Dataflow Analysis View
and what services they support.
The OBASHI Methodology has at its heart 5 Core Principles, but the first is key:
The understanding of the flow of data is fundamental to an organisation’s financial well-being.
By mapping how data flows between your people, process and technology using OBASHI’s Dataflow Analysis Views you can see how each asset makes a service or process work.
You’ll gain an understanding of the chain of elements that must be in place for data to flow, and even more importantly what the impact might be should one of the links fail.
Dataflow Analysis Views let you connect the dots… to see the clear picture of business operation.
Explore DAVs in more detail
Try clicking the top right corner of the images below to explore this selection of Dataflow Analysis Views in more detail. You can zoom in and pan around the diagrams. By following the flow of the DAV from start to finish you’ll see the path of the data from start to finish, and the assets it passes through on the way. As you can see, it’s an easy way to portray and understand how an organisations uses it’s assets to support operations.
These laws ensure we don’t mislead the viewer of the DAV by defining a consistence of approach between the values shown and how summary data is provided, as shown to the left of the diagram.
Individual layers can be removed from the DAV as shown above. It’s important that removing layers from a DAV do not mislead by hiding information from the viewer, so a dotted red line is used to represent the fact that elements have been removed. Additionally, any statistical information for those removed elements is summed and presented against the red dotted line. Take a look at the two DAVs above and you’ll immediately see which elements have been removed.
