All Problems Are Solved By Good Design
To manage information effectively, you first need to understand its form, its flow and its function.
Let us unravel the complexity of your existing data architecture, identify your problem areas and help you design a simpler future.
Art Meets Science
Data Architecture involves lifting the covers of an organisation to understand how it operates from an information perspective, transforming that understanding into a collection of maps and models, and then guiding the transition to a better state. It's about using visual artefacts to manage complexity, and our Data Architects are the best in the business.
We develop data models to describe the structure of your data assets and their inter-relationships. From high-level conceptual models covering the entire enterprise to lower level logical models focused on a specific domain, the objective is the same – to promote a shared understanding. When combined with a business glossary, they provide a powerful communication tool that helps everyone adopt a common information vocabulary.
We create data flow maps to illustrate the movement and dispersion of data through your organisation. Our innovative approach allows system, process and human touchpoints to be combined on a single canvas to create an intuitive picture of the data landscape. And by overlaying different views, we can provide a visual representation of risks and issues to secure senior engagement and help drive your Data Governance activities.
We use capability frameworks to drive consistency in the way information is managed across your organisation. Based on our own best practice reference architectures, they provide a template for adopting a formal approach to a specific capability such as Data Quality Management. Transitioning to new ways of working always requires careful planning, but you can rely on our many years of experience to guide you on your journey.
