Examples; 10 of the 765 standard requirements:

  1. Bad data damages your organization and hurts your decisions. Does data management help you analyze, improve and control data from one platform regardless of source, size or variety? How are you measuring results?

  2. The term master data brings up different interpretations and connotations, especially with vendors espousing the single version of the truth. is there a single version of the truth for your organization?

  3. The power of BYOD allows employees to use personal mobile devices to access corporate applications. What if the application does not have a mobile equivalent version which can be managed under MDM?

  4. How will you create and maintain an MDM governance organization that includes executive sponsorship, policy making, decision arbitration and daily operational administration?

  5. How do you prevent that master records seem to get into a change, change back cycle as two different groups of users attempt to enforce two different sets of business rules?

  6. In the case of data quality you will also need to address the business issue of how good you need your data quality to be: is a 10% error rate acceptable or only 5%, or 20%?

  7. Master data management: are there presently any 3rd party external data quality services that are integrated into the current system that are in-scope and to be retained?

  8. How confident are you when it comes to the security of business data including that of your customers/clients in an increasingly mobile and cloud-oriented environment?

  9. In many cases there are external stakeholders that will also require training such as providers, community partners, etc. Will you have to train external providers?

  10. Master data management: do you have an estimate of the quality of current master data, such as estimates of the percentage of duplication, percentage of junk data?

    The Verdict: The Complete Self-Assessment package ticks a lot of checkboxes, especially for businesses testing the waters for decision making and performance enhancement and for companies that can not have a full-time professional on payroll to guide the initial implementation of their drive.
