DATA HEALTH X FAQs

The topic of Data Health can be somewhat confusing and open to misinterpretation. We've found that the same questions keep popping up so here are the answers to a few of the most common ones.

Data reporting is the process of collecting and converting raw data into meaningful information via an easily understandable format. Organisations use data reporting to inform and underpin strategic decision-making as it can be used to answer many questions about an organisation's productivity and weaknesses.

Data provides insights into measuring the progress of every part of an organisation. These insights inform day-to-day changes all the way up to strategic shifts. It highlights which areas need more help and attention and which are getting too much. It’s the ultimate way to level the running of an organisation at any size.

Just like going to the doctor, a data health check is periodically checking in on your data to test that everything is in working order. It looks at the quality, how it’s being used and what it can tell you about where to go next. Again, as with a doctor, it’s best to catch health issues before they have an impact. This is the same with data health. Using data reporting tools like Data Health X helps organisations to keep the wider organisation healthy by first looking at the data that underpins it all.

If erroneous data enters an organisation's database, it can have physical consequences, either financial, reputational, or legal. Managing Data quality is an essential task for modern enterprises. Here are five ways to measure the quality of your data and mitigate data errors:

• Historical error rates
• Run a duplicate check using Ditto
• Determine which data isn’t being used anymore, this could be wasting storage
• Time-to-value data calculations
• Review data collection techniques- is there enough governance?

Potential data duplicates in a system can start small but have large impacts. Not only can this create errors which lead to payments being made twice, products being misassembled or customers not getting what they expect. It can also be a waste of storage in an age where lean data is essential to competitive advantage.

There are three ways to check for duplicates in master data:

• Use the duplicate check function and manually select in S/4HANA
• Manually check through data and remove duplicates. This is time-consuming and monotonous.
• Use a duplicate check tool like Ditto to identify all duplicates in one automated go. Approve removals and move on to the next task.
