Community of Interest Data Interoperability Workshop

The Data Interoperability Workshop can be configured to serve a specific Community Of Interest. Such communities would include all functional staff and supporting IT staff who are the subject matter experts trying to consolidate for example, a collection of inventory and distribution systems, human resource systems, sales and marketing systems, and the like..

The community of interest data interoperability workshop is a structured combination of consulting, training, and long-term follow-up. When your organization is embarking on a process of consolidating groups of systems, a necessary, and very critical first step is to create a shared data architecture that all the consolidated systems use. Creating such a shared data architecture is the goal of the Data Interoperability Workshop.

Whitemarsh recommends that the workshop is surrounded with both pre and post activities that greatly increase the probability that a consolidation effort will succeed. These additional activities are items 1, 2, 4, and 5 in the following table.  A price breakdown of the DIW-COI Workshop is available on request from Whitemarsh.
