DATA ENGINEERING:
Data Architecture & Strategy

As your data assets increase, so does the need for data architecture and strategy. But often, chaos (and a steep learning curve!) ensues before proper architecture is established. Weekly reports and ad-hoc requests can take too much time/effort to produce. Reporting analytics becomes a huge operational lift, especially if data literacy is lacking across the organization. And, if there’s no definitive source of truth for metrics, it’s easy to get confused about how effective marketing campaigns are. Without data architecture and strategy, business decisions tend to be made on intuition rather than data.

OUR APPROACH

Our data architecture and strategy includes an assessment and inventory of your reporting and data assets with an in-depth analysis of the results and a roadmap plan to deliver business impact. Results include reporting observations, data observations, and a complete inventory. We then discuss next steps and build a roadmap. We provide recommendations on data management and data governance with a focus on standardization.

ASSESS

Before you can manage it you need to know what you have. We help you create an inventory of all your reports and data assets to answer the following questions:

  1. What is the subject matter of each report, feed, and data source?
  2. Who owns it?
  3. Where does it live?
  4. How often is it updated?
  5. Is there appropriate security for your industry?
  6. Do we have the same data purchased in multiple places?
  7. Are we concerned with GDPR and other data protection regulations?

ARCHITECT

After we take stock of what you have, we put together a Data Strategy Activation Recommendations document. The document contains:
  1. Audit findings
    • Depending on how your business uses data it may include: #Reports, Reports, Feeds, Data Sources\Systems, Low Volume Feeds, delivery\timing, completeness, and accuracy
    • Data subjects\domains
    • Observations and commentary
  2. Recommendations
  3. Roadmap/Plan

We provide project management, documentation, training, and ongoing support.
