Information management and analytics technology

As technology makes information easier to create and collect, its volume grows, and effective management and analysis become increasingly critical.

Organizations that can access on-demand information, trust its accuracy and turn it into strategic insight can achieve superior outcomes and gain a real competitive advantage.

Enterprise data management

Enterprise data management (EDM) is a popular solution for companies dealing with data reliability issues, but many are only addressing the symptoms of bad data instead of the sources, which can create a cascade of systemic headaches. A comprehensive EDM solution includes profiling, cleansing and monitoring to improve data quality; metadata (data about data) to ensure consistent definitions and usage; data governance to provide oversight and standards enforcement; and retention and security to support accessible and secure data.

Our enterprise data management services include:

  • Master data definition and harmonization
  • Designing and deploying master data management solutions
  • Data profiling, cleansing and monitoring
  • Metadata management
  • Data archival, retrieval and security

  • Data standards, policies and procedures

Enterprise content management and web channel solutions

Cloud computing, mobile technologies, social media, tablets, phones and laptops are introducing a significant amount of unstructured content into the corporate data storage mix.
