Work with what data you have and develop a plan to improve it over time.

Aligned with services and identifies users to the BU / cost center level.

DATA READINESS ASSESSMENT FRAMEWORK
Data quality should be assessed on a quantitative basis so that gaps can be clearly identified, and improvements can be measured over time
The assessment should be done for each service and weighted according to cost
Usage data should also be assessed and scored in the same manner
The data quality heat map is used to provide a visual representation of the assessment results for ease of understanding
Assessment results should be used to make decisions regarding treatment for the chargeback model design, e.g., services with high quality cost and usage data could be candidates for unit based charging
