How are data silos impacting your organisation's speed and ability to make informed decisions?

Many organisations still struggle to stitch together all of their data into a single source of truth. As organisations grow, they acquire new business systems that may not integrate well with their existing technology. The fast pace of technological change may see the introduction of new analytics tools that need to co-exist with legacy reporting systems. Organisational data may be residing on-premises and in multiple clouds, making it difficult to combine. The end result is a complex data estate that is challenging to manage, difficult to scale, and costly to sustain.

As an accredited Microsoft Partner for Data and AI solutions, we can help you migrate to or build a modern data analytics platform to accelerate the value derived from your data leveraging Microsoft technology.

A strategic approach to resolving your data analytics challenges.

Before embarking on a project, it is essential to understand your organisation’s position from a data maturity perspective, where you currently are, and where you plan to go. Some scenarios may include:

  • You may have data sources siloed to each business unit, each with its own reporting tool or Excel spreadsheets.
  • You may have consolidated some of your data sources using analytics tools. Still, the technology may not be scalable or have the level of automation to ensure good quality data and timely insights.
  • Your organisation may have reached a more mature stage of data analytics capabilities. You may be looking for more advanced capabilities, such as predictive analytics or getting your data ready for use with the latest AI technology.
  • You may have invested in a modern data analytics platform, but you don’t feel that you have achieved your project's expected return on investment.
  • You may be looking to migrate a legacy reporting system to a modern data analytics platform.
No matter your situation, we can help you progress to the next step with a complete range of data analytics consulting services.
