How often have you heard the users who are complaining that the system does not work? If you investigate, you will find that an important part of the data does not exist, and the whole process by could. This is a more frequently occur. many times the system gets the blame for what is a data problem.
How can you fix this? The answer is multi-faceted: with four main steps.
Make sure, there is an owner for the data, someone who takes responsibility for the completeness, consistency, compliance and accuracy of the data.Make sure that it is clear, what are the standards and business rules, that to comply with the data. Make sure the people who know the data in that what is required of you.As far as practicable, you choose to enforce the system these standards and rules at the time of data entry.Set the appropriate monitoring to identify reporting issues with the data and then take the actions required to resolve the issue and prevent the problems from occurring again.
Does not sound easy, right? However, as people know it is not easy and requires dedicated to people that data are correct. Is part of the answer, so that data has its own stream in the ERP implementation and it is handled by people, the experts are in data. You need to understand data migration, data quality and how the data in the new ERP system.
