Good governance is only possible with accurate and timely information that supports decisions and actions. 

The proposition underpinning the BIG Model is that all this data is collated into a data warehouse from the master sources before it is extracted with business intelligence tools to create reports. 

The combination of information from multiple sources requires common references for the source data.  These common references must be used by all component systems. An implementation of the BIG approach starts with a strategy for common data structures.
