As the market continues to consolidate and companies sell off assets, not only are the physical assets separated and sold, so are the digital assets – or liabilities. John Schmidt covered it in one of his recent blogs.
When the information to be separated and sold resides in a database, you need to understand the data model and determine what master data, or reference data, and transactions belong to the new company. In the case of separating master data this may involve understanding the relationships between multiple systems to make sure that when the data is moved into the new company, it maintains context, is accurate and complete. With transactional data, you need to know the tables and rows that comprise a complete transaction so that when data is moved, no orphaned rows are left behind.
