Next Steps Data Strategy

Own your data and empower your business

Data Strategy will enable enlightened business decisions and identify new opportunities with data. A data strategy sets out plans, policies and programs to drive a data culture within business. A starting point to empower its creation is through a review of current processes within the business for data acquisition, data governance, data ethics and data quality. The creation of a roadmap will provide defined objectives and actionable outcomes to help enhance the availability and use of data in IT and the Business.


Starting the data journey

Creating a data journey for your business that allows for a growth in data culture and innovation is important for success. Our guiding principles of our data services are all based around international standards, the DAMA-DMBoK (Data Management Book of Knowledge).

We focus on a data strategy that follows a set of data principles:

  • All data is owned, managed, secured, and governed
  • Data is managed throughout its lifecycle
  • Data is available and visible whenever needed
  • Information is an asset
  • Use a data catalogue for visibility
  • Data is fit for purpose and meets the business need
  • There is a single version of the truth
  • Data skills training for people to use data effectively
  • Data ethical standards are followed
