Establish Data Governance as your
Every company gathers and stores an enormous amount of data every day. Quantity alone is not enough when it comes to using this data as a strategic resource within your company. You need to generate knowledge from this data so that your company can act based on data-driven decisions. The key to success is a central Data Governance you can use to define rules, processes and those responsible for your data management. You then need to make sure this data is available to your employees. Data democratization can help make your employees data literate.
Data Orientation for your Company
Successfully establishing Data Governance and data literacy leads to assurance of data quality so that you can make sense of your data. We recommend a structured meta data management and stable information architecture so that your company can react quickly and reliably when it comes to change. A well thought out strategic concept can make you the master of the following central challenges.
Step-by-Step Towards a Data-Oriented Company
You can’t just simply collect data and expect this to make you a data-driven company. You need to systematically use the data to be able to derive strategic decisions. We guide you following one approach to provide sustainability. We will help you down your individual path to becoming a data-oriented company – from definition right through to establishing a cultural change.

Establishing Data Governance in your Company
Data Governance forms the basis of successful data orientation and enables data to be understood by everyone within your company. Profit from our many years of experience and our customer-specific approach when it comes to drafting your Data Governance. As data experts, we know all the obstacles to watch out for when it comes to establishing a successful Data Governance. We provide comprehensive support, from designing a concept right the way through to technical implementation and programming individual steps. We would be happy to help you to embed a common understanding for data within the mindset of your employees and increase their data literacy.
Building a Company-Wide Meta Data Management
We use existing systems to help you to build a sustainable Meta Data Management. Together we will create a tailor-made data catalog containing all meta data about reports, key figures and data provision to be employed throughout your company. We will take your individual requirements into consideration when helping you select a suitable data cataloging tool and implementing it successfully within your company.
Traceability of Data Stores
Data lineage starts with taking stock of existing operative systems, as well as including disparate systems (Data Warehouse and Data Lake). Your company's value chain and data structures will become transparent and traceable and can be easily documented. Data graveyards will be uncovered and eliminated. You can easily and clearly display dependencies by taking a 360° look at your data. This will help you to easily recognize ways to optimize and speed up your processes.
Data Warehouse Design
We base our data structure design on your enterprise data modeling. We link your business rules with technical data structures to achieve a technical implementation and documentation of the process chain. This enables a long-lasting process chain which is not dependent on individual employees (Data Lineage), which in turn leads to complex processes being able to be customized and fulfillment of compliance requirements.
Data Warehouse Automation with Data Vault and Innovator
Thanks to its stringent approach, Data Vault is the perfect choice for agile and automated processes.
