Data Model and Standards Management Assessment

A systematic analysis of client’s Data Model standards and management processes and the development of an implementation roadmap to achieve the benefits of an enterprise modeling environment.

Product Brief

The goal of an effective data modeling infrastructure is to provide a streamlined method for achieving model component reusability and integrity across all models, and to provide a repeatable model development life cycle. A modeling infrastructure ensures reduced redundancy of data structures and measurable return on investment for the modeling process. A principle component of this infrastructure is a readily available, consistent set of data object and data model standards and accompanying processes, as applicable, to all parts of the data model life cycle.

Any significant initiative to improve data management practices not only benefits from, but is dependent upon a careful analysis of an enterprise’s data standards needs, current standards implementation and future goals. Sandhill Consultants has developed a structured approach for assessing this critical component of your data modeling environment.

Our Data Model and Standards Management Assessment provides a Findings and Recommendations document including:

  • Identification of existing data asset goals, data standards and data management processes
  • Evaluation of how your current data model standards implementation compares to industry best practices
  • Recommendations that specify measureable actions your organization can take to achieve an effective data model standards environment that meets your goals
