A B2B Franchisee & DTC global retail client came to us needing a data transformation. With a poor data strategy and limited means to dynamically map and maintain global data assets, the client was struggling with their data strategy and outcomes. Together with an outdated governance model, and sub-optimal means to specify & capture meaningful use cases for Enterprise Data Projects, meant this client was needing a complete online overhaul.
We acted as a Strategic Partner, to launch and deliver an enterprise Data Transformation Programme. This programme consisted of a repeatable mapped means to identify, asses and score data assets. To build this programme effectively it required a new Data Governance process and mindset mode, together with the capture of fresh business requirements to feed into the Discovery Phases of a number of Enterprise Data Projects. These activities underpinned global Data Strategy changes in ownership, stewardship, and use.
The data transformation project refreshed this companies Data Governance capability. With new Target Operating Model live, and new business requirements model deployed in client’s three largest global data projects.
