Enter into the world of Datatunnel

Data-driven organisations are better prepared to protect brand reputation and deal with challenging issues around data privacy, data security models, intrusions or changing data legislations. Working towards common goals can only be achieved with trained staff, data-savvy managers and a good data governance programme.

Our Experience

Our data team have completed a vast amount of data projects in small and large enterprises. What is the data issue in your company? Well, we have good news; datatunnel helps you discover and resolve many data issues.

Our Philosophy

Data management consists of twelve main knowledge areas. To tackle relevant data issues, we prioritise specific knowledge areas. During our discovery phase we develop and report through three communication channels; the business-, the data- and ICT infrastructure teams.

Top Level Data Management Services

Our data projects are implemented through a modular approach. First, we assess the state of your data governance. You have an opportunity to assess the quality of our work.

Then, we breakdown your data issues in several categories.

Next, we assess and share the benefits and costs of implementing integrated data management solutions.

Finally, your team and our team set common project goals with the support of a data management programme and the results are measured with periodic programme metrics.

Our 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.

First quadrant of data governance

  • Data Governance: Identify the state of your data governance and provide a list of improvements throughout data management knowledge areas.

  • Foundational Data Infrastructure: This knowledge area delivers solutions to setup a central data architecture framework to connect your enterprise data.

  • Data Security and Privacy: Assess the level of protection and data privacy with regards to data legislation, company policies and architecture.

Second quadrant of data governance

  • Data Quality Management: You can have good data and you can have unreliable data. This knowledge area delivers solutions to monitor the quality of your data.

  • Unified Data Modelling: This knowledge area looks at how data sources are linking data between systems and delivers solutions for a unified corporate schema model.

  • Master Data Consolidation: Your organisation consists of many databases and this knowledge area looks at consolidating all master data and reference data models under one central master data framework.

Third quadrant of data governance

  • Metadata Integration: You may deal with structured databases or unstructured data. You are trying to link all that data, but your data asset is not documented with metadata. This knowledge area delivers a central metadata framework to link and search through all your data assets.

  • Data Life Cycle Management: Data has a life cycle; data is current, historical or data can deprecate over time. This knowledge area delivers solutions to manage your data life cycle.

  • Integration of Database Systems: Connects your enterprise data. Looks at how to efficiently exchange data throughout your organisation.

Fourth quadrant of data governance

  • Modern Data Warehousing: This knowledge area looks at your data assets and delivers the most suitable data repository framework to manage all your structured or unstructured data sources. We deliver solutions such as data warehouses, data marts and data lakes.

  • Business Intelligence and Analytics: Your data is in a good state or bad state and a data visualisation framework provides metrics to retrieve business value behind your data. We deliver a set of visualisation solutions at all levels of your organisation.

  • Artificial Intelligence: Data science is a key knowledge area to design data value metrics against your good data. We have data scientists that support your organisation with advanced analytics such as predictive models and machine learning solutions.

Programme management

Data Managed Services

We work towards common goals to discover, share and transfer knowledge. Some knowledge areas turn into an uphill battle, but our communication strategy, managed services programme and activities ease the pain to reach your goals.

When you run a large data management project, you will need to appoint the right data-savvy team and partners to lead a successful managed services programme.

Metrics: We share programme management metrics on size, effort, time, cost, quality, effectiveness, productivity, success and business value.

Knowledge strategy: We provide documented procedures and retain knowledge in the customer organisation to capitalise on data management knowledge areas.

Costs: Our top-level services can be purchased individually or contracted under a Data Managed Services suscription 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.

Data management team: We help you build a data management team, trained and empowered with well-defined responsibilities for an efficient decision-making process.

The critical success factors help all teams to be aligned towards a common data project.

Change management operations: To drive communication strategy and develop data roles that have desired attitudes and beliefs.

Which metrics can you expect?

A data managed services programme sets several goals across various knowledge areas. You can expect three types of metrics:

Programme metrics

Measure the overall success of the data governance programme. Usually, programme directors share these metrics with company stakeholders and get feedback.

Data quality metrics

Monitors how bad data over time improves to good data. Usually, data-savvy managers oversee such data improvements.

Data value metrics

Insights on measures that contribute to the overall business value. These metrics are provided by data scientists to R&D, Sales, Marketing or Finance departments.
