How to start with Kano MDM

MDM is a long-term commitment, so organizations must use a best-of-breed solution that not just supports their main data domains, but any number of data domains. Kano MDM is just that kind of solution. Kanosoftware offers PoCs and strives to organize ideal conditions for easy impemеntation.

We have developed a unique implementation model for Kano MDM, which minimizes project risks and ensures customers’ success. The main recommendation is to start with a pilot project, which automates the data stewardship processes of several domains and integration with several information systems. A pilot project can be a solid foundation for the full-scale implementation project.

During Kano MDM implementation, Kansoftware team and our partners provide the training for the customer’s experts, which allows us to solve or even prevent a significant part of the master data management issues and application integration questions by customers’ own efforts. Of course, we provide maintenance services to our customers that include technical assistance and software updates.

Kano MDM can support a variety of further initiatives in Master Data Management.

Maintenance

Discovery

 

Project requirements are analyzed and implementation specifications prepared during this phase. We provide a questionnaire that can be a starting point of the discovery stage.
Usually, we implement PoC before signing a contract with a customer.

Launch

 

With the contract signed we start the phase of preparing for implementation. We help your organization to assemble the best project team, develop an implementation plan, verify business processes, collect all data and information about APIs.
During this phase, DEV/TEST/PROD infrastructure is set up and configured for automatic solution delivery.

Configuration

 

We configure catalogs and security settings, visual representation of the data, data stewardship processes, data quality rules using Kano MDM UI tools.
Data migration and cleansing also take place during this step. Initial data is loaded from existing data sources and cleansed.

Integration

 

Kano MDM has a built-in standard API based on Web-/REST-services to integrate with external applications. If the standard API is used, no development effort is required on the Kano MDM side to connect to external systems. A partner or customer has to connect applications using this API.

Documentation

 

Project-related configuration documentation and Kano MDM Administration guide are provided to a customer.

Training

 

Kanosoftware delivers on-site or online training to a customer project team.

Test & Go-live

 

Kano MDM configuration passes functional and integration tests. The Kanosoftware team takes part in user acceptance tests.
We help a customer project team in transition from training and testing to real use.

Maintenance

 

Kanosoftware will provide remote support services via email, issue tracker, and phone to authorized specialists of the partner or customer.

Maintenance includes software updates (new releases, and bug fixes) provided to the customer.
