Data Governance Audit for Genesis Housing Association



London – February 2013

InforData Consulting and Genesis review current data management processes

InforData Consulting are pleased to announce their latest client, Genesis Housing Association.

Genesis is a member of the g15 and one of the largest housing associations in London and East of England with 33,000 homes under management.

InforData Consulting were approached to review and audit governance and supporting processes in place for managing master data across the organisation. Genesis has master data stored and replicated across a number of core business systems. Governance methodology aims to ensure that master data is managed and maintained within business defined performance criteria.

After review, InforData Consulting recommended several options to improve data management processes to deliver more accurate and controlled information. These recommendations included more stringent data governance, a single data repository and an overall cultural change in approach to data.

Grant Pyper, Information Service Manager commented “InforData were selected from a number of potential providers as they demonstrated a good understanding of our needs. InforData were very flexible and came up with a number of recommendations which have since been incorporated into our governance model.”
