Reichert / 6Business impact of data quality?A product data example, consumer goods industryGTIN: Global Trade Item Number, standardized by Global Standards One (GS1, www.gs1.org)123452 To add additional filling may be reasonable with transparent bottles But: Not maintaining changed gross weight my cause wrong packingCapacity2 Wrong shelf planning at customers (retail) due to inaccurate measures Repacking of pallets due to inaccurate gross weightsLogisticData1 Flawed products due to too high or too low temperature during transport Temperature tolerance depends on product formula (bill of material)Temperaturefor transportation3 Different formats in several countries No globally standardized but changing formats (e.g. date, duration)Format ofexpiry date4 Wrong GTINs may cause complaints and compensations Product changes may require a new GTIN GTIN allocation depends on global and local guidelinesGTIN5Data quality is a prerequisite for correctproduct information and supply chain efficiency

Reichert / 8Defining Data Governance Data governance aims at the identification of decision rights and roles tofacilitate a consistent, company-wide behavior in the use of corporate data Also, data governance allocates responsibilities to roles to ensure theexecution of assigned decision rights Data governance results in company-wide standards, guidelines andmethodologies for creation and use of corporate dataManagement of sustainableand reliable high quality master data

Migrations, ProcessTouch Points, PoorManagement Reporting Data.Data QualityTimeProject 1 Project 2 Project 3 No risk management possible Impedes planning and controlling of budgets and resources No targets for data quality Purely reactive - when too late No sustainability, high repetitive project costs (change requests, external consulting etc.)

  • London, 04/17/13, A. Reichert / 13Example 1 - High Tech IndustryBusiness drivers for Data Governance Changing business model From product & system business to solution orientation Focus on indirect business models Trend to managed services Higher competition leads to higher cost pressure Need to simplify and harmonize processes and IT Need to simplify and strengthen the organization Changes in the market require high flexibility Reduce the complexity in products and services Enable rapid merger and acquisitionsAccurate and trustful master data are the basis for business processes andenable to react flexible on changes!
