Companies today face huge demands in coping with the quantity and complexity of their data – volume is expanding exponentially, whilst quality is falling equally fast. Working with poor data wastes valuable management time, as does debating the accuracy of figures presented and missing opportunities to spot trends.
Decision-making has to be based on accurate, timely and trusted data intelligence. Companies need to be able to access the right data at the right time and present it in a manner that can be understood by everyone in your boardroom. Only then will the business have the confidence to act upon it.
In choosing which internal toxic data area to tackle first, it is important to focus on clear business objectives.
At Vendigital, we see several challenges in achieving this, not least in having data situated across multiple platforms with multiple differing legacy structures. Moving from this position to a place where data is trusted and true is not a journey that can be completed quickly, but requires the right preparation, planning and considerable reserves of stamina.
This white paper was presented at Vendigital’s inaugural Technology Seminar, hosted in London at The Shard. Packed with insight, it documents the four key stages in a data transformation journey and shows how to make the business case and where to focus first.
There’s real-world insight into why data transformation projects can fail, a candid look at overcoming internal resistance, and clearly lays out the Vendigital process to successful data transformation.DOWNLOAD
