  • 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
