A clear, streamlined integration of decision-making processes, using your corporate knowledge and information assets, will deliver to your 'evidence-based management' aspirations.
Corporate knowledge is essentially an effective understanding of your own information, built by using your own operational data assets. Our stakeholders and customers and the regulators expect objective, trustworthy data governance structures and reporting.
Data quality is often misunderstood. Mostly poor data quality tends to be treated as a ‘fait accompli’ and any wholesale change to improve it, as an expensive business impediment.
At Anchoram, we have developed a radically different approach to data quality management. Our methodology maps an operational framework that ranks high-usage and high-value data. It provides a vastly improved return on investment and pleasingly, the ability to contain data quality costs.
To accurately identify and value information/data holdings, you need to ensure that the data flow, both within and outside your organisation, is optimised to enable the best ‘fit for purpose’ data available for decision making processes.
Anchoram Consulting’s associates use data/information audits to deliver and develop models which help to analyse and gain predictive insights from multiple data streams.
Retention legislation is becoming more complex. There are significant penalties for poor compliance, as well as the added costs of not sentencing data appropriately. There is also an increased expectation for privacy and data re-identification, as well as controls around public data sharing and intelligence sharing between agencies.
Anchoram Consulting’s associates have worked on numerous engagements across Federal, State and Territory archives, intimately understanding the various related legislations and relevant technical standards, including the Australian Government Record-keeping Metadata Standard.
Data and associated databases are the foundation for all efficient business decisions.
How data is ingested and stored, and what it means to use consistent definitions and standards. How data relates to the business and maintains known structures for important data holdings, are all key questions for effective intelligence and streamlined data management.
At Anchoram Consulting, we have developed a framework that allows organisations to configure and assess the corporate value of each database to:
Visualisation is well recognised tool to show trends and insights in a way that lists, and conventional reports can fail to highlight.
This approach minimises traditional and dated paper-based ways of disseminating information. However, poorly designed dashboards can also be a lost opportunity for senior management to be able to see the ‘big picture’ and enable strategic conversations and decision making.
Anchoram Consulting’s associates understand the value of data science and are experienced in the contemporary tools and technologies that deliver data visualisation to highlight what is essential and enable management to access critical information and insights across various platforms including desktop and mobile.
Business intelligence means knowing when to change or reinforce a decision to better utilise resource and investment returns.
A key component of business intelligence is its integrity. Effective business intelligence in an organisation is achieved by the culmination of various components, including both technological and organisational (e.g. data governance).
Anchoram Consulting associates have extensive experience in providing consulting services around designing and implementing enterprise data warehousing solutions, including architectures such as data lakes.
