Establish a data strategy that meets business objectives

Every organisation should have a robust data strategy that links directly to their overall business goals.

Become a data driven business

To use your data to its full potential, and to gain real value from it, you need to have a strategy in place.

You need an outline of how to utilise your data as a strategic asset to support your wider business goals. Any organisation can have a Data Strategy, either covering all aspects of data management, or just focussing on a specific area, to achieve your business vision.

What is a Data Strategy?

A Data Strategy works to identify data management practices that are critical to business success.

It structures a way for organisations to coordinate, design and mature their data management to support those strategic objectives. It could mean maturing your existing data capabilities or designing wholly new capabilities. These might include evolving the data operating model, optimising the data architecture, or providing a roadmap of projects and initiatives to drive change in data management.

What does a ‘good’ Data Strategy look like?

Icon 1

Takes a holistic approach

A good data strategy works best as a collaboration between IT and business stakeholders. Together, you can discuss everything needed for successful data management including people, processes, technology and culture, to build a holistic strategy underpinned by the goals of the wider business. A good data strategy looks at all aspects of data management from integration and quality of data through to ongoing data governance.

Delivers quick wins

A good data strategy isn’t trying to ‘boil the ocean’. Having a plan in place to achieve some quick value from the offset with smaller short-term objectives is a great way to kick off your data strategy and rally key stakeholders early before the more deeply strategic, longer-term initiatives come up.

Aligns with business goals

A good data strategy aligns with the overall corporate strategy and enables other business capabilities to deliver their goals. Data is an intrinsic part of a business; your data strategy should reflect this and work to achieve tangible and measurable business outcomes across the whole organisation.

How does Amplifi approach data strategy?

Who needs a Data Strategy?

Businesses and technology are evolving constantly.

This means companies can no longer have rigid, legislative data strategies which plan years into the future. In order to adapt to the constantly evolving strategic landscape that businesses face, and to help achieve shifting business priorities, organisations need lean, agile data strategies that can adapt with ease and efficiency.

Data is a unique asset that cannot be managed the same way as financial or physical assets. With the volume, variety and velocity of data increasing year on year, businesses need a coherent plan to manage and leverage their data assets, to unlock tangible value.

Every business who creates or uses any type of data, be that product data, people data, asset data, financial data, supply chain data, service data, ingredient data etc… needs a data strategy in place to unlock its value.

If this sounds like your business, Amplifi can help. Get in touch with a member of our expert team today for more information.
