IT and business leaders share a common goal: leverage the data available to them in order to make more informed business decisions.
Whether you are looking to reduce the time and cost to generate insights or unlock the value of data in your organization – a vital first step is to create a data & analytics roadmap. It’s a task that many organizations find daunting, and you may find you’re asking yourself, “Where do we begin?”
THE POWER OF SIX
Drawing on nearly two decades of applied experience, while serving over five hundred enterprise clients from diverse industries, Ironside has developed a proprietary framework for assessing and progressing an organization’s data & analytics maturity. We carefully assess your company’s proficiency in each of the six key areas as a way of establishing a starting point for mapping your way forward.
Using these six pillars, we create a Data & Analytics Roadmap for your organization that assesses the current state of your data & analytics capabilities, establishes alignment on where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow, and creates a plan for how to get there.
THE PILLARS ON WHICH TO BUILD
An intentional, organization-wide plan for using corporate data to drive business performance.
Effective consumption of enterprise and ad hoc information with tools that are capability-aligned to analytics use cases.
Ability to capture, transform and enrich data assets, including documentation and maintenance of standardized definitions.
Ensuring ongoing data accuracy and development of analytic solutions that fit the company’s unique needs, culture and use cases.
Organization’s collective expertise to support the full lifecycle of data and analytics delivery.
Alignment of systems and infrastructure to support business applications in a secure, scalable and flexible manner.
HOW WE DO IT
We leverage our six pillar framework in each of these 5 phases to guide the formation of your organization’s data & analytics strategy. This framework functions as a decision model for when and how you make investments in people, process and technology in order to generate business value from data.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
We collaborate closely with our clients to focus on and deliver business value. This involves working iteratively to combine our approach and experience with your business context, culture and content. Quite simply, we work on your journey.
The roadmap combines the identified initiatives into a sequenced, time-based program. It’s supported by artifacts and deliverables that are summarized in an executive presentation that represents your journey to advance your company’s data & analytic maturity.
The result? An actionable roadmap developed in 6-10 weeks that shows you all of the initiatives you need to execute to reach your desired state of data & analytics maturity.
WHAT SETS IRONSIDE APART
While the six pillars provide a framework for Ironside’s roadmap engagements, the key to obtaining organizational consensus is research and design. We ask questions. We understand your users. We solve your business issues.
Count on us to intensely focus on the needs of your users, work with you to achieve the most ambitious business outcomes, and extract the real value of information. We’re technologists, but we realize that data, analytics and technology are all a means to an end.
