Jumpstart your Data Quality programs with the SAP Information Steward Accelerator by BackOffice Associates. Watch this short video describing how the SAP Information Steward Accelerator by BackOffice Associates saves time and effort in finding, monitoring and solving data errors for SAP business users and data stewards.

Data stewards are responsible for keeping business data clean and error-free. Each and every data quality problem hurts an organization's bottom line. But how do data stewards who are responsible for finding problems, find solutions? 

Tracking down each individual responsible for each error, and then working with IT to create reports on the causes of each error is extremely time-consuming. Additionally, staying on top of each individual until they collectively determine fixes for the errors, via numerous spreadsheets, is a process that lacks trace-ability and accountability.  And these data updates in the system cause repetitive work.

By the time these errors are fixed and entered into the ERP system, these data quality issues have continued to cost your organization money. However, this process can be made much more simple with SAP Information Steward and the SAP Information Steward Accelerator by BackOffice Associates.  

When data quality errors are identified by SAP Information Steward, notifications regarding those data errors are sent from the SAP Information Steward Accelerator by BackOffice Associates to the right people with all the information required to take action and fix the data issue.  Benefits of this new process include: 

  • Built-in workflows to track approvals
  • Ability for users to easily update data quality rules in SAP Information Steward
  • Easy-to-use spreadsheets allow Data Stewards to quickly enter corrected data back into the ERP system 

The SAP Information Steward Accelerator by BackOffice Associates fully documents every change made within the ERP system.  These streamlined, compliant processes can be implemented in less than day, proving that it pays to speed up data quality processes.
