Currently in Beta Testing, dspCloud to Offer Unprecedented Access to Data Lifecycle Guidance, Actionable Business Process Analytics and Industry KPIs to Accelerate Development of Business-ready Data
ORLANDO, Fla. – June 3, 2014
Building on decades of leadership and expertise in delivering premier data migration and information governance solutions to the Fortune 1000, BackOffice Associates today previewed dspCloud. A market-first, content-rich web portal, dspCloud is expected to accelerate time-to-value and improve visibility for data migration, data quality and information governance initiatives. dspCloud will provide access to a rich repository of data quality analytics, reports, legacy system information and industry business content that can reduce project times by as much as 80 percent. The new cloud-based solution, which is currently in beta testing, is scheduled to be generally available this fall. Attendees of SAPPHIRE® NOW and the ASUG Annual Conference will be provided a first-hand demo of the solution.
“We’ve captured nearly two decades of data quality and information governance expertise in dspCloud, giving data stewards and business users access to rich detail that reduces the amount of time normally required to complete data-intensive projects,” said Rex Ahlstrom, chief strategy officer at BackOffice Associates. “We believe dspCloud will revolutionize data stewardship for complex data environments and dramatically accelerate project success with extensive business and process knowledge, analytics and issue remediation guidance.”
BackOffice’s experience with hundreds of source systems and 1,200+ data projects has been translated into robust content libraries within dspCloud. The new solution will offer enterprises the ability to collaborate on complex data projects and access solution content for their industry or line of business. It provides detailed guidance on industry-specific data quality benchmarking, best practices, root cause analysis and metrics reporting on data trends, such as areas that cause the most severe business process interruptions, data quality failures and remediation requirements.
In addition to previewing dspCloud, BackOffice Associates will co-present an education session with customer General Mills at the co-located ASUG Annual Conference on Thursday, June 5 at 1 p.m. The session will highlight how General Mills proactively works with BackOffice Associates to manage data quality together with its use of the SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM) solution to gain better visibility into its workforce.
Since unveiling its global reseller agreement with SAP in February, BackOffice Associates has acknowledged strong demand for the SAP Data Services Migration Accelerator application by BackOffice Associates and the SAP Information Steward Accelerator application by BackOffice Associates, custom and HCM editions. The BackOffice Associates team will be on hand in booth #224 at SAPPHIRE NOW to answer questions and offer demos for both solutions, which help customers achieve fast, efficient success in data migration projects and jumpstart data quality and data governance initiatives.
