Data Sharing in Public Bodies
Information that flows between or within departments with different computer systems can be imported into Solidatus in minutes, breaking down silos and enabling a coherent picture of the exchange of data whilst retaining privacy protocols. Additionally, Solidatus’ glossary removes the barrier of different nomenclature between departments.
TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY
Departments can enrich their data attributes with metadata and properties to increase data understanding and insight to help drive their management information.
TRANSFORMATION / CHANGE MANAGEMENT
By easily creating a new version of a Solidatus model without affecting the original, changes can be made that reveal the impact of planned change on data in other parts of the model, thereby exposing the full impact if that change is made.
Metadata is data about data – it gives the who, what, where, why, when and how of data. Modelling can expose potential gaps in a supply chain – be it people, equipment or process, allowing for forward planning to prevent or mitigate against a previously unrecognised shortfall.
Data lineage maps the flow of data within an organisation, allowing for full transparency on how it is used. Solidatus allows organisations to adhere to all seven GDPR principles with a GDPR modelling tool, mapping data requirements against data management capabilities and onto their people, processes and data to show compliance.
Correctly catalogued data can be enriched with assigned ownership and values to identify data quality issues. Resolving these issues makes the underlying data more accurate and reliable.
