Information Management

Enterprises are subjected to constant technological changes. They must also deal with the explosion in data and exchanges of information, as well as the increasing number of channels. In this context, they are today reaching a paradoxical point : whilst information is indeed a key asset, a real differentiating factor and a major competitive advantage, this results in the Information System becoming unwieldy and unclear. It can even be an impediment to innovation and transformation.

Thanks to its longstanding DNA dedicated to mastering data, Keyrus helps its clients with their projects to structure and govern data, so as to provide them with the keys to the success of what is an ambitious gamble.

  • Provide controlled and relevant data
  • Measure, rationalize and strengthen the enterprise's architectures, as much in terms of processes and organization as of cost control
  • Construct transformation plans as an ongoing initiative
  • Valorize data by designing and constructing projects

Such a subject concerns as much the business function and the organization as it does the information systems. It is for this reason that Keyrus mobilizes all its skills and depth of expertise to support its clients in their transformation initiatives.


  • Data Management Strategy

    The enterprise's information assets are dispersed in nature. To deal with this, it is necessary to put in place a framework and trajectory which will ensure that the enterprise's data is brought under control, and that uses are aligned with solutions. Keyrus aids its clients in deploying their data governance in terms of organization, processes and information systems.

    • Develop a model and structures for governance
    • Define the trajectory and implement the organization and architectures

  • Data Architectures

    Valorizing the data asset base of organizations requires a process to rationalize data and associated flows. This initiative leads to data organization being developed and disturbs the traditional vision of the Business Intelligence IS architecture.

    • Manage the urbanization of the Business Intelligence IS (hybrid datawarehouse, flows, hosting…) and assess the TCO
    • Optimize the performance of Business Intelligence ISs
    • Support transformation : social networks, Open Data, connected objects…

  • Real-time Exchanges

    The increasing speed with which information is consumed creates a need for "real-time". This need has had the effect of breaking the links between the transactional world and that of Business Intelligence. To address these issues, SOA architectures and ESB solutions, currently reserved for inter-application exchanges, must be extended to the Business Intelligence IS.

    • Provide advice on defining the architecture
    • Implement a strategy to open up the IS via suitable and innovative APIs
    • Deploy ESB solutions

  • Master Data Management

    Valorizing the information silos available to organizations requires changes in the management of reference data – on products, customers and suppliers. This involves highlighting and governing them within a single business repository, to enable the players to manage their organizations with greater efficiency. One essential contribution of this initiative is to enable reference data to be shared with all the enterprise's functions.

    • Advise on and apply the scoping of the MDM initiative
    • Deploy MDM solutions

  • Data Quality Management

    Providing reliable, objective and usable data is a major issue within all enterprises. Keyrus assists its clients in defining and implementing their data quality management (DQM) solutions, from technological choices through to governance and organization.

    • Advise on, scope and integrate quality management mechanics
    • Construct DQM projects, deploy solutions
    • Put in place the data quality governance strategy


    • DS Smith Packaging

      DS Smith Plc is a British-based international packaging business. The company manufactures packaging - corrugated packaging, plastic packaging and recycled paper - at sites across Europe. Keyrus helped DS Smith Packaging in setting up a contribution analysis system to drive sales and to take consistent decisions in Supply Chain. This initiative is part of the implementation of a Generic Profitability Analysis (GPA) tool across the entities of the group. The aim is to be able to measure profitability by order, item and/or customer.

    • UCB Pharma

      ​Implementation of the SAS Financial Management solution to support UCB’s financial budgeting process (Activity-Based Budgeting model). 40 countries were in scope, all cost elements had to be included and a workflow in SAS FM was created to support and organize the budgeting process using the standard SAS FM workflow capabilities.
