Our data governance consulting services are built on the premise that real-time data is a critical strategic asset (in the same way as financial data). Our consultants recommend business processes and practices to ensure the quality and availability of real-time data so that it can be relied on by your staff and software applications for measuring operating performance, and intelligently associated with assets to assure performance improvement.
The importance of our data governance consulting services
Reliable process data, current and historical, is critical to day-to-day plant operations and stewardship.
Adoption of our data governance processes ensures that source data and its metadata accurately propagate from source (e.g. field instruments) through the various levels of control and manufacturing execution system hierarchy (e.g. SCADA, DCS and historians).
Data can be confidently relied upon for operations analysis, decision-making and financial systems, with false, invalid, missing and inaccurate information having been eliminated. Changes at any stage are synchronized throughout the data chain, and auditable records of who made changes (and why) are kept to manage the data lifecycle.
