They kept seeing projects where data was an afterthought. It wasn’t taken seriously enough by the business, because its strategic role in the business wasn’t made clear enough.
The real value of data is huge. It underpins every decision a business makes. When this is made clear, and the right tools put in place, data can be managed like any other strategic asset. The potential of data can then be realised, not just for shareholders, but for everyone that organisation impacts.
That’s what we do. It’s new, we’ve not met anyone else doing this. Our methods, tools and technologies have been carefully built in-house. All designed to fulfil our purpose.
Our purpose and values
We believe in the power of data-driven decisions to make people’s lives better, be they customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders, local communities or future generations. That’s why our purpose is to enable organisations to get the best return from their data assets.
We do this by making it easy for everyone, not just the data experts, to manage data like an asset, so everyone can make the right decisions more often.
Data is critical for decision-making, but is an invisible asset so is often treated as an afterthought. As the organisation changes, data assets aren’t adjusted to meet new demands. Investments go to technology, which is more tangible. Data goes misunderstood, under-appreciated and underinvested in.
That’s the problem we help our clients to solve. Our work makes the value of data easy for everyone in our client’s organisation to understand. At the same time, we put the foundations and tools in place so they can manage their data like any other asset. This combination creates the conditions for our clients to change their own organisations to be more data-driven, because no-one knows how to do that better than their own people.
