Data Quality

Quality boosters: your data on steroids.

Data quality and data trust, two concepts that haunt countless businesses day and night. Would you build your house if you knew that your foundations were rotten? Probably not… For data-driven solutions it is the same issue. If you want to build solutions up from the foundations, you need to make sure that these are of high quality and can be trusted.

  • We define the data quality goals (agreeing on KPI’s & metrics) and set-up the dashboard to keep track during and after the quality booster project.
  • We define the DQF (data quality framework) together with you.

Dashboarding

Navigational maps to stay on course.

Any good captain does not start his journey without a navigational map. Although the route may not be exact, he has some anchor points he can refer to, to check that he is still on course towards his end goal. Running a successful company is not different. Before you start any project, you need to mark your end goal. To make sure you stay on the right track you define measure points and performance indicators, so you need to set-up the right KPIs and metrics. Reports and dashboards allow you to follow-up on your current status or provide you with the necessary insights to adapt your course.

We draw your data navigation map:

  • We define KPIs and metrics you need to steer your business.
  • We set the measure points.
  • We build the reports and dashboarding in the tools that are best fitted for the purpose.
  • We show the navigational tricks to your employees.
  • You’re good to sail off yourself and will always have HighMind on call when you get lost.

Data Governance

Set the rules of the data game

When you speak about data-driven solutions, you speak about data governance. Your solution will only remain sustainable for the long run if you have set the game rules. Before you play a game, the rules must be clear and someone should be watching over it that these are followed. HighMind can develop your data governance model that has the right balance between the offensive and defensive approach and adapt the model according to the different business purposes.

We help you set the rules of the game:

  • We prioritise the business areas where improved data governance will bring the most immediate benefit.
  • Build the team: we create roles, responsibilities and rules.
  • We define the data maintenance requirements.
  • We define the monitoring model.
  • Run, test, adapt.
  • Once the first business areas are up-and running, we can role out to the rest of the organisation.
