DATA GOVERNANCE TOOL
This metadata management tool allows an organisation to very quickly get all its data under proper management and governance control. The tool is designed to work in the most challenging data environments, e.g. financial services, etc, and the designers have drawn from their experience of leading data management programmes at the world’s largest global banks.
Process; Architector includes a sophisticated semantic-based business glossary, which is linked to business and technical processes, datastores, physical data, issues, data quality rules, and other data assets. Architector has exceptional graphical capabilities that can automatically draw interactive concept models directly from data definitions, as well as complex interactive data lineage diagrams.
The glossary can be synchronised with external RDF/OWL ontologies, and other metadata can be imported and exported for full flexibility.
Result; We have developed a Rich Internet application referred as Data Governance Platform. Metadata and reference data can be manually created or imported by XML or spreadsheet. The system allows data management roles to be associated to the various data assets, and the metadata dashboard provides data managers with comprehensive feedback on the completeness and accuracy of the metadata within their control. The graphical capabilities allow managers to create the views they are interested in, and graphical views can be shared across the organisation. This makes the Lineage Manager a very effective data management communication and collaboration tool.
And because concept models and data lineage diagrams are created from metadata, there is no need to re-draw them whenever the metadata changes. The system handles this automatically.
We included a query engine to allow users to interact with the metadata repository in a very flexible way. And the system monitors and audits the quality of metadata.
Future plans for this product include configurable metrics and dashboards, integrations with other data tools, and additional bridges to external metadata repositories.
COLLABORATION BETWEEN EMPLOYEES DENMARK AND INDIA
Siya Ul Haqu director of "Headfitted Solutions", about the collaboration between Indian and Danish employees from the Danish newsletter "Prosa" 11.6.2012:
"The Danish people want quality and they mean what they say; a yes is yes and a no is no!
Several years of cross-cultural collaboration has taught us that communication is the most important challenge of product developing - this means that we have a fruitful collaboration with focus on:
- Daily face-to-face dialog with matching of expectations, status and clarity of the project and its goals. Focus on the daily goal and documentation of the implemented tasks
- Quality and honesty
- Job-satisfaction and equality - "We work from 9am-5pm, not any longer. But we are here in time and work concentrated - we encourage our employees to spend their time off with their families and be happy. This is not normal in India, but this is something the employees here love about it. Happy employees is the same as better products - if you like your work, you will be happy about your life" says Siya Ul Haqu
Several of our Indian key employees have experience from working in Denmark this also makes it easier to overcome the cross-cultural barriers.
We work with Scrum methods, this is a good way to ensure a high quality - every employee is getting around the same development project several times and experience the performance of the work they have been developing.
Engagement, trust and relations are fundamental for good results - it is our experience that equality is very important - this involves to initiate the employee in the vision of the project and to involve both the physical and the mental workforce. This also means that we must be very clear about the level we want and what we demand. Quality is a very important part of the induction training for new employees."
