The roadmap designed by RevGen Partners included recommendations to:
- Develop business intelligence capabilities: A plan was developed to create a centralized, enterprise-wide BI environment where both internal and external customers could access information across products in a timely and dependable manner.
- Simplify enterprise data architecture: The roadmap proposed a flexible, open and extensible master data model with data objects, hierarchies and business rules defined consistently across the organization. This data model eliminated overlapping data and data silos to provide a single version of truth and an aggregated view of information across systems and transactions.
- Decrease costs: We suggested the definition and implementation of data archiving, storage and retention policies, as well as information architecture and development standards. Additionally, the roadmap outlined goals to enforce the decommissioning of legacy products and systems. These plan objectives helped to reduce the avoidable storage and maintenance costs of duplicate data and unnecessary processes.
