What we do

Data Management

Identify the data management requirements and organisational data issues of your company.

Connect your data and departments with a proper data management methodology.

Integrate the proper tools that support data management knowledge areas.

Promote a company-wide understanding of knowledge areas and the value of your data assets.

Our final goal is to help you mature in your data capabilities and upgrade specific skills, talent, tools and processes that you need to reach digital maturity.


Enterprise Data Strategy Design

Data Strategy Design And Communication
We are subject matter experts in data strategy design and communication. We provide to business users a pragmatic approach to design a modern data strategy. Our data strategy methodology aligns the data strategy with the business strategy and operational priorities. Our data strategy covers the Body of Knowledge in Data Management and we look at the maturity level of your enterprise data in relation to data domains such as data security, data integration, data quality and business intelligence.

The result of our work is a data strategy report that is fully aligned to your business strategy and provide a calendar for implementation of priorities.

Digital Transformation Programme

Digital Transformation Programme Management

If you need a programme manager for your Digital Transformation programme, Datatunnel can provide you one.

It will be challenging to think “big data or advanced analytics” unless you start classifying, securing , integrating, and sharing your valuable structured and unstructured data. All these transformative developments will build the confidence of all stakeholders and operations and help you evolve in your data maturity levels. Trusting your data will be the fundamental component to mature in your analytics capabilities. Once your company is spearheaded in the analytics roadmap it will do more with data and gain a competitive advantage in their market.

Data Managed Services Programme

Data Managed Services Programme Management

Our Data Management Knowledge Areas are broken down in twelve service components including Master Data Management, Data Architecture Services, Data Modelling Services, Data Quality Services, Data Warehouse Management, Business Intelligence, Data Lake Management, AI and Data Science Services, Metadata and Classification Services, Data Integration Services, Data Security and Privacy Services and Data Life Cycle Management Services.

These services can be purchased individually or contracted under a Data Managed Services subscription model. We assign subject matter experts to each service and you pay only for what you use under an agreed utilisation rate per month. This avoids you having underutilised resources.


Our tactical work and advise have received numerous recommendations from people around the world. We always appreciate such testimonials for the good work and appraised efforts and we are thankful for the opportunity given by these executives.

Alec Dolan

Former CIO, Department of Justice and Equality, Ireland

Fede was pretty much a founding member of Justice and Equality Data and Analytics. He brought massive specialist knowledge and problem-solving abilities. He lives for data governance and all that goes with it and his recommendations in respect of pilots and proofs of concept have all been substantial successes and form the basis of the platforms now in use in Justice. He is an excellent communicator, both in writing and in person.

Begona Agueda

Former Language services specialist and multilingual communication strategy advisor, Amnesty International, Spain

I contacted Fede in the preliminary phase to write a business plan that would lead the setting up of the Language Resource Centre in Amnesty International. I sought his advice to understand the best options for implementing a single platform to channel all language service requests. Fede’s capacity to understand the complex context and requirements of Amnesty was brilliant and his views of the different tools available in the market at the time were extremely useful.

René Petri

Former Senior Director IT Operations, Nero Development & Services GmbH, Germany

Fede has a very deep knowledge of the special markets in the translation supply chain! We hired him as an expert to save costs and set up a whole new supply chain for the localisation of all our Nero Products, Marketing and Web! Getting away from the very expensive Single Service Provider to a localised supply chain for each region. The project was a charm! We could really benefit from all his contacts and especially from the help in making rock solid contracts and good prices. We minimised our budget from €1.4m to €700,000 and this with better quality overall! This was a real success. Without his extensive help, this couldn't happen with such quality and within that very tight schedule.

Derek Coffey

Head of Development at Department of Justice
Fede piloted various data architecture developments that are nowadays in use by the Department. These developments included the adoption of the R analytics infrastructure and Elasticsearch technology. Fede was also the author of the Data Lake for analytics that allows our data analysts to access a data catalogue that connects to hundreds of databases. Overall, the Data Lake implementation provides significant savings and a greatly improved turnaround time on analysis- this project was delivered over a period of two years.

Our story

By Fede L. Nolasco, Founder

A few years ago, a group of skilled people were hired to work on a large data project. A few of us joined at an early stage to work hand-in-hand with the CIO and started drafting the vision for the future on data governance. Other skilled members were contracted to deal with data infrastructure and business process analysis as well as carrying out prototyping and transformational work.

We got to know each other well, dealing with day-to-day challenges. From our respective experiences, we dealt with similar data issues in the past and we spotted that many companies are in need for a team like Datatunnel.

We learned that working towards common goals requires a talented team that speaks with one voice and shares the same beliefs.

Datatunnel was born in March 2018 to turn companies into data-driven organisations.

Datatunnel home is located in 22, Wilford Court, Cork Abbey Avenue, Bray, A98V755, Dublin, Ireland.
