Data Management Services for the Department of the Treasury - Office of the Comptroller
of the Currency
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), an independent bureau of the
Department of the Treasury, is the federal financial regulatory body that oversees
the nation's federally chartered banks. This bureau operates in a dynamic, fast
paced environment. They receive disparate data from banks throughout the country,
translate that data into a common format, and process the data to provide summary
management information to the OCC leadership.
OCC, faced with a constant requirement to provide staff members with a myriad of
details concerning the data OCC collects, turned to Orizon with a requirement to
design, construct, and implement a corporate Data Repository containing the details
of their Data Management architecture.
To meet this requirement, Orizon engineers built an agency-wide data repository.
We also established the mechanism to dynamically update the contents of the repository
as the details of the data management environment change. The Data Repository serves
as the authoritative source of information about the data OCC gathers and uses to
accomplish its mission. Orizon staff members also built and implemented a centralized
Web-based application to enhance the storage and retrieval of OCC metadata. It brings
together the automated and non-automated metadata into a centralized database and
provide query capabilities to support the information needs of OCC users.
This application, which uses Microsoft .NET Framework and SQL Server technology,
was the first Section 508 compliant web application within the OCC. As a result
of our efforts, OCC staff members have direct access to the data management details
that are required to perform the OCC mission. The repository provides a central
location for information on OCC data and allows staff members to more easily comprehend
the intricate relationships among the myriad of data.
