Asset-Related Documents – What are they and how they affect data integrity.

Data Integrity.

In multiple industries, asset-related documents are the ecosystem of an organization. There is connectivity within and between these asset-related documents which makes them “dynamic.” Due to this connectivity, a document’s intent can change due to another dynamically connected document. When an organization’s system of record is inserting data obtained from dynamically connected documents, the chances of data integrity issues and exposure to risk are extremely high.

The Need for Data Integrity in the Wireless Industry!

Over the past two decades, we have seen reports in various business journals discussing how companies are not realizing the value of their acquisitions. This seems to be the case whether the deal driver is to increase market share, acquire technology or in the case of the wireless industry acquire “footprint resulting in a loss of millions of dollars.

Ironically even though the deal drivers are true, I would suggest that the ultimate deal driver are Asset Related Documents the information, or data contained within them. Lack of Data Integrity in any of these documents can have catastrophic consequences to an organization’s bottom line.
