Predoole | Data Strategy - To leverage all critical Business Information

Gain Value from your Data Assets

Capturing Data from all relevant sources in an enterprise and transforming it into a form to drive actionable business analytics for decision makers.

Why does a company need a data strategy

If a company has no competition and can continue operating in an environment of assured profits and no or low competition, they do not have to bother about data. 

However, if they are in a competitive environment, then it is imperative to have an understanding of their customers, suppliers and to operate efficiently.

One of the steps that customers take in this direction is to install an ERP system such as SAP. Operational systems streamline the day to day operations. However you can derive real value from such a system only if you convert this data in an understandable format and put it in context of other data in your enterprise such as CRM data, industry consortium data, stock market data etc. 

Data Strategy is needed to avoid the clutter and confusion where each department collects bits and pieces of dirty data and multiple copies of the same data is floating over the enterprise. It empowers the management to have a complete view of the customer, operations and cost benefit tradeoffs  to make decisions confidently.
