The People Data Imperative 1 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
HIGHLIGHTS The People Data Imperative The most effective business decisions are based on having accurate people data. Instead, company’s data is most likely across locations, departments, and divisions, having been sliced and diced by mergers and acquisitions, parsed by local users, and buffeted by periodic expansions and contractions The goal of any organization is to have the right people in the right place at the right time, and be able to account for the cost. But that goal is elusive without people data standards that have been agreed to by HR, IT, and the enterprise 2 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
The basis of data simplicity To address people data problems, you need to simplify and streamline your body of information to create a ‘system of record’ that is integrated throughout the organization and kept up to date. Develop Consistent Standards Having global definitions for key data elements is a baseline requirement for information transparency. Job titles, for example, must mean the same thing across divisions and geographies. Address the Need for Flexibility Define the boundaries between global and local data in the organization and patrol the border for local reporting needs. Eliminate Data Duplication Each data field in the people data should have a clear and consistent meaning and represent a single state or event. Structured codes should be avoided. Provide all users with some automated integration 3 Core systems must be linked to provide reliable people data to all users. HR systems, for instance, must be automatically integrated with other key systems such as payroll. © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
