Data Quality Assessment


Our data scientists and analysts will work with you to assess exactly where you stand today with your data. Whether your project is being driven by new regulations or a desire to better understand the quality of data you own our team can provide fast and accurate assessments.


Data Quality Assessment


Our approach is proven and predictable. We use a “surgical” process built on over 20 years of expertise analyzing millions of records using our purpose-built data quality tools. The following are the steps in a typical engagement :

  • We will work together with you to identify your target data set and the fields that we should analyze.
  • You transfer the data, simply and securely to Kingland for processing in our data science and research systems.
  • The data quality diagnostics in our data quality engine identify more than 100 unique data issues specific to legal entity or security master reference data.
  • We run an extensive set of data profiling routines optimized for the reference data to segment the data issues and provide quantifiable context.
  • Our teams of data SMEs engage to perform contextual analysis of the data and consolidate precise data quality findings.
  • We work together to report on the quantified data quality issues, prioritize the issues, and discuss your options for data cleansing, remediation, and data governance improvement to maintain the data going forward.


Data Cleansing & Maintenance


Data Cleansing and Maintenance Services from Kingland help Operations, IT, Risk, Compliance departments and Enterprise Data Management (EDM) programs increase data quality and improve the overall efficiency of data management. With specialization in securities, client, counterparty, legal entity data, and complex hierarchy data, our services are customized to meet your requirements.


Data Cleansing and Maintenance


Our team of professionals and subject matter experts have spent years managing and analyzing data. They are equipped with sophisticated data tools and leverage a unique on-shore data cleansing operation to provide you with accelerated schedules, lower project risk, and higher quality data. We have also taken the lead on data management, governance, and processes and applied it to a Data Scientist practice.

Our data scientists do more than profile or provide statistical analysis of your data – they analyze and break down large data sets into smaller groups of data that allow for consultations with you on the fastest and most economical ways to address the problems in your data. Our data scientists then take the subsets of data and load them into specialized queues that allow data research analysts to work faster and more efficiently, improving and augmenting data for you.



Data Management Capabilities and Maturity


Kingland can provide a variety of data management and maturity assessment, workshop and consulting services to help your organization. Whether you are one of the worlds largest financial institutions or a group of scientists exploring the frontiers of earth and space science for the benefit of humanity we can help guide you to higher levels of data management maturity.


Data Management Capabilities and Maturity


Kingland is uniquely positioned to provide data management and governance program guidance, along with an objective assessment of your activities. Our team has expert certification on two data management maturity models: the Data Management Maturity (DMM℠) Model from the CMMI Institute; and the Data Management Capability Assessment Model (DCAM™) from the EDM Council. With over 20 years experience helping some of the largest institutions in the world effectively manage their data, Kingland can be trusted to help you. We helped introduce the concept of data management maturity models to the world starting in 2009, and were involved as co-author in the creation of both models.

Whether you are just building your data governance capabilities, having problems achieving data quality objectives, or need an assessment of existing data management programs to isolate core weaknesses, we have precise engagement models to meet your needs.

Enterprise Architecture Appraisal


Our architectural appraisals are based on a thorough analysis of what the solution is attempting to accomplish including reveiws of the system design, code, run-time environment and operation.


Enterprise Architecture Analysis


We work together with you to provide an thorough report on the current state of your architecture and recommendations on how to improve response time and performance, remediate problem areas of code, and create a road-map for long-term solution viability. Our software architects, analysts and DevOps engineers provide enterprise software architecture appraisals for two very specific types of enterprise software:

  • Enterprise risk and compliance systems, such as those systems used to track conflicts of interest, manage regulatory compliance, or optimize which products and services should be offered while complying with complex global regulatory environments.
  • Reference master data management systems used to provide the highest quality data based on internal and external systems and data feeds. These systems can be hub, federated or hybrid architecture.


Enterprise Application Software Development


From strategy to implementation, we design, develop and implement software solutions that help drive transformation, improve productivity, and streamline business operations.


Enterprise Application Software Development

DevOps Development


DevOps is the practice and belief that software developers and operations architects should work closely together to build and maintain applications


Dev Ops Development


This philosophy of shared responsibilities allows you to rapidly develop and deploy your applications and their supporting infrastructure. The specific goals of a DevOps approach span the entire delivery pipeline. They include improved deployment frequency, which can lead to faster time to market, lower failure rate of new releases, shortened lead time between fixes, and faster mean time to recovery in the event of a new release crashing or otherwise disabling the current system. Simple processes become increasingly programmable and dynamic, using a DevOps approach which aims to maximize the predictability, efficiency, security, and maintainability of operational processes. Automation is essential to achieving this objective.

Our DevOps services help you take your current application deployment and management approach to an entirely new level of automation, speed and predictability. We work with you to enable your solution to automatically build, deploy and be managed in development, test and production operating environments. This solution enablement will work in appropriately configured private, hybrid and public cloud environments. Utilizing industry leading tools like Ansible and Puppet for configuration management, Gradle and Jenkins for automated build and code testing, and VMWare for the software defined data center. Kingland will help you develop the capability and flexibility to create solutions that can be continuously built, deployed and run-anywhere.
