OCC (Office of the Comptroller of the Currency)
RRP Solutions provides Data Warehouse development and maintenance activities to the OCC (Office of the Comptroller of the Currency). Activities include refreshing and maintaining the Data Warehouse environments, developing new warehouses and Data Marts, and implementing Business Intelligence tools.
The OCC needed RRP Solutions’ services to perform operations and maintenance of Enterprise Data Warehouse and the reporting front end. As new data is added to the databases, source systems are enhanced, and new data integration requirements are introduced. These data management activities require a significant amount of data conversion activities.
RRP Solutions maintains the metadata repository and the data lineage for the source to target – an application that serves as the corporate data encyclopedia.
RRP Solutions conducted a feasibility study for streamlining data sources and extract processes to improve efficiency and reduce redundancy. RRP Solutions also researched the applicability of underutilized data marts to current business needs and provided alternative solutions for reducing the gap. Additionally, the firm performed a study on the client’s reporting strategy by interviewing various user groups and evaluating various reporting tools, then provided the client with recommended improvements.
RRP Solutions implemented a PVCS software configuration management tool to ensure version control, as well as implementing a Team Track tool for task management. RRP Solutions delivers bi-monthly status reports and monthly performance measurement plans to the OCC. The bi-monthly status reports provide a detailed look at project progress for the past bi-monthly period. The performance measurement plans provide the OCC with the metric values for reported criteria such as process, customer satisfaction, scheduling and product metrics.
Methodologies for all data management activities follow the OCC’s System Development Life Cycle Methodology and CMMI processes. RRP Solutions promotes a full lifecycle approach, from initial data analysis to database design and script development, through testing and implementation. Test results are documented and checklists are used as a final Quality Assurance tool before turnover for customer testing.
RRP Solutions assisted in Enterprise Data Governance, Metadata Management and Master Data Management. Specific responsibilities include project management and planning, requirements definition and analysis, database and application design, development and testing, data staging (in/out), training, implementation and O&M (Operations & Maintenance).
RRP Solutions also develops new Data Marts and Reports, such as General Ledger Data Mart and CE Scorecard, to support the growing business needs of the OCC. Data sources include IDMS via DARS middleware, MS Access, SharePoint lists, Microsoft Excel, XML, SQL Server and LAN ASCII and Mainframe TSO flat files. RRP Solutions conducts routine data validations to ensure the stability of the production environment.
