Collibra Workflows at a Big UK Bank

The Challenge

A Big UK Bank had adopted Collibra as their Metadata tool, and were successfully using the Data Catalogue functionality to store their data elements and definitions, but hadn’t reflected their processes in the Workflows. Data Assets weren’t progressing through the lifecycle from ‘candidate’ to ‘approved’, so users lacked confidence using them.

The Chief Data Office team wanted to define their processes, set up the related Workflows, and understand the pros and cons of Collibra customisation.

What we did

Reviewed their Collibra implementation to understand existing customisations

Documented current and target state for their critical processes

Coached the Chief Data Office team how best to enable and customise Workflows

Recommended a way to mask unapproved assets from users

The Benefits

Clearly defined roles & responsibilities, process steps and dependencies

Improved knowledge of how to set up, edit and maintain Workflows

Increased understanding of how to make the most of the Collibra environment

Clarified the Data Asset lifecycle status, driving more confidence in their use

The focus on what the client needs, balanced with real life examples of how to get there has been refreshing.
