Takeda Commercial MDM SQA Audit

Master Data Management Software Quality Assurance

Takeda migrated their Commercial MDM applications from Informatica to Reltio.  They expressed concern that the work performed to document and test the new platform created both functional and potential compliance risks.

They asked Osprey to perform an audit focused on documentation, processes, and SQA best practices to determine the scale of the issue and potential corrective actions with the expectation that remediation would likely be the next step.

“There was concern that Takeda’s documentation had both functional and compliance risks.”

Audit Findings


Deficiency Categories

65% of findings were remediated by Osprey’s audit team in real-time.

Documentation is now a true reflection of the current state of Takeda’s MDM system.


Osprey developed a plan of action for auditing the assets, including the creation of an audit framework for capturing results and findings.

We then performed a multi-faceted audit covering the QA process as well as the corresponding documentation.  In addition, we developed a QA framework including Strategy, Test Plan, Test Cases, Traceability, and an Execution plan that can be utilized for current and future QA activities.

Project deliverables included a full set of documentation including audit findings, documentation review results, and the aforementioned QA framework.


Osprey Responded With the Following Actions:

  • Overhauled the SharePoint site to fit into a new SDLC taxonomy that best suited the client
  • Eliminated duplicate assets and provided guidance on best search practices
  • Trained teams on the new taxonomy, best practices for file naming conventions, and preventing duplicates
  • Corrected content gaps in documentation by looking at the system’s configuration and meeting with various client teams to replace gaps with the appropriate content
  • Defined an SQA Framework that helped the client teams make use of templates, provided best practice guidelines that were predictable and repeatable, and addressed gaps in the SQA processes
