MetaGovernance Audiences

Bundled or Customized?

MetaGovernance offers fixed bid bundled services which combines software, framework, and professional services at a fixed rate within a defined scope and time frame.  For services that are not as easily defined up-front, MetaGovernance can customize a program to meet your needs.

Bundled Services

MetaGovernance provides a unique combination of software solutions, a proven implementation framework, and an experienced professional services team to meet your information governance needs.  To reduce your risks and control your up-front costs, we offer the following fixed price bundled services:

No Barriers Starter Program

Access to a fully functional instance of InfoGovTM, our cloud-based information governance software, for a two-month period, plus software support, and five hours of one on one professional services (phone and web-based) during the starter period.  The only cost is a small "earnest money" fee to make sure you are serious.   Software can then be licensed based on your requirements at a discounted rate or your data can be extracted into flat files at the end of the service period.

Information Governance QuickStart Program

Go from "Zero to 60" by setting up  your organizations Information Governance Architecture Definition for a predefined subject area domain in less than 3 months at a fixed price.  The program includes set up and access to InfoGov, the company's premiere information governance software solution, professional services, and use of the MetaGovernance Framework to complete the project.  Project is scoped based on one or more pre-defined subject areas.

InfoGov will be used for free for the length of the engagement and for a period of 3 months after the engagement.  After three months the client will be charged for InfoGov or all data will be provided to the client in electronic format.

Reconciliation Controls QuickStart Program

After the successful implementation of a QuickStart Program, No Barriers Program, or customized  approach, the client has all the information they will need to set up reconciliation controls that provides evidence of data accuracy.  Our InfoCheckTM software works with InfoGov to leverage the governance architecture metadata to establish a set of reconciliation controls.  The controls compare data objects at the data base, application, or reporting layer without the need for programming. A fixed price is established based on the data types and number of controls to be implemented.

InfoCheck will be set up and used for free for the length of the engagement and for a period of 3 months after the engagement.  A valid license for InfoGov is also required.  After three months the client will be charged for InfoCheck or all data will be provided to the client in electronic format.

Customized Services

Where are you on your data or Information Governance journey?  What is your key business driver?  MetaGovernance offers customized and targeted solutions utilizing our unique combination of software, framework, and expertise based on the stage in your journey, the key business drivers for your organization, and your vision of your organization's future state when you meet your objectives.

Some examples that we have worked through with clients include:

Governance Architecture Definition

This program will focus on a particular subject area domain from the MetaGovernance governance architecture perspective where the scope can not be clearly defined up-front or the scope is large enough that a QuickStart program is not a good fit.

Leveraging MetaGovernance’s InfoGov software, the engagement focuses on defining the current state information governance architecture of the organization within the particular subject area domain where issues have been identified.

This analysis will give the client a true and detailed picture of their current state and open the opportunities for effective remediation.

InfoGov will be used for free for the length of the engagement and for a period of 3 months after the engagement.  After three months the client will be charged for InfoGov or all data will be provided to the client in electronic format.

Planning and Assessments

When you are not sure where to begin your information governance journey, we can employ elements of the MetaGovernance Framework to determine next steps.  These include our comprehensive planning methodology; NTTF (Navigation to the Future) or our maturity assessment process using predefined templates.

Business Intelligence

MetGovernance has extensive experience in data warehouse design and implementation, business intelligence deployment, and reporting solutions. Through this experience MetaGovernance has developed an extensive financial data model that is easily adaptable to individual company needs.

MetGovernance has also been called in on numerous occasions to remediate broken data warehouse initiatives.  Often, an effective information governance program is part of that remediation.

Regulatory and Audit Issues

MetaGovernance is often called in to assist remediating regulatory and audit findings related to information and data management.  Solutions have included

  • Implementation of InfoStore software which was specifically designed to remediate issues with uncontrolled data sources used for reporting.
  • Implementation of the Reconciliation Control Framework using  InfoCheck to provide appropriate automated data level controls.
