Data

Businesses run on data

We accelerate it.

Data is more than the backend to your applications, it’s your ticket to smarter decisions, better customer engagement and business growth.

In order to fully realize the asset your data provides, it must be structured, organized and usable. Our Data projects focus on the foundational data practices to ensure your organization’s success, now and in the future.

Architecture

The first step in developing a data strategy involves identifying the current state. We take the time up front to truly understand your goals, prior to identifying the best path forward. We help you define a scalable data solution for your organization. From assessment to road map to implementation, UDig will aid you in your quest for data maturity. Get started by downloading our Data Management Assessment Quickstart.

Quality

Decisions made on data are only as good as the data itself. A solid data strategy requires more than technology, it requires discipline. In order to provide competitive advantage to an organization, the data itself must be complete, accurate and timely. UDig can facilitate data quality exercises, develop and execute master data management strategies and help you develop the culture and business process to set you up for long term success.

Integration & Migration

Thousands of attributes. Millions of records. Zillions of potential insights. Large data sets are the norm and few organizations really understand how to move, structure and store the data in a way that is flexible and responsive to meet business needs. We get it and will help ensure your data infrastructure is scalable to meet current and future business demands.

BI & Analytics

Most organizations heavily rely on Business Intelligence platforms to make key decisions. Sound analytics isn’t about pretty dashboards or flashy tools. It’s about having the right information at the right time to empower your team to make critical business decisions. UDig can help you optimize, architect and implement Business Intelligence solutions to put you at the helm of your decision making.

Data is absolutely one of the largest, and most underutilized, assets organizations have. We find that most of our clients need help enabling the foundational aspects of data - ensuring good quality, getting the data where it’s needed and putting it into formats where it can be acted upon. The potential to leverage data is there, we can help uncover it. -Andy Frank
