Getting more value from your data
Data is increasingly important to organizations. Not only as input for reports and management information but also to fuel smart algorithms and new digital services. Data is a complex subject, as it is so closely intertwined with business operations. At Squadra, we understand the essence of data like no other. We help our customers to get more value from their data and analytics.
Analytics is another name for the systematic analysis of data and statistical information. With the rise of Business Intelligence in the 1990s, more and more organizations are using performance indicators to gain insight into their business operations. With this, modern software applications make it increasingly easier for users to create or adjust reports themselves.
Recent developments such as Big Data and Machine Learning make it possible to look ahead, instead of only reflecting on past performance. Algorithms can increasingly autonomously make decisions. For example, machine learning models can determine, based on customer behavior, which marketing channel is most effective for approaching an individual customer. Or indicate when a machine needs preventive maintenance. These developments form the basis of a data-driven organization.
Many organizations have the intention to work data-driven. At the same time, the return on existing investments in analytics is often unclear. The enormous demand for experienced personnel, complex IT systems, and poor data quality are often additional complications. Therefore, the transition to a data-driven organization is often rather unruly.
To overcome any possible barriers, Squadra uses a proven approach based on the SCOPE © framework. First of all, we bring focus to the analytics agenda, by prioritizing it along the axis of the business objectives. We then bring the analytics organization, the way of working, and the supporting data & analytics platform in line with the analytics ambition. Finally, we accelerate the realization of analytics initiatives through a phased approach.
