This Case Study focuses on a highly successful data lineage project between ASG Software Solutions and a major global financial institution. The initial project which began in 2011 with the primary goal of achieving greater control, awareness, and ownership over the institution’s data assets due to new regulatory and federal audit controls. As the project progressed and the positive relationship between ASG and the Bank deepened, all stakeholders involved began to see much broader potential for the entire project than originally envisioned.
The Case Study discusses:
The original drivers and eventual expansion of the entire project, with the creation of a 36-month roadmap
Three major Proof of Concept trials in both mainframe and distributed-environments that demonstrated the advantages of ASG’s Software Solution over competitors
The numerous benefits that ASG’s Solution provided for financial institution including and 80-fold savings in work hours alone (the initial projected cost savings were extensive).
The creation of a mature Data Portal for both technical and non-technical users to access, identify, and use the data
How the entire project has allowed the Bank to ensure greater accountability and governance of all data assets involved; and,
The proposed expansion of the project into many more areas of the Bank’s data systems
