resource Management Plan: Based on your Integration Competency Center project communication management plan, what worked well?
