Why another term? 1 The role of quality for information logistics management 3 What's in it for me? 4 After 20 years of research in data warehousing and business intelligence, what are the biggest managerial challenges? 2

Why another term? 1
  • Information Logistics: Planning, Implementation and Control of Cross-unit Data Flows Data flows relevant for information logistics © 06/06/09 IWI-HSG, Robert Winter Slide adapted from [Dinter / Winter 2008] Business Unit A Business Unit B Company A Company B Department A Depart- ment B Job A Job B
  • IL Characteristics
    • Only cross-unit data flows are considered:
      • Data flows between jobs in a department
      • Data flows between departments in a business unit
      • Data flows between business units in a company or legal unit
      • Data flows between companies in a value network or between legal unit in a corporation
      • NON-LOCAL
    • Focus on ANALYTICAL data use (= information supply)
    • Only managerial issues are considered:
      • Engineering management (requirements, design, financials)
      • Operations management (responsibilities, organization)
      • NON-TECHNICAL

  • The Value Proposition of Information Logistics “ Supply the right information with appropriate quality (e.g. timeliness, correctness) to cover all relevant information demand which are based on data originating from other units” Customer orientation Quality orientation Business orientation © 06/06/09 IWI-HSG, Robert Winter Slide
  • Information Logistics vs. Existing Concepts © 06/06/09 IWI-HSG, Robert Winter Slide Local & Cross-unit & Short Term Long Term Perspective Perspective Managerial Focus Technical Focus Information Logistics Data Warehousing Business Intelligence
  • Why Yet Another Term?
    • Data warehousing : focus on certain integration technology
    • Business intelligence : focus on ‘local’ utilization process
    • MSS/DSS, MIS, EIS : specific types of users or types of analyses
    • For corporate information management, we need an additional perspective which
      • is focusing on cross-unit synergies
      • is open for all suitable technology / integration approaches
      • is focusing on sustained operations rather than on development only
    • and which
      • is not focused on operational data integration alone
      • is not focused on “internal” (e.g. workplace) data integration
    © 06/06/09 IWI-HSG, Robert Winter Slide
  • IL Focuses on Synergy Exploitation
    • “ The whole is more than the sum of its parts”
    • By planning, implementing and controlling data flows across units (and storing / provisioning such data), more value can be generated than by using such data only locally
    • Examples
      • Using claims data for policy pricing (synergies across departments of same business unit)
      • Using sales data of banking unit for cross-selling by insurance unit (synergies across business units of same company)
      • Using airline status data for offerings by hotel or rental car company (synergies across companies)

  • Business and Technology Focus Alternates
    • Technology Innovation
      • e.g. SAP R/2, SAS, EAI tools, SAP byDesign
      • Initially isolated, often end-to-end solutions
    • Business Digestion from a Project Perspective
      • Business case for innovation projects
      • Do‘s and dont‘s for innovation projects
    • Technology Integration
      • e.g. meta data, master data
      • Integration from a technical perspective: standards and interfaces
    • Business Digestion from a Operations Perspective
      • Integration from a business perspective: architecture, guidelines
      • Economics of (sustained) operations : service definition, pricing mechanisms
      • From (temporary) project organization towards (permanent) process organization
      • Best practices, reference models
      • Finally standardization, development of benchmarks, consolidation / increased efficiency

  • IL Development: Project by Project vs. IL Operations: Integrated Project 1 Project 2 Project 3 Project n IL Operations © 06/06/09 IWI-HSG, Robert Winter Slide
  • Managerial Challenges After 20 Years of DWH/BI Research
    • Operations organization
      • IL product / service (reference) catalogues
      • IL operations (reference) models
    • Operations financials
      • IL business value calculation and investment models
      • IL pricing models
    • Strategy & marketing
      • IL strategy process
      • IL marketing and business value communication
    • No method / reference model fits all! We need application scenarios as a foundation for
      • situational method adaption and
      • situational reference solution adaption

  • The Data Quality Management Challenge: There are Always Trade-offs to Consider… Quality Speed Output (volume, capacity, service) Costs Assumption: Development capabilties are a constant © 06.06.09 IWI-HSG, Robert Winter Slide + - + - - + - +
  • The Contribution of Data Quality to Information Logistics
    • Actual events prove that it becomes ever more, not less important to supply the right information with appropriate quality to cover information demands by (human and machine) decision makers.
    • Inadequate quality is as much a problem as lateness, bad service levels or excessive costs.
    • Cost management and output management may be less disputed than quality (and speed) management because they are more “technical” (i. e. can be approached by IT alone).
    • Quality (and speed) management need an integrated business-to-IT approach . “What”, “how” and “by what means” questions need to be approached holistically and systematically by business and IT together .

  • Where are the Synergies? (And who is in Charge?)
    • Industrialization requires that large amounts of similar activities are pooled. Since products, markets and processes become ever more differentiated (and such business units), industrialization can only be driven by the corporate center.
    • Many data do not originate at the same place where they create business value. In order to identify and exploit data integration potentials, information logistics can only be driven by the corporate center.

  • Informations Logistics: What‘s in it for me?
    • For business units
      • Industrialization allows to use professional, cost efficient services
      • Utilization or integration of “foreign” information enables new decision support (and maybe business innovation) potentials
    • For shared service units
      • The more business units are provided with data, the more efficient information logistics can be implemented
    • For the corporation as a whole
      • The whole is worth more than the sum of its parts only if synergies are looked for, and exploited
      • Certain business solutions (e. g. one stop customer experience) can only be implemented if partial information is integrated
    © 06.06.09 IWI-HSG, Robert Winter Slide
  • The Road Ahead
    • Actual developments prove that more, faster and better decisions are needed. Industrialization and e-everything lead to more data and more fragmentation .
    • The gap widens between
      • demand for timely supply of more, higher quality data and
      • availability of more, more fragmented, often inconsistent data
    • While enterprise-wide technical approaches (DWH) and local business approaches (BI) have matured, information logistics needs to be established as an enterprise-wide, business oriented approach to information management .
    • Quality issues have high impact on overall information mgt performance. IL quality mgt (like speed mgt) is (at least) as important as output mgt and cost mgt.
