Strategic Data Assessment
Our actionable data assessments show how data can do more for your business.
How We Help
Everyone has data, but not everyone is making good use of it.
Discovering gaps in how data is collected and knowing how it supports or fails your desired outcomes requires an objective process of discovery, analysis, and planning.
Our strategic data assessments show, rather than tell, how your data can do more for your business. Resultant’s data governance specialists, data engineers, data architects, and business consultants dig into the larger story of your data to understand the full context of your business, strategy, and processes.
The old carpenter’s adage measure twice, cut once is just as apt when building scalable data infrastructure. Assessment is measurement. The result is actionable direction and a roadmap for success while providing objective, qualitative, and quantitative justification for the investment.
How do you ensure that the results of a strategic data assessment are actionable and can drive meaningful change within the organization?
The key to data strategy implementation driving meaningful change is involving people with organizational change management expertise because the implementation will often require changes in business operations and practices that may be met with internal resistance.
We’re proud to help organizations thrive, and we’d love to tell you more.
What We Do
What Do Data Assessments Tell Us?
By taking the time to understand the details, we develop a holistic picture of where you are today and where you can go tomorrow.
We'll identify available data, determine its completeness, variability, and scope, and uncover areas for improvement in the data collection process. The assessment will leave you with an understanding of data collection inconsistencies between your technology sources, an analysis of data that requires additional cleansing, and a holistic view of the foundation upon which predictive analytics can occur.
Our expert data engineers scour every database, table, index, and stored procedure, as well as review query logic to develop a comprehensive report detailing recommendations for remediation to performance challenges. Implementing your recommendations leads to timely reporting and better performance from your existing hardware—eliminating the need to purchase new equipment.
You'll get a comprehensive data inventory including a review of your data, how it’s collected, where it’s stored, and more. In addition, our team of expert data analysts works with you through a data discovery process to uncover how you can put your data to use. You’ll walk away with a well-defined roadmap of potential data use cases and improved time to value with better end results.
