Each company has its own information to define its businesses (around 1 000 pieces of information in an ETI and between 2 000 and 3 000 in sectors such as banking and insurance). This information is often not described and let business users interterprates.
Successful integration requires having a common language to explain a job and a common language.
Common language is the key to success. People will share the information, indicators and KPIs necessary for management. You must succeed in visualizing the 2 original information repositories (Business Glossary) and work to bring them together in a common business repository.
If the merger is carried out between 2 companies of different nationalities, some subtleties can be lost in the description of information and because of the choice of the a common language (example: a Franco-German industry with a shared language: English!)
Thanks to Meta Analysis:
The notion of security domains: everyone can keep their specific domain and enrich a common domain which will become the basis for sharing information
Native multilingualism which allows the Business Glossary (business information) to be available in as many languages as there are countries making up the group
This solid and shared base of business information will enable integration into the group information system.
