"Return on Information" the new ROI
Information Architecture + Information Management + Information Technology
Not just a “Return on Investment," organizations need a “Return on Information.”
Much like managing a financial portfolio; organizations must implement methods and technology to realize this important “ROI.” Organizations also need to judiciously leverage their information assets and empower collaboration while protecting that information from bad actors and from loss. Our goal is to source the data, secure it, and make it ready for use.
Data management encompasses the entire lifecycle of a data asset, from its initiation to its final retirement. It includes activities like data governance and data stewardship, among others. Knowesis supports organizations at any stage of data management, governance, and stewardship maturity.
Our approach to data governance seeks to engage
all stakeholders, functional areas, and communities,
and is called Enterprise Data Governance
Engagement or “EDGE.” Knowesis delivers an
integrated solution to further the progress
toward data-driven decision making.
Each component of EDGE contributes to a
cohesive, effective, and quality driven solution
managed enterprise. Our capability and
capacity building expertise supports all
aspects of information engineering and

Our team is prepared to address all aspects
of data management outlined in the
Knowesis EDGE framework:
Data Modeling and Design
Reference and Master Data Management
Data Security (RMF)
Data Integration and Interoperability
We are prepared to design, implement, and operate a data management program (including Data Governance and Data Stewardship) that will mature and sustain and organization’s capability to organize, secure, store, analyze and share data.
We will typically establish an Integrated Project Team (IPT) to leverage our Data Management Capability Model (DCAM) assessment methodology. DCAM features our 30-60-90 (assess-develop-implement) iterative process and our IPT provides support, guidance, and agreements throughout the program lifecycle.
Data Governance and Data Stewardship
Critical to the delivery of Federal programs is the successful use, management, and governance of data. Understanding the scope, scale, sources, and more, of our client’s data and determining the appropriate policies, systems, analytics, records, and requirements to implement is likely to bring up a range of questions, for both users and stakeholders, alike.
We begin by gaining a baseline understanding of the Governance program and efforts underway so as not to impede progress. With that knowledge, Knowesis typically then develops a Data Stewardship, Data Quality and Data Maturity action plan to provide a standard methodology for activities such as introducing new standards, change management, knowledge management, and being an effective data steward.
