In context of GDPR, the legal department at Alpega Group Transport Services ordered a dataflow mapping exercise to get a better understanding of all “personal” dataflows between all their applications. During a series of interviews, with both functional and technical application owners, a deep-dive in all functional areas was conducted to get a grip of “personal” dataflows.
After this inventorisation two deliverables were created. Our element61 deliverable consist of two documents, a 5Ws mapping and a dataflow diagram. The 5Ws document zooms in into the Why, Whose, What, When and Where of the data processing. The dataflow diagram consists of a series of diagrams to describe the in- and output between all business applications (processes).
