2 Request for Information Page 2 of 9 The (DMAS) department was formed in June 2006 with the purpose of providing institutional leadership through consistently developed and applied data management solutions throughout the organization. The current organizational structure is indicated below. Data Tools & Infrastructure Team(s) Data Integration Team(s) Data Delivery Team(s) BI Software Developers BI Tools & Training BPM Software Management Data Modeling & DBA ETL Development MDM / Metadata Ontology Terminology Data Architects Data Analysts Solution Architects Application Systems Analysts Project Managers In late October 2006, the team held its first informational session with key institutional thought leaders who represented the pillars of M. D. Anderson s mission: academic, research and patient care. Throughout the session, the team educated and led the discussion by informing these thought (and data) leaders on data management concepts and terminology and why enterprisewide data management is critical to the long term success of M. D. Anderson. Using the visual wheel shown here, we have componentized data management into the following areas (with our working definitions): Data Governance: policies, procedures, and standards used to govern over all other components of data management. Stewardship: the person that defines data and requirements, produces data, consumes and/or uses data, provides data quality standards, and defines appropriate access guidelines. Integration: a way to de-couple / re-use data and identify areas of synergy in data sharing. Quality Ontology Data Governance Stewardship Meta Data MDACC Data Security 25% Integration Repository

3 Request for Information Page 3 of 9 Repository: developing retention strategies, identifying system of record, and developing standards and guidelines. Security: information is an asset that should be controlled and protected and have processes around it. Ontology: maturing the definitions of our business practices (clinical, research, and administrative) into a synchronized nomenclature of comparable and known terms and their relationships. Quality: building processes to assist in the defining, detecting, reporting, and improvement of data quality. Metadata: business, process, technical and application data about data. Project Scope Analysis and Recommendation Request: This RFI is intended to solicit information from firms who can provide an understanding of the breadth and scope of information available related to data management, along with the varying strategies, tools, etc. used to implement a successful data management program. In addition, this RFI is intended to assess each firm s level of knowledge and expertise in some or all of the components of data management, as well as their ability to provide appropriate services in these areas. Please note that throughout the RFI cycle, we have no expectation of a black box solution; but, instead are seeking only clear, consistent, transparent, and repeatable processes that can be maintained and matured by our existing staff.

9 Request for Information Page 9 of 9 Project Background The mission of The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center is to eliminate cancer in Texas, the nation, and the world through outstanding programs that integrate patient care, research and prevention, and through education for undergraduate and graduate students, trainees, professionals, employees and the public. It is this three-pronged mission in service of patient care, research and education that has created a complex and non-governed data landscape. People M. D. Anderson employs over 17,000 people in clinical, research, education or the administration of services with approximately 1,200 physicians, 2000 nurses, and 500 mid level providers. The IT areas at M. D. Anderson are a mix of centralized and federated systems. Current Environment In 2004, the IT Division began a practice of IT Governance with an overall governance group tasked with project approval (funding and execution). Sub committees were established for Clinical, Research, Finance, and Infrastructure. The approval process is cyclical and begins with the new fiscal year. Approvals, work plans, technical walk-throughs are critical to the continued financial support. It is the intent that all projects be vetted through this governance cycle. Projects that do not receive funding are not necessarily cancelled, but may be funded by the hosting department (outside governance). This population of requests and presumed system manifestation is a critical part of understanding the complexity of application inventory to be undertaken with this project. Response Requirements: Please respond to chosen components and questions as outlined above, plus any additional areas you feel this project should explore, along with a listing of services offered, resource plans, background(s) of consultants to be offered, and expected timelines no later than April 30, Questions in advance of the formal due date can be addressed to
