VERSATILE STRATEGIC DATA STRATEGY APPROACHES

Depending on your business situation and needs, we implement one of two strategic models: The Waterfall Data Strategy for comprehensive, in-depth strategic and operational planning, and the Agile Data Strategy for swift, value-centric implementations where speed to market is critical.

Waterfall Data Strategy

This holistic model is organized into four sequential phases focusing on:

 

  • Organisational Alignment: Encompassing Data Leadership, Operating Model, Communication Strategies, and Talent Planning.

  • Data and Tools: Including Architecture Design, Data Governance, and Data Management Processes.

  • Analytics: Covering Toolset Selection, Analytical Process Development, and Analytical Routines Automation.

  • Measurement and Reporting: Integrating KPI Framework Development, Executive Measurement Tools, and Visual Reporting.

 

This approach unveils a comprehensive strategic roadmap, spotlighting areas prime for transformative, data-driven shifts and assuring substantial growth and developmental prospects.

Discovery and Requirements Gathering

A natural extension to our Capability Assessment, we identify and get to understand our client’s current business objectives, challenges and the key data use cases for the business. 

This is the start of the collaboration journey and establishes the art of the possible within data science and analytics.


 

Vision Setting


 

What does success look like to you? 

By effectively engaging with our clients’ key stakeholders, we collaboratively identify the overall vision, objectives and success factors for the data and insights strategy.

Critically this aligns with tangible financial benefits or goals including customer and staff engagement.

 

Strategic Planning
 

Define the business case for data investment and all the business areas for quick wins to be implemented. 

This will drive support and momentum for the data strategy and areas where value can be quickly generated are agreed.






 

Capability Building


 

Longer term requirements are defined and set out in a 6 month or up to 1-2 year roadmap, which remains aligned with the company’s strategic objectives/quick wins.

It acknowledges the requirements for future adaptations and change management procedures as the strategy is implemented and evolves, while considering 4 key pillars.

 

A Data Strategy will often uncover commercial opportunities that go beyond the core operations for your existing business and will highlight opportunities for your business to Monetise your Data to your suppliers and wider network.  At Beyond we have worked with a number or global organisations to help them develop new revenue streams and competitive differentiation from their data.  Our Featured Insights offer more perspectives on the Challenges To Get Value From Your Data and Exploiting Data in Economic Uncertainty.  Alternatively review some of our Case Studies to see how we have been putting data to work.
