Your digital transformation starts with data

Digital transformation means gleaning every insight, every efficiency, every opportunity to succeed in your market from your systems, your people, your processes and most importantly – your data. If you're like most organisations, you don’t suffer from a lack of data – but you may be short on insights.

But those insights are exactly what you need to be more efficient, optimise processes and create new revenue opportunities. And artificial intelligence (AI), cognitive computing and machine learning can only deliver on the promise of those revolutionary insights if they have high-quality data to act on. You’ve heard the saying, “garbage in – garbage out.” This clearly applies to your data estate. How you organise your data, manage, govern and industrialise it, could be the difference between success and failure in today’s digital world. Choosing a partner to help you get there is another critical step.

“This new data analytics capability is a significant competitive advantage in the loyalty marketing niche ... The data analytics solution we’ve developed with Avanade has also dramatically improved Edenred’s operational efficiency and productivity.”

Benefits: Get the most from your data estate

For many organisations, their data landscape has evolved over time, now including sensor data, IoT device data, imagery, real-time streams, social, historical and even document repositories to harness for solving business problems.

Good data estate management requires a strategic view and outside-the-box thinking. Start with the business problem you want to solve and identify the data you need to address it. You need to understand who has the data today, who will own it tomorrow, and who will ensure it stays up to date and organised. What best practices will you create, and what services, platforms and resources will you use to build scale, efficiency and speed?

We help you answer those questions. And we help you get the most from your existing data estate and apply scale, skill and accelerators so you can get to the good stuff: artificial intelligence (AI), cognitive computing and machine learning.
