You can manage the data inside your business. You cannot manage what is outside, but you can control it when it crosses the boundaries of your organisation. And it must cross the boundaries for you to survive and grow.
We have experience of managing data within an organisation. We look at your applications and processes along with your governance and policies to establish what needs to be done in order to keep your data safe, comply with the law and yet still give maximum benefit from owning the data.
A light-touch data governance strategy will help prevent costly problems by helping everyone understand how data is used in your organisation. Business processes collect a specific data set to complete a transaction or process. Too focussed an approach will lead to the omission of vital data for downstream processes; too broad an approach will cause delay and introduce error.
We have experience in acquiring data from external sources to drive sales, marketing, product development, market analysis and to support strategic decision making. The quality of this data, its accuracy and freshness, is of the utmost importance. We work with trusted sources, specialists in their own fields to acquire the best possible data.
For your data to be utilized across your organisation, the right people, and only the right people, need access to it. The data needs to be in a form readily usable across your organisation. Most importantly, everyone needs to trust the data is accurate, reliable and consistent.
