Consulting Assessment Services
Assess, Analyze, Validate, and Manage.
Genesis provides consultants who are well trained to assess your current state of your infrastructure and processes and suggest improvements via best practices in ITIL based IT Service Management.Some Consulting Assessment Examples include:
Data Management Strategy
Genesis consultants assist clients to review or develop their Data Management Strategy. We conduct information gathering and synthesize the results of their data organization strategy and align their Data Management Strategy with their overall business strategy.
Independent Validation & Verification (IV&V)
Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) is the quality control process of checking that a product, service, or system meets specifications and that it fulfills its intended purpose. These are critical components of a quality management system such as ISO 9000. For these types of engagements, Genesis performs as an “independent” party thus ensuring the validation is performed by a neutral third party.
Data Management Service Level Definition
Genesis has the experience, processes and skills to assist clients in developing service levels for their Data Management systems. This is a critical and important task that can be performed before, during, or after a data management project such as a Data Warehouse or data base consolidation project.
Genesis offers many services related to data standards such as: evaluation and assessment of current standards, recommend new data standards, evaluate specific project standards or provide consultants as data governance administrators. Genesis has experience implementing approved data standards from various sources.
Genesis consultants are well versed in numerous standards from a number of standards bodies. A Data Management best practice is to deploy data standards such as those published by Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) (http://itl.nist.gov/fipspubs/), International Organization for Standardization (www.iso.org/), US Postal Service (www.usps.com), and World Health Organization (WHO) ICD Codes, etc. During the data modeling design phase, appropriate standards are identified and implemented. The standard is then carried into the transformation rules during data integration. These standards are important for consistency in reporting; and are sometimes required in state and Federal reporting for HR such as the Race and Ethnicity reporting requirements.
Master Data Management Design
Genesis offers services for the design, development and implementation of Master Data Management. Our consulting services focus on the requirements gathering, readiness (organizational and technical) analysis and architectural design. Genesis has extensive experience in large organizations with a key service within the design service which is consolidated data modeling. It is becoming increasingly important to organizations that their reference data is consistent and controlled in the ongoing maintenance and application use. The task sequence in MDM design is: source identification, data collection, data transformation, normalization, rule administration, error detection and correction, data consolidation, data storage, data distribution, and data governance.
