How we help

Asset Information Strategy
  • An organisation may currently have no overarching Asset Information Strategy and has become aware it needs one to ensure assets deliver value for customers and the community.
  • An Asset Information Strategy may already exist but have low visibility and not be effective.
  • A change in the business may be a trigger to review and revise the existing asset information strategy to deliver on new goals and expectations.
  • The organisation’s Asset Information Strategy may not be delivering on the outcomes needed by the business and as a result is seeking a review of its effectiveness.

Outputs of this work
  • An Asset Information Strategy that supports an organisation’s goals.
  • A report on the current Asset Information Strategy compared with business objectives and performance, suggested improvements to the Asset Information Strategy or its implementation.
  • An Asset Information Strategy implementation or improvement plan  including how benefits realisation will be measured.
Data Quality Frameworks
  • An organisation may be implementing a technology solution to deliver new capabilities but is being hindered by the quality of data. 
  • An incident may highlight worrying gaps or errors in data and some level of reassurance has been requested by the executive team or the board.
  • A strategic project may be being undertaken and it is understood that having the right data of suitable quality is a key dependency for the project. Therefore a workstream of the project is to identify information requirements and implement automated data quality checks to identify any gaps in the data.
Outputs of this work
  • A data assurance report, reporting on any gaps between data requirements and the current state of data, along with recommend remedial work required
  • Guidelines, processes and role definitions for a data quality framework which provides visibility of gaps in data quality, the business impact of those gaps and facilitates the initiation of actions to remedy gaps.
Education
  • An organisation may want to lift its understanding of asset information risks and opportunities to improve asset management outcomes.
  • This may be a first step on a journey to develop a roadmap to improved asset information.
  • An organisation may have identified a specific gap in asset information processes such as data quality or governance and require targetted training.
Outputs of this work
  • An improved understanding of asset information risks and opportunities for staff working with asset information.
  • A common understanding of foundational concepts that form the basis of a business case for improving asset information.
