Building a data strategy is an important first step in moving the agenda forward, providing you with a framework to generate business value from data and analytics. Done well, a data strategy gives you a vision, a roadmap, and flexible, agile plan to help you determine how data can help you reach your goals, and how you can support this process. In fact, many leaders are recognising that a business strategy isn’t complete without a data strategy. With this in mind, watch this video to find out how to create a data strategy tailored to your business.
It’s important to establish the fundamentals of how to create a data strategy early on. These six pillars form the core of your approach to data; your vision and value, people and culture, operating models, data governance, technology and architecture, and your roadmap. If you can nail each of these six pillars, your data will have the best possible foundation to generate business value from analytics insights.
Of course, building any data strategy isn’t as simple as ticking off six boxes, but you can learn more about each of the six pillars in the video below. From there, you can download our Data Strategy whitepaper for a more comprehensive look how to build and deliver your own strategy. Alternatively, you can join one of our London-based masterclasses to be coached on this topic by Cynozure CEO Jason Foster.
