Document repository program s evolution cont
Document Repository Program(s) Evolution, cont.

  • Parent company (Daimler AG) implemented their own repository (Planning IT)

    • PlanningIT holds most of the same information

    • Global use of PlanningIT across all subsidiaries necessitates that all information be categorized and tracked in a similar fashion

  • Decision must be made about what to do with two repositories

    • Classifications of some specific applications do not match exactly with either methodology

    • Will we use both and maintain repeated data?

Planningit compliance reports
PlanningIT Compliance Reports

  • QS reports are SQL Queries that search for specific information

    • Examples:

      • Applications that do not have a name

      • No start date/end date

      • No defined Business Support

  • The reports respond with a list of applications that lack what information was being queried

    • The reports search many tables that hold all information about applications

  • Germany runs monthly reports, must be within 2%

  • I run the reports weekly and tracks any changes to applications on the reports
