Abstract: This paper proposes a new method for building a business-oriented data asset system. Data assets are one of the core components of the data middle office concept and require business-oriented asset mapping to realize the transformation from the asset to the broader business value. The proposed methodology uses feature hierarchies and describes how to organize data assets based on a tree structure, with the root as an object, the branch as a category, and a leaf/flower as a tag. There are energetic connections between the various object trees and the growth of these trees is supplied by the business. The instantiation of feature hierarchies can be realized in two modes: overall planning and local interception. The asset results are divided into two major parts, namely asset inventories and asset entities; these can be quickly configured as data service results for business use through service management tools in order to realize the value of the underlying data assets.

Key words: feature hierarchies, tree structure, data services, asset value
