2. Establish the right procedures to deliver Good Data
Every project goes through integration test (IT<X>) cycles, user acceptance (UA)mock cutover, final cutover and go-live—mid-year or year-end. Executing thesecycles using converted data is seldom the norm, for reasons like:
Core application functionality and RICEFW testing can be done with sample data
Data is not deemed a predecessor to IT cycles due to time and resource constraints
•Unavailability of converted data for the IT cycle as data conversion wasn’t given theimportance that it should have
Implement Comprehensive Validation processes
Implement the Extract, Transform, Validate – pre-load, Load and Validate – postload (ETVLV) routine for data conversion. Engage the Business Data Owners incomprehensive validation of data, before and after conversion/loading.
