Topic:

Resolving the Communication Conundrum - How structured business term definitions can save your business thousands

Most of us have witnessed BI project failure that could not be satisfactorily explained or resolved, even after thousands of dollars have been poured into the project and the attempts to fix it. Research shows that a major cause of this is poor business term definition.


Today’s large organisations often have a complex diversity of language use. There’s a growing acknowledgement that a single corporate glossary is of value, but effort is rarely given to ensuring the quality of the glossary’s content.


The result is a glossary that is unreliable, misleading or unused. And that means organisations continue to struggle with reports, figures and dashboards produced from incorrect formulas and data sources – BI project failure.


It’s all resolvable with quality business term definition.


This presentation will give an introduction to the Intralign Structured Definition Writing Method, which involves simple, structured phrases to ensure a consistency of quality and accuracy, easy validation and produces the most succinct definitions possible.


We’ll also be looking at how a truly effective glossary delivers visibility on the relationship terms have to each other and how terms are used in information artefacts such as reports, dashboards, documents, data sets etc.
