Utopia has developed a complete and unique data lifecycle methodology that we call Enterprise Data Lifecycle Management™ (EDLM). EDLM is an umbrella data architecture strategy that combines business process, data processes, people, and applied technologies to manage and improve the lifecycle of data across an enterprise - from creation through archival.

Business Aligned

As Utopia designs the EDLM roadmap, we focus on your enterprise business objectives and initiatives. Data is an enterprise asset and an EDLM Assessment and Strategy will enable business process optimization, hard dollar savings, and greater reporting integrity. Utopia will bring the templates, frameworks, documentation, and experience to deliver a custom EDLM Assessment and Strategy that supports your unique organizational and geographic considerations in both the immediate and long-term horizons.


Our EDLM framework expands beyond data governance and outlines the critical alignment between IT and business stakeholders related to Data Architecture, Standards, Governance, Quality and Change Management.


Utopia's model is to team with our clients to introduce templates and reusable frameworks that leverage the organization's existing strengths, to work within the unique institutionalized boundaries that are core to the organization's culture, and to develop a pragmatic, achievable roadmap that maximizes early wins and builds on operational success to gain buy in for further roadmap implementation. With this in mind, we provide a holistic data-centric approach to optimizing our client's business processes and helping them achieve their business goals.
