The solution approach employs standards, processes, procedures, and a structured framework for identifying the status of data, where it is in the maturity process, what the steps are to prevent predictably bad outcomes, and how cost savings and efficiencies of scale through assertive data management techniques leverage data assets most effectively.

The topics and methods include treatment and consideration for administrative data, legal data, and financial data as well as technical data. Identification of systems of record and archives must include mappings for all of this varied data, as well.

The objective is an integrated solution that maps data from specialized systems, but identifies its maturity for use down the lifecycle, regardless of stovepiped or special data systems – to include records management data flagging and recovery.
