IM Strategy Definition

Careful evaluation of the reasons behind the failures of IM implementations reveal lack of corporate vision and poorly-defined mandate results in building the IM solutions. Poorly-defined data integration and reporting strategies result in the use of poorly-defined KPIs in driving the reporting.

The methodology that Kumaran uses is two-phased:

  • The current state of the organization vis- a – vis the intended state is assessed and the business readiness and gaps are identified. Based on these facts an IM roadmap is created. Once the corporate consensus is arrived at regarding the IM roadmap, the IM strategy is devised based on Kumaran’s time-tested IM frameworks.
  • As a prelude to the assessment exercise, governance and stewardship councils are established within the organization. Governance councils help to identify the gaps within organization; they also govern the implementation of the IM solution. Stewardship councils provide the corporate steer and define and manage the various standards, for example, MDM Stewardship.

IM Architecture & Design

New-age IM mantra is clear: Be simpler and more accessible! The added challenge for most organizations is how to close the business loop. The foundation to building such an IM solution is an architecture that is flexible, yet scalable and resilient and of course, future proof.
