The bank had 24 different IT asset management systems that overlapped each other and often contained inconsistent and conflicting data. Across those 24 systems were 18 critical data elements that needed to be reconciled and that reconciliation involved a high level of manual overhead with a high probability of data error and inaccuracy. As a result the bank decided to consolidate the 24 asset management systems into a single asset master. The bank deployed IBM InfoSphere Discovery software to automate the cross-system data analysis and mapping required to reconcile its IT asset management systems.
