Data Strategy & Analytics

REVISION aligns business outcomes with trusted actionable information driving innovation, increasing operational efficiency, and delighting customers.

The challenges we most commonly encounter include:

  • Legacy data warehouses that have failed to deliver the promised value
  • Centralized BI that stymies rapid delivery of requests
  • Complex architectures that are costly to maintain
  • Immature data governance and standardization of information
  • Business stakeholders building “shadow IT” solutions

These challenges result in lost opportunities to deliver value and insights on improving your operational effectiveness. By providing a set of targeted services that result in near-term objectives tied to value-based outcomes, and a long-term strategy to sustain that value.

We offer the following Data Strategy & Analytics services to help you achieve results:

Data Maturity Assessment

Data Maturity Assessment

One of the greatest opportunities in establishing a Data Governance program is aligning people across Departments towards delivering information together.  Our assessment yields a roadmap with an incremental delivery plan to identify cultural and process barriers to achieving well-governed data that is effectively used for decision-making.  Our experience with helping organizations embrace Data Governance makes this an efficient and useful process by identifying core issues and at the same time, establishing awareness and buy-in for the program.

Data Governance Enablement

The Data Governance Enablement offering delivers a set of workshops with Business and IT stakeholders to align on how to govern data with agility and implement information pipelines with speed.  It includes a high-level gap analysis on technology to enable a modern data strategy.  As we take your Operations and IT teams through a real use-case that will provide tangible value to the organization, we focus on developing a rhythm of work with purpose.  Our method scales from a single department to the entire organization.

THE REVISION DATA PLATFORM

Data Platform Assessment (Technology)

Through interviews and review of existing platform artifacts, we map your core platform capabilities against our reference model and deliver an incremental strategy for modernization.  We consider your existing investments and provide guidance as to the pros and cons of any replacement decision.  We work with IT and Organization Leaders as needed to facilitate discussions on the business value and impact for the proposed strategy.  The strategy work we do together provide alignment of people and process as it’s supported by the technology.

Cloud Migration Deep-Dive

Through our software-assisted forensic analysis of your data processing software platform, we score your technical debt and provide a tool to plan incremental migration of systems and significantly reduce the risk of migrating to the cloud.  We leverage best-of-breed technology to create a dependency model that gives you a Digital MRI of your information flows across systems.  The tool makes the uncertain certain and mitigates risk of disruption of service as you migrate your platforms into the cloud.  You’ll get a detailed roadmap for integration testing, and at the same time you’ll discover vulnerabilities in your code that needs remediation.  Taking this approach de-risks cloud migrations and gives the business confidence in your ability to deliver and modernize your infrastructure.

DATA PLATFORM AGILITY

Master Data Management Assessment (MDM)

We have decades experience selecting and implementing MDM software and can guide you through the evaluation and implementation process.  MDM is the biggest challenge your organization faces to achieve high-quality trusted information.  Most MDM implementations fail and don’t bring the value they promise.  The key challenges in achieving results are the demands the system places on stakeholders who must care-and-feed the solution to keep it afloat.  Over time, legacy technologies create even greater burdens on your Team as procedural rules become more complex and the system grows more brittle to change.  Whether you have an established MDM program or just getting started, identifying people, process, and technology gaps will better prepare you to achieve value.

Data Ops Enablement

You may have heard of DevOps, and now Data Ops is the holistic approach to continuous delivery and validation of analytics pipelines.  It requires your development team to work in a new agile way with new technologies to improve your outcomes and reduce development risk.  We work with you to identify people, process, and technology gaps and deliver an incremental roadmap to achieve this goal.  We can work with your teams in a step-by-step process to co-develop a DataOps framework as we implement a real-world data pipeline ensuring great results into the future of your DataOps efforts.
