The Data Excellence Management System© (DEMS) is a complete integrated cloud-based system (internal or external) that enables organizations to accelerate the maximization of the business value of organization’ strategies and transactions while minimizing operational costs. It provides a factual value-driven collaboration that engages end-users from all levels in the ultimate value creation.
DEMS fits the maturity of your organization functions and resources. It establishes accountability and responsibility throughout the organizational structure and links the data assets to the value flows to predicatively govern business strategies.
The Business Excellence Requirements Catalog is a centralized repository that defines and stores the Business Excellence Requirements to help you reach your business objectives.
The Business Excellence Requirements are the backbones of the Data Excellence Framework and the Data Excellence Management System methodologies. They are the knowledge of the organization and the starting point of the governance community.
It is through the Business Excellence Requirements that business and data are linked and this is also through them that the value of the data will be calculated.
For each Business Excellence Requirement you will have the possibility to define its full ecosystem including the related data attributes, the governance dimensions involved, the business object impacted and any other business dimension involved (information systems, business processes, …)
To fit with your expectations, the meta-model of the Business Excellence Requirements is fully configurable as Data Excellence Management System integrates workflow capabilities to manage Business Excellence Requirements life-cycle. It includes a graphical navigation with an intuitive search engine.
The Business Excellence Requirements Catalog is automatically linked with the Business Semantic Glossary that automatically generates the contextualized definition of the business terms used in the description of the Business Excellence Requirements.
The Business Semantic Glossary allows to store in a centralized repository all the details about the terminology used across your organization in an easy and pragmatic way. It helps you to capture business and data definitions per contexts and provide full stewardship capabilities to identify stewards and accountables.
The Business Semantic Glossary is automatically linked to the Business Excellence Requirements Catalog to provide transparency into definitions, synonyms, acronyms, related terms… which are important for business understanding.
The graphical navigation of the Business Semantic Glossary allows to understand business lineage of the data.
DEMS helps to establish meaningful governance by providing flexible and configurable governance roles and by allowing stewardship assignment at many levels (Business Objectives, Business Excellence Requirements, Business Contexts and Contexts of the Business Semantic Glossary). Based on your roles and responsibilities DEMS will automatically build your governance community and functionalities to manage and interact with it across the entire system.
Through the embedded ticketing system, people who are responsible for maintaining the data assets and people who are using them can interact and create tasks for each other to collaborate and experience sharing around the organization’s data.
DEMS cockpits come with standard reports and dashboard capabilities based on your context and your roles to stay connected to your data.
At every level, Data Excellence Index (DEI) and Key Value Indicators (KVI) are automatically calculated. In the contextual cockpits, data can be aggregated by various dimensions such as business processes, Data Excellence dimensions, information systems, geographical entities, business domain, etc… for a meaningful and efficient governance of your organization.
In the cockpit of your stewardship network, you will have the possibility to follow people from your governance community and to leverage our extensive collaboration capabilities to gain knowledge on your data.
For a non-invasive approach, you can subscribe to receive alerts to be pro-actively notified with all updates of your cockpits or when your indicators go beyond your pre-defined thresholds.
DEMS Agent bridges the Business Excellence Requirements with the information systems by combining both business and technical metadata. It can combine many different technical metadata structures from various databases, so, users can build their own connectors directly into the connection repository.
The Business Excellence Requirements Catalog of DEMS Agent is fully synchronized with the one from DEMS and for an easy definition of the Business Excellence Requirements technical logic, wizards are made available to users. For the Business Excellence Requirements requiring data deduplication, DEMS Agent includes a specific library with a dedicated definition wizard.
The communication between DEMS and DEMS Agent is designed to support both in the cloud and on premise implementation using an encrypted communication channel. In the case of distributed information systems, multiple agents can be deployed, in parallel, for a consolidation into a single instance of DEMS.
To assess data in real time, DEMS Agent provides a simple web service API using the Business Excellence Requirements’logic.
