“Data to match the business velocity and accelerate the organization’s evolution towards Real-Time Enterprise!”
The presentation is focused on the Integrated Data Management (IDM) initiative within Microsoft IT. The purpose of IDM is to enable a fast and consistent view of Microsoft core data across businesses. In fact, Microsoft business groups and related processes are evolving towards real-time processes, therefore Microsoft IT should ensure that high-quality data trusted with confidence can be delivered on time to meet critical business objectives. As key first step towards the real-time enterprise, Microsoft IT selected the Data Management Maturity Model to assess the maturity level of Microsoft IT. The maturity assessment was conducted working closely with the CMMI Institute appraisers. The assessment results uncovered multiple areas of strength in the organization. The strategy to achieve higher levels of maturity and fill in the gaps began with building on Microsoft existing strengths, and areas of excellence.

What You Will Learn: 

The Capability Enablement Plan was developed to define the method to improve the maturity of data management in Microsoft IT. Data Management Strategy & Governance, and Data Quality are areas of focus. While achieving significant organization-wide change is an evolutionary process, 3 key points from the IDM work are :

  • Data Management is raising as a Pillar of organization effectiveness, DMM is a key tool to accelerate organization’s maturity
  • Include Data Management specific functionality in your initiatives
  • Build on Strengths !
