We explore the process of preparing for a Reltio implementation. Whether you are considering implementing Reltio, in the pre-sale phase, or actively working on an implementation, this guide will provide you with valuable insights and recommendations to ensure a successful implementation. We will cover the methodology, checklist, requirements, and team structure that play crucial roles in preparing for your Reltio implementation.

The Reltio Way Methodology

The Reltio Way is a prescriptive methodology developed by Reltio over several years. It leverages proven implementation practices and follows an agile framework to deliver efficient and effective results. The methodology consists of three sprints or milestones: data quality, producing the Reltio ID, and achieving go-live with downstream system integration. The ultimate goal is to provide a data management solution within 90 days, offering tangible value to your organization.

Sprinting Towards Success

To achieve a rapid and successful implementation, it is essential to focus on key elements and complete a comprehensive checklist. The checklist includes various items such as requirements gathering, data profiling, access provisioning, training, and integration planning. By addressing these components, you can ensure that you are well-prepared and ready to start sprinting towards your implementation goals.

Checklist for Preparedness

Here is a checklist that outlines the crucial tasks and considerations for your Reltio implementation preparation:

  1. Identify and master the domains to be included in the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) phase: Determine the specific areas of your business that will be included in the initial implementation. Prioritize the most critical domains to ensure a focused and successful launch.

  2. Define functional and non-functional requirements, including a detailed checklist and user stories: Clearly define the features, capabilities, and performance expectations for your Reltio implementation. Create a checklist of requirements and user stories to guide the development process.

  3. Assess data readiness and perform data profiling: Evaluate the quality and integrity of your data by conducting a thorough data profiling exercise. Identify any data inconsistencies or issues that need to be addressed before implementing Reltio.

  4. Provision access and ensure necessary permissions: Determine the individuals or teams that require access to Reltio and ensure they have the necessary permissions. This step is crucial to ensure that the right people have the right level of access to perform their roles effectively.

  5. Provide comprehensive training: Maximize adoption and utilization of Reltio by providing comprehensive training to your users and stakeholders. This training should cover the functionality of the system, best practices, and any specific workflows relevant to your organization.

  6. Plan and prepare for integration with other systems: Identify the systems that need to integrate with Reltio and create a plan for seamless data flow between different platforms. Consider data mapping, API integration, and any customization required to achieve the desired integration.

Pre-Sale Scoping and Requirements

During the pre-sale phase, it is crucial to have a clear understanding of your implementation requirements. Reltio provides a structured checklist and scoping sheet to capture your specific needs. This scoping exercise allows you to determine if your requirements align with the out-of-the-box functionalities or if additional customization is required. By evaluating your requirements and scoping the project appropriately, you can establish a roadmap for subsequent phases while still achieving quick value delivery in the initial 90-day timeframe.

By following the Reltio Way methodology, completing the checklist for preparedness, and conducting a thorough pre-sale scoping exercise, you can set the stage for a successful Reltio implementation. Remember to involve key stakeholders, allocate resources effectively, and maintain open communication throughout the process. With proper planning and execution, you can leverage Reltio's data management solution to drive tangible value and achieve your organization's goals.
