Smart Data

Realize the potential of data

Businesses have a huge amount of data about their customers, products, processes, etc. There is an almost insatiable desire for data; no-one is going to turn away extra information. The only problem is that once organizations have this data in their possession they don't always know what to do with it all.

Lack of awareness of the best way to read, understand and apply data can be costly for a business. Lost opportunities, reduced efficiency and productivity, quality problems, etc. are not good news for anyone. All the same, around 60 to 73 percent of all data within a business remains unused (Forrester). Place your data under the microscope and transform it into usable information in the form of Smart Data. The new insights gained and existing insights shown to work in practice are of strategic importance in a data-driven world.

Smart Data

The intelligent use of data

Every enterprise knows its own business and how to go about it. Data can help to optimize these processes. To do so, all the data held by the business need to be mapped: Is data already available in a combined form? Which applications use which data? A clear as-is situation will always form strong foundations from which to start. Once the data is cleaned up, the algorithms can be set running. These smart business rules reveal the true added value within the data. Combined results produce new figures that – if properly interpreted – can help to further fine-tune processes. Taking a timber processing plant as an example, the smart coordination of orders and planning could allow the amount of waste to be reduced, as each panel would now be optimally utilized.  Appropriate reporting would enable this to be translated to every stakeholder.

The next step could be to open up the business data to third parties through an open data platform. This can provide enormous added value for end users, as information from different businesses can all be viewed in one place.

We will map out your data journey with you

We always start from a functional angle. First, we listen to you in order to understand your business context and challenges. From there we distill the requirements, which we then translate into technical functionalities. We also work with you to look at how the data will be consumed and which security measures apply. We strongly believe in co-creation, where business and IT play an equal role.

We avoid launching straight into large, long-term projects. We always start small and break down every challenge into manageable chunks. This ensures all parties maintain an overview, and the project can be broken down depending on budget restrictions – always keeping the bigger picture in mind, of course, so all the elements come together in the end.
