What does it mean to be Data-Driven

The adjective data-driven means that progress in an activity is compelled by data, rather than by intuition or by personal experience.

Data is used, both to measure progress, but also to drive the attainment of the business goals.

In the video, we talk about the following:

What might this mean for you?

An information strategy aligns your digital needs. Data, information, and technology to your business processes, goals and KPIs.

Map your Enterprise Architecture. This is what makes your business unique. Understand how your processes come together and from this, you can build your Data Vision. Together with your Business Glossary, you will define your Master Data Structure which is vital for any business aspiring to be Data-Driven

The explosion of digitization in the last 20 years has led to a proliferation of technology led solutions, where your business operating model has been lost within an existing set of disconnected applications.

The outcome is information quality issues, excess cost and inefficiencies.

The information and data that you need to run and grow your business profitably has been left behind in this digital explosion.

Many businesses have been seduced by the promises of technological transformation.

As a result, the foundations of a data driven business, the Master Data Structure, is fractured across silos.

Whether these are departmental, process, system or technology driven, silos are the biggest single contributor to information and data quality issues.

Silos are the biggest single contributor to information and data quality issues.

At Intelidat, we help businesses refocus on their business needs. We focus on your reporting needs, identifying efficiency and productivity opportunities and deliver accurate forecasting models.

We are software agnostic. We work with the technology that best suits your business operating model today and help you plan how to do that for the future.

Technology, Information, and Data need to support the Business deliver its goals.  By focusing on business needs, taking into account “aspirations” and “wants” enables the business to meet its current needs while allowing for future changes.

Technology comes and goes; data and information is an ongoing requirement.

By remaining software agnostic, we try and work with the technology already in place.  We do not start from a position of trying to introduce a particular brand of technology.

Accurate Real-time Data | Ready for AI | Efficiency | Productivity | Scalability

Are you ready for the 21st Century?

We have over 30 years experience in delivering quality data and integrated business solutions as the solid foundations that underpin the information needs of your business.

An information strategy is the crucial first step to understand if you are getting value for money from your existing technology investment and what you will need going forward.

Data value is realised when your data works for you: tells you what is going on, identifies efficiencies and inefficiencies, or helps you understand what might happen next or as a result of planned changes.

Without a strategy and plan behind your digital tools, the likely outcome is that information quality issues, excess cost and inefficiencies will prevail.
