Tired of consultants?
Try a guru.
Not many argue with us when we say data governance as we know it is broken. Traditional data governance is centered around security, compliance and correctness in a very command-and-control manner. Fast-forward to today where we have petabytes of unstructured data from disparate sources being analyzed by users of all experience-levels and functions, and ever-changing business definitions - and you can begin to understand the root of the problem.
We're helping companies modernize their data governance programs by redefining what it means, who plays what role in it and how we measure it's success.
Turning data into useful information can be really challenging. It generally requires getting the right data to the right person at the right time - so, lots of room (and usually little tolerance) to miss the mark.
We help companies to think holistically about their data products and their actual usefulness to the business, using our "Who, What, Why, When, How & What Next" framework for visualizing data.
Data Culture Strategy
Investing in new technology is easy. Even implementing new technology can be pretty straight forward. But changing human behavior on a large scale, on your timeline is hard - really hard. While most organizations make efforts to build a culture centered around data, McKinsey reports that just 8% of them actually achieve analytics at scale.
We're helping companies beat the odds by developing strategies that focus on enabling and mobilizing internal communities of passionate data champions that grow naturally and eventually become self-sustaining.
