Although many companies have tried to use data as a means of creating competitive advantage, the majority have failed. In our experience this is due to a combination of:
Our Information quality offering is a proven framework, consisting of management information (MI) strategy, operational intelligence and data quality, that puts into place the processes and technology that turn corporate data into a functional business asset.
Too many organisations make the mistake of considering their information strategy as a data and technology problem; one that can be solved by a technical team working remotely from the business. Instead we work in collaboration with you to develop the MI strategy that considers ‘people and process’ in addition to data and technology.
Using our modular and re-usable toolkit we select the right business process performance indicators that connect business processes with measures such as revenue, cost and working capital performance, which provides a direct link between your everyday operations and shareholder value.
We define and implement a process to repair and measure the quality of your data. At first we focus on delivering quick business benefits, and then fine-tune the process in order to meet the more difficult challenges. Finally, we ensure that this quality process can be maintained once we leave.
Our methods are based on our commercial experience and understanding of business issues across all industries. We do not sell technology and do not offer outsourced or managed IT services (although these may be recommendations we make). However, we do partner with best-of-breed vendors. This position means we are ideally placed to provide insight, objectivity, challenging the solutions available, and identifying the best tools and processes to drive your business forward through information quality.
