One of the many highlights from last year’s Enterprise Data World Conference was a case study presented by Christopher M Bradley, Chief Development Officer at IPL and Eldar Bjørge, Leading Advisor – Information Architecture at Statoil. Their presentation was entitled A Model Driven Data Governance Framework for MDM – A Case Study from StatOil. Statoil is an international energy company with operations in 42 countries and more than 35 years of experience from oil and gas production on the Norwegian continental shelf. With a Market capitalization of about $75 billion and over 30,000 employees, Statoil is the largest company on the Oslo Stock Market.

With Statoil’s International growth, it now operates producing oil and gas fields and is one of the world’s largest net sellers of crude oil and the second largest exporter of gas to Europe. As part of the internationalization program, a major challenge faced was how to effectively manage key Master Data across the global operation. The Data subject areas are not simply the “usual” suspects (Customer, Product etc), but included the technically complex Master Data necessary for operation of an Upstream Oil & Gas producer. This practical case study shows how Statoil:

  • Made the business case for MDM
  • Defined the Master Data Landscape
  • Engaged with process owners and line of business executives
  • Defined ownership, governance and stewardship responsibilities and introduced these into the global operation
  • Socialized the program across the organization
  • Developed and introduced a model driven governance framework
  • Avoided the “Field of Dreams” approach to MDM by delivering “just in time” Master Data services to support the business portfolio program
