Depending on when we were engaged, most of our projects fall into one of three categories.
Pre-migration, Migration and Production
As project manager for the Master Data Feed process our consultant standardised the template management and data load processes to make them more efficient for this data migration project. Using MDLresolver the MDLman consultant improved the quality of data loads to the cloud-based LMS. This led to a rapid improvement in throughput and reduced the failed loads to zero for the 600 data loads carried out on this major global rollout project.
MDLman was asked to project manage both the internal and external teams (including some offshore) for the implementation of a new cloud-based LMS. The project involved extracting the people and organisation data from two different sources (SAP and MS Domain Database) into an Infomatica database. From there the MDLman consultant transformed the information into the correct format to load it into the new LMS. This involved testing the data, loading it into a test environment for the new LMS and then setting up a regular daily data feed process. Before MDLman was engaged the project had suffered multiple delays in setting up the basic data feed process. Within 10 days we had achieved the first data loads after a 5 month delay.
Data integrity issues
The client encountered data integrity issues during the deployment of a Global eLearning system. MDLman’s consultant used MDLresolver as deduplication software and for data integrity checking of all 30,000 courses in the Course Catalogue. This enabled them to implement a process to extract the Course Catalogue data, verify it and update all the courses with the correct information. This was a major success and led to a dramatic improvement in data quality and reduced the Course Catalog by 60%, which saved unnecessary time spent on maintenance and improved management reporting.
