Frequent Asked Questions

No, we can also work with your company to assess your data assets wherever they are (on-prem, cloud, etc) and create a strategic roadmap for your future desired state.

For example, if one of your goals is to move to the cloud, we can provide a detailed implementation plan depending on cost, complexity and business value.

We focus on mainly 5 components:

  • Current Data Assests
  • Current Processes
  • Technology used
  • People
  • Future Desired Estate

The first 4 componenet components give us a clear idea of your current state, where you are in your data journey and how does your company work internally. 

We then align what we have learned to your desired data state and list our recommendations in terms of priority, complexity and effort.

The assessment will give you a good idea of the quick wins for your organisation, as well as, a short, medium and long term roadmap to achieve your business goals.  

The duration of this engagement depends on the complexity of your environment, the size of your company and the number of processes/teams to evaluate.

It can take between 1 week to 8 weeks depending on the size of the company. 

We run several workshops with key members of each team. The team members are selected by the company and we schedule the workshops at the start of the engagement. 

The aim of the workshops is to obtain relevant information on each teams data needs, processes and technologies used.
