Information Management Methodology – a holistic approach to manage and exploit information as a corporate asset
Platon A/S, a Scandinavian based independent consulting company specializing exclusively in Information Management, presents an Information Management methodology that demonstrates a holistic approach to manage and exploit information as a corporate asset. The methodology covers different aspects of working with information as an enterprise resource, including Business usage, architectures, technologies, governance, organization, program management and also daily operations. Originally intended for internal use, the methodologies have now reached a level where customers are purchasing them from Plato to drive their own initiatives.
The methodologies focus on both the long-term perspective through an Information Management Program and the short-term wins through individual solution projects. Broadly the they cover the disciplines of Master Data Management, Meta Data Management, Business Intelligence and Data Integration.
Currently the methodology consists of 72 best practice guidelines, 19 techniques, and 69 deliverables including templates as well as a complete gallery of roles required for running a full Information Management Program. You can find additional information at http://www.platon.net
Kjeel Wittmaack is the head of Knowledge & IT Department with responsibility for capturing, developing, structuring and sharing knowledge on Information Management. Platon’s Information Management Knowledge is what drives the business and the company is focussed around this one product. Hence managing this knowledge is and has always been a key issue for Plato’s practices. It is this vast resource of knowledge that Kjeel will share with IRMAC members.
