  • 2. “Data Management” Vision: We have defined & implemented a data management function that supports the data supply & data quality requirements of the Bank and external entities. BUSINESS INTENT V0.2 A WHERE ARE WE NOW? B WHERE DO WE WANT TO BE?Current State Future StateData Quality - Issues:1. Front line staff have an impact on data quality but most likely do not realise the down stream impact of work arounds or short cuts [eg always entering a reason C WHAT DO WE NEED TO GET THERE? Data Quality - Issues: 1. We have an ongoing data quality management program in place to e nsure minimal errors at data capture. code because ‘it works’ not because it is correct]. 2. We have communicated & achieved a balance between customer servic e & data quality backed up by system validation2. Business focus is on customer service not necessarily data quality. where appropriate.3. Issue with completeness; accuracy; and consistency of data entered into systems. Dependencies 3. We have addressed data accuracy issues with standard data entry rules & system validation where appropriate.4. Lack of system rules or checks to prevent the entry of incorrectdata at source system front ends. Data is entered in numerous formats ( eg hyphenated names; 4. The organisation has a greater commitment to the resolution of d ata issues. street addresses; etc). 1. Executive buy in and ongoing support of a data management function. 5. We have created roles for the detection of data issues and provision of feedback to staff.5. No education or feedback process for staff who enter data [eg when recognised – staff are not told of errors and the impacts they may have]. 2. Recognition at all levels of the organisation that this is not a trivial task – it is 6. Our data quality approach includes feedback & staff education to highlight/rectify data entry issues.6. No ownership or responsibility for detecting errors and providing the necessary feedback to staff. a major undertaking that we have attempted previously and failed. 7. We have a Bank-wide glossary of agreed definitions to ensure consistent use of terminology.7. No organisational focus on resolution of data errors. 3. Adequate resourcing of the data management function. 8. Data quality – we have ascribed a business cost to the entry & ongoing use of poor quality data.8. No common terminology – no single glossary or data dictionary to facilitate data sharing. 4. Adequately skilled business staff to undertake the data management9. No one could say who is ultimately accountable for data quality & data integrity. function. Data Management – Governance:10.

We have established a single point of ownership of data and reduced the incidence of data redundancy.12.

Dependency – the Bank’s future GL strategy & approach. 13. There is an organisation wide commitment, from Board & Executive down, to the adherence to data management13. No review of data management processes or requirements since integration. principles.14. No owner of data management. 14. We have an understanding of the benefits & cost savings to be achieved from a sound data management approach.15. Need for governance/management approach to be determined – centralised or decentralised? 15. We have established clear responsibility & accountability for da ta management [data quality & data integrity].16.17. Definition of data rules required – who owns them [the organisation or each department]? No single point of ownership for data – also have multiple stores and views for same piece of data. D HOW DO WE MAKE IT HAPPEN? 16. The Data Management group has the authority to enforce data quality initiatives.18. Lack of commitment by all levels of the business to adhere to da ta management principles – for expediency, business areas will source and manipulate data Data Management – Controls: themselves and not take an organisational view. High -level project tasks 17. Data/information is readily accessible to those staff authorised to source it.19.

We have implemented system controls to assist with the input of quality data. 2. Determine how much detail is required by Executive to prove the worth of the22. Short term approach – there is a need for additional controls [eg do not allow any more customer data extracts for new databases]. 22. We have implemented manual & systematic validation/reconciliation processes to ensure the ongoing integrity of the initiative.23. There are no details on what data fields are important/required to the run the business [eg what is it that makes a branch/channel successful]. Bank’s data resources. 3.

There is no common definition of data fields/terminology – makes it difficult to consolidate data. 45.

Our data sources have data structures that are less complex and easily adapted to change. warehouse/s.53. No plans to decommission these unsupported data sources – should be built in as part of future initiative.54.
