Every organization generates and stores more data than they know what to do with. With big data comes big responsibility. It requires cleansing, standardization, maintenance, governance, and perhaps most importantly, an action plan for use.
The practice of Data Management describes and defines the many ways businesses capture, manage, preserve, store, and deliver the right data-driven information to the right people at the right time. This does not happen by accident.
LPA supports our clients with data stewardship to enforce consistency and data availability across their enterprise. We do this by staging and preparing data so that it is ready to be analyzed, architecting solutions to ensure optimal performance, security, and compliance—both on-premises and in the cloud—and bringing together the right mix of technology, information systems, business process, and people needed for data to be an organizational game-changer.
Most clients have some form of a Data Management strategy in place, but few are executing it well. And that is understandable given the sheer volume and complexity that both structured and unstructured data present. LPA can help. Our consultation and implementation services in data management include:
Data Health Check - We begin by performing an overall data health check to diagnose its current state and make recommendations for improvement.
Data Governance Readiness Assessment - We will help you assess the maturity of your Information Supply chain, and provide recommendations for implementing Data Governance processes and technologies.
Cleansing data of incomplete or inaccurate records is a critical first step before any meaningful analysis can occur. We apply best practices and ETL methods to standardize and prepare data for use.
As your trusted partner, our team will handle the full design and implementation of your data management plan and determine how it will be operationalized throughout the organization.
