Chapter 6 DATA CROSS-REFERENCES

Data cross-references bring understanding to disparate data.

The data understanding process continues with the Data Cross-Reference Function consisting of cross-referencing the Data Product Data to the Common Data, particularly the Data Product Data representing the existing disparate data in the organization’s data resource.

DATA CROSS-REFERENCE APPROACH

The data cross-reference concept is that the inventoried Data Product Data are cross-referenced to the Common Data to further increase the understanding of those disparate data within a common context.  The initial understanding gained during data inventorying is increased through a cross-referencing of the inventoried Data Product Data to the Common Data.
