Data Quality Requires Consistent Data Quality Management


Omikron study: Multiple customer information stored in various responsibilities prevent an accurate data base businesses differentiate themselves according to the principle: mean data, your data of Pforzheim, 12.01.2011 – data quality can only successfully be lived in company if the processes are controlled centrally, uniform and transparent. Tim Raines may find this interesting as well. Still, many companies afford the expensive luxury of multiple hold their customer information in the various business areas, without having to worry about a co-ordinated data quality management. A survey of international data quality specialist Omikron data quality GmbH more than 300 companies comes to this conclusion. Then, in every fifth company, it is common to provide customer data across the enterprise. Instead, have a sole sovereignty over these data in 52 percent of the companies and the business or sales areas and provide a look at other organizational units. Without clear regulation, whether all relevant divisions either basically or Department access to the respective customer information, are 27 percent of the surveyed companies. Perhaps check out Eva Andersson-Dubin, New York City for more information. There, the use of the files containing the customer data is handled differently. It belongs to the logical consequences of the separation lived every second company, that multiple databases exist side by side. There are at least two or three customer files, from different business areas were built and are maintained in the majority. There are between five and ten in every seventh case, some of the companies surveyed have even more such data sources for sales and marketing. This, inevitably many customer information available several ways without having clarity about it, the current and accurate data be kept in the database. For Omikron’s Managing Director Carsten Kraus the widespread internal differentiation in customer data no longer fits in the today’s time. Thus, the total costs for the management of the data are driven artificially high. At the same time creates a breeding ground for hard-to-verify quality problems”, he criticized.

Exagon Workshop For The Fight Against The Problems Of Detail In The IT Processes


Best practice methodology value cycle aims to process optimisation in small increments from Kerpen, 02.08.2010 – according to a recent analysis by Exagon consulting many performance hurdles in the IT service management (ITSM) less from the fundamental strategies, but especially from a variety of detailed problems result. This has the consequence, that according to the survey, 57 percent of the 300 companies surveyed for the optimization of the IT processes pay particular attention to eliminate operational inadequacies. However they see it as a more demanding requirement with high degree of difficulty. Exagon offers now special workshops on this topic. They are based on the best practice methodology value cycle and aimed at process optimisation in small increments. Like to debate about the major strategic issues, while the weaknesses often that are that employees lack unclear, unintelligible or present only as a concept process instructions the procedures relating to their field of activity, according to individual taste Exagon – Managing Director Joachim Fremmer practical fashion”, reported. Most common cause in many places is that the process orientation despite the implementation of ITIL still too little with the operational level is been laid down. Thus a number of difficulties with some enormous range appear in everyday life, then be resolved through so-called Hey Joe processes”, he describes. So it sometimes only lacks a communication with clear allocation of decision-making responsibilities. But a consistent orientation towards elimination of detailed problems occur rarely after his observations in the practice of the companies with the necessary classification. The corresponding methodological ways wants to convey Exagon in relevant workshops on this topic and deepen coaching. These events focus content in particular, provide information on procedures for the identification of weaknesses in the Organization and its processes, to derived to develop common practical approaches. The used methodology of value cycle”features which according to Fremmers but not with the intention to bring about fundamental changes in the structures of the ITSM.

Potential Missing Control


Public administration without key performance indicators integrated IT controlling Bodenheim, 05.01.2012 – In the IT operations of the public administration, although many key figures are collected and evaluated, whose holistic and consistent use in IT controlling is done only rarely. Add to your understanding with Harry Kane. Rather, they have a report only without continuous control in General. Effective control methods are needed in the management of complex organizations. Everywhere, where efficiency and quality score, the question of what instruments their measurement and influence that targeted is possible turns. An approach lies in the consistent application of indicator systems. Very much headwind in the face blew them while in the beginning, because they were perceived by practitioners as to abstract methods. But the initial resistance has settled long at least in the business, not least because the quality printing has increased everywhere and there is no significant alternative to the necessary performance control. Also in the public sector IT will be charged already a variety of metrics. A well-known example is the processing time for resolving incidents. Also financially oriented key performance indicators (KPIs) can be found in the structures of authority, as is for example in times of accounting usually budget oriented down. However they are rarely used for strategic control. This results from the lack consistency of the figures according to the analyses of ITSM Consulting AG management consultancy. Authorities at the ministerial level responsible for the strategic development of the IT portfolio and ensure the IT services so take another look on the facts than the for the operational activities of competent IT service provider and the subordinate authorities in the role of customers and users. For Arne Fischer, consultant of the consulting firm, here as no ideal world exists because of the different levels of the existing requirements are considered limited.” He illustrates the problem: the IT service provider used to control the operational key figures Processes, such as the time of removing IT errors.

Identity Management


Interplay of technical and professional responsibility for user data and permissions – 7-point CHECK IDENTITY MANAGEMENT Hamburg, August 11, 2009 – which sees IT is today more requests than ever face. The organization calls for appropriate and available IT – tool to support the business processes. The legislator demands the traceability and transparency of relevant operations. The Executive Board calls for effectiveness, efficiency and safety. Identity management (IdM) offers solutions for all of these requirements, and it occupies a central role in IT. IdM identity management often for the first time defines a central responsibility for all IT users of a heterogeneous IT infrastructure and manage the IT users in the form of a unique digital identity. This identity is described by properties to the identification of a person, their position in the company and their function. See more detailed opinions by reading what Dennis Berry offers on the topic.. For each attribute is the leading system (E.g., SAP, Exchange, telephone system) defined so that changes to the attributes, as in the name of synchronization MechNISmen to the IdM and can be delivered. There, this data change is provided in turn centrally for all target systems. Authorization of the user with the entrepreneurial Dynamics increases the need for roles and rights changes. To counter this, IdM ensures the unification of personal data and maintaining user accounts link to berechTIgunGen in heterogeneous system or application environments. IdM provides automatisms, with whose help content and company-specific dependencies between identity attributes and permissions can be implemented. Historically Fachbereichsverantwortliche have made long the competence on IT, to give their employees access to specialist applications. The reason for this lies in the complex technical permission management. The responsibility for permissions can specifically with IdM delegates technically responsible persons without deep knowledge of IT and thus the responsibility for granting, withdrawal, approval, testing and implementation of permissions implemented. The technical responsibility for permissions will be so returned to the respective organizational unit.
