Data & Analytics Consulting
It’s no secret that data is one of the most valuable assets on the planet, and the way to turn data into value is through data science. Thanks to advances in data technology, companies and government agencies can make up-to-date data-driven decisions, instead of decisions based on instinct. Transforming into a data-driven organization can be a daunting task, however, as you navigate multiple vendors and complex solutions across your IT infrastructure. Also, some enterprises don’t know how to collect the proper data, store and secure it, or best analyze it to use to their advantage. Zobo taps into a wellspring of experience in this area, as we help you build a comprehensive and tailored data enterprise strategy, resulting in a high-performing data environment.
Enterprise Data Strategy
Craft a data strategy in line with your top to bottom organizational goals. We provide accessible data for various use-cases, such as analytics, reporting, data science, and operations. Our upgrades encompass physical, digital, and communication systems, including cultural shifts. We deliver a coherent, cross-departmental data strategy that gains buy-in from stakeholders, maximizing the value of your data transformation.
Accessing high-quality data is crucial for uncovering key insights. We design data collection tools and processes, generating rich datasets tailored to your needs. Our expertise covers various topics like customer feedback, staffing, usage statistics, and economic conditions. Our analysts excel at cleaning and wrangling diverse datasets, ensuring accurate foundations for all analyses, and delivering reliable insights.
Transition from outdated or siloed legacy systems to cloud-based tools, unlocking expanded data access and storage capabilities. Data modernization empowers organizations through elasticity (resource optimization), enhanced data handling, automated pipelines, and access to advanced tooling. This facilitates faster higher-quality data and reduces human and economic resources required for tasks.
Effectively manage the flow of data across your enterprise via well-implemented data architecture. Data architecture outlines data storage and management across the data lifecycle phases: collection, extraction, transformation, distribution, and consumption. Our architectural designs provide a user-friendly foundation for data processing, AI applications, and enables powerful cross-source analysis.
Establish data standards and compliance policies to safeguard your organization’s data. Data security protocols protect against unauthorized access or corruption, preventing costly mishaps. Our comprehensive standards cover data visualization, format, definition, structuring, tagging, transmission, manipulation, and use. Our standards ensure data integrity, efficient handling, and effective presentation.
Transform data from various sources into actionable insights using visualization tools like Tableau, Cognos, and Microsoft Power BI. In addition, draw on Zobo’s data visualization and software development expertise via custom-designed web-based interactive visualizations and data applications. Use the power of impactful visualization to educate and persuade your audience in meaningful ways.
Create compelling narratives using statistical insights from complex datasets. Data visualization alone may not effectively convey messages, especially to non-experts. Data storytelling bridges this gap by translating findings for specific audiences, properly influencing and informing them. Well-crafted stories enhance user engagement, and facilitates quicker and more confident decision-making.
Achieve strategic alignment and desired outcomes led by our PMI and Agile certified managers. We implement resource-efficient best practices, assembling project teams guided by our data managers. Through effective collaboration within timelines and budgets, projects progress swiftly. We ensure regular client communication via check-ins, project reporting, and planning exercises.
