Data Strategy / Governance
Data maturity assessments using maturity models and best practice data assessment methodologies (including CMM, DMBOK, ODI).
We can improve the consistency, coverage and timeliness of data collection and the efficiency of business processes through a level of targeted automation – especially where Microsoft Office or Google Suite applications are already in use.
As anyone who is experienced in data science will tell you, this is where the bulk of effort is often required. We can help with the nitty gritty here. We focus on tools that are simple and powerful and can be picked up easily by others.
Data is only impactful when it is used to influence awareness and decision making. We can help iteratively develop, then automate the presentation of your data in a way that executives or other decision makers can quickly interpret meaningfully. We can use tools such as Tableau, PowerBI or lever the power of the often underestimated excel pivot table.
