Scale and Transform your Data Governance programs to enterprise-level services via our ASP Factory Packages.
ASP Factory Solutions
Provides DG Service-specific, end-to-end optimized process flows, templates, guides (business case, financial, etc.), dashboards/reports, and plans (project plan, org, capacity plan, etc.) to successfully implement our standard factory solution.
Provides ASP's best practice toolset to ensure corporate data retention policies are properly defined, documented, and efficiently implemented at both a corporate and application level. It also includes ongoing management of the policies to ensure they are kept current with the ever-changing corporate, industry, and regulatory landscape both domestically and internationally. This is critical for companies looking to develop their own retention policies or mature their existing policy infrastructure and increase application adoption.
Provides optimized processes, best practices, and dashboards to ensure the implemented factory service is compliant with existing corporate policies. Policy focus will be on corporate data retention, security, and legal holds. Result will be a DG service with transparent compliancy throughout the year.
Provides ASP's best practices toolset to identify, classify, and secure SPI, PCI data in the archive environment (at rest, at view, and in transit), review user access at all levels (user, os, db), review process and compliance around security patching (OS/DB), and recommend best of breed encryption/masking tools. It will address data security exposures in the source system as well.
ASP Factory Packages
Confidently rationalize your applications efficiently after a major merger/acquisition, in preparation for a large-scale enterprise re-architecture or business process reengineering initiative. ASP provides the best practices toolset and methodology to quickly categorize each application to determine not only where its data lands in the information lifecycle but which corresponding data governance approach is most appropriate.
KEY BENEFITS FROM APPLICATION RATIONALIZATION
- Simplify technology standards and therefore simplify technology adherence - Diverse applications with diverse technology platforms only leads to increased costs and lack of a unified standard. Rationalizing your existing and future applications to a common set of technology standards will go a long way in addressing this situation.
- Eliminate redundancy - Utilizing ASP's toolset and methodologies allows companies to easily identify applications that perform similar or identical functions in different areas of the organization.
- Eliminate unnecessary or wasted investments - ASP's app rationalization process evaluates all applications through a lens that focuses on the application's strategic value against current and future organization's objectives. Why continue to invest in an application that is divergent from these objectives?
- Eliminate 'desupport' situations - One of the key benefits from app rationalization is the elimination of desupport situations. App rationalization will quickly identify the risk exposure of older applications and their vendors and execute a plan to eliminate those applications where any outage may lead to catastrophic data loss.
- Redirect future investments that support growth of the future, not the past - App rationalization analysis will certainly identify huge opportunities for cost savings and therefore opportunities to redirect those savings toward investments that provide future strategic value to the business.
- Dramatically reduce training and support requirements - Each application will require some level of vendor-specific support from both your staff as well as the vendor's. This support costs money and can be greatly reduced when BOTH the number of applications and their vendors are reduced.
