DATA &
ANALYTICS

Start treating your data like one of your most valuable assets. In the past, data analytics was simply viewed as passive information on a dashboard or scorecard. Today, it’s absolutely crucial for gaining competitive advantages, so it’s vital to determine where your organization stands and where to focus.

CoStrategix will get you started and navigate these complicated options. We handle every step from consulting through engineering and execution, with a singular focus on improved business outcomes.

Dataops (Data Operations)

Implementing a modern data platform is just the beginning. To drive complex and mission-critical business processes, we need to rapidly and routinely extract data sets, then analyze and deliver insights, typically in a feedback-driven, cyclical loop. Without this competency, there is a risk of never reaching your data platform’s true potential, leading to suboptimal ROIs and even a negative reversal of well-intended strategies. CoStrategix brings an operations mindset — an agile, collaborative and change-friendly approach to managing data pipelines, collaborating with business stakeholders and reducing the cycle time of value capture with analytics.

  • Ongoing team-in-a-box concept
  • Continuous delivery
  • Process and tools framework
  • Business stakeholder interaction
  • Handle platform management: costs, scalability
  • Security and compliance requirements

Data-Analytics IconData Analytics

Your organization has valuable data hidden in various systems and Excel spreadsheets. The challenge is to make it “actionable.” As humans we’re not good at making sense of tabular data. But CoStrategix makes sense of it all through storytelling and design and visualization tools that ultimately drives an organization data-mindset. We also use Machine Learning to create advanced insights and drive business outcomes.

Dashboards and Visualizations

Driving data literacy and a data mindset within your organization is difficult and leads to limited engagement with visualization tools. We help bring a “data storytelling approach” coupled with design and end-to-end implementation to cross the barriers and drive action based on data insights.

Data Governance IconData Governance

You can’t apply Data & Analytics and exploit business opportunities if you can’t trust the quality of the data. To drive business insights fast and predictably, you need a set of principles and metrics that ensure your data is effective. CoStrategix will implement data governance practices along with supporting competencies in data quality, data catalogs and other key areas.

Data Governance Framework

Your general business practices won’t ensure data and analytics effectiveness — you need an “intentional” approach that is unique to your organization. CoStrategix works with your IT and business stakeholders to orchestrate the people, processes and technology required to manage
critical data assets. We help define roles, responsibilities, policies and procedures to ensure that data is accurate, consistent, secure and aligns with your overall business objectives.

Data Quality

Multiple criteria determine the quality of your data and determine if it will can effectively provide insights to be used in decision-making. CoStrategix can help measure data quality and optimize objective measures such as accuracy, consistency, completeness, and more, in including subjective measures such as relevancy, interpretability, etc. for your organization.

  • Data Quality assessment
  • Data Quality metrics definition
  • Solutions to improve data quality
