    Asset Inventory Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:


    ABC Company is a leading financial services organization that provides investment banking, asset management, and wealth management services to clients worldwide. With a large and diverse portfolio of clients, the company is heavily reliant on data and information management for making strategic decisions and serving their clients′ needs. However, with multiple departments and systems handling vast amounts of data, the company lacked a centralized data inventory system, resulting in inefficient processes and data duplication.

    In order to address this issue, ABC Company sought the services of our consulting firm to assess their current data management practices and design an enterprise-wide data inventory system, also known as a data asset register, to streamline their data management processes.

    Consulting Methodology:

    Our consulting methodology was based on the principles of data governance and data inventory management. We followed a detailed approach to understand the current data management practices at ABC Company, identify the key data assets and their owners, and establish a centralized data inventory system. The following steps were taken to achieve the desired outcome:

    1. Conducted a baseline assessment: The first step of our methodology involved conducting a thorough assessment of the current data management practices at ABC Company. This included interviews with key stakeholders, reviews of existing documentation, and understanding the data flow within the organization.

    2. Identified key data assets: Based on the baseline assessment, we identified the key data assets that were critical for the organization′s operations and decision-making. These included customer data, financial data, and market data, among others.

    3. Established data governance framework: We worked closely with the senior management at ABC Company to establish a data governance framework. This included defining roles and responsibilities for data management, establishing policies and procedures for data handling, and creating a data quality framework.

    4. Developed a data inventory system: Using the identified data assets, we designed a central data inventory system that would serve as a repository for all the key data assets. This included data dictionaries, meta-data, and data lineage to provide a complete view of the data assets.


    Our consulting engagement resulted in the following deliverables for ABC Company:

    1. Data governance framework document: This document outlined the roles and responsibilities for data management, along with policies and procedures for data handling.

    2. Data inventory system: A centralized data inventory system was implemented to store and manage all the key data assets. This system included data dictionaries, meta-data, and data lineage to provide a complete view of data assets.

    3. Data quality framework: To ensure the accuracy and completeness of data, a data quality framework was designed and implemented.

    4. Training and awareness sessions: We conducted training and awareness sessions for key stakeholders to help them understand the importance of data governance and data inventory management

    Implementation Challenges:

    The implementation of a centralized, enterprise-wide data inventory system at ABC Company presented several challenges, including resistance to change, lack of data ownership, and siloed data management practices. To address these challenges, our consulting team worked closely with the senior management and key stakeholders to secure their buy-in and involvement in the project. We also emphasized the benefits of having a centralized data inventory system, such as improved data quality and efficiency.


    To measure the success of the project, we defined the following KPIs for ABC Company:

    1. Data quality: The accuracy and completeness of the data were measured regularly using data quality metrics.

    2. Data governance adherence: The number of policy violations and data compliance issues were tracked to ensure adherence to the data governance framework.

    3. Data duplication: The instances of data duplication were monitored and reduced significantly after the implementation of the data inventory system.

    Management Considerations:

    The implementation of an enterprise-wide data inventory system has brought significant changes to the data management practices at ABC Company. It has enabled the organization to have a centralized view of data assets, improved data quality, and streamlined processes. However, to ensure the sustainability of the system, the following management considerations are essential:

    1. Regular data governance reviews: Regular reviews of the data governance framework and policies should be conducted to ensure its effectiveness and relevance.

    2. Data stewardship: The organization should designate a team or individual responsible for managing and maintaining the data inventory system.

    3. Ongoing training and awareness: To ensure the success of the system, ongoing training and awareness programs need to be conducted to educate employees about the importance of data governance and data inventory management.


    The implementation of a centralized, enterprise-wide data inventory system has brought significant improvements to the data management practices at ABC Company. This has enabled the organization to have a holistic view of their data assets and make informed decisions based on accurate and up-to-date information. Our consulting engagement has not only resulted in improved efficiency and data quality but also established a strong foundation for future data management initiatives at ABC Company.
