Turn your business data into a business enabler by implementing master data management and data governance processes. Anchoring new behaviour and implementing best-fit data solutions will help you ensure lasting, sustainable performance.
Data is the core foundation of many of the current strategic imperatives, such as customer experience, process efficiency and risk and regulatory compliance, and it is an enabler of digital transformation and innovation.
As with all other corporate assets, proper governance brings structure, accountability and the right level of attention. Our framework for data governance addresses the relevant dimensions and topics to achieve successful implementation tailored to suit your needs and industry standards.
At Implement, we have performed several data governance implementations across industries and learnt which pitfalls to avoid. Behavioural change is always a focus area so as to ensure that the organisation is ready to take on the new ways of working, and both data enablement and data activation are addressed. In all our projects, we see better quality and accessibility of data and better usability and leverage of data.

What is it and why is it important for your organisation?
Master data is often considered a static element, but the truth is that master data should be consider a living organism. Data is born, maintained, updated and deleted in a continuous cycle of events that can be triggered by regulatory, performance and external factors. This requires clean and available master data for its consumers, always ready to support specific business demands.
Our framework addresses the surrounding ecosystem in which your master data resides. Building trust in data is key for creating a data-driven culture, and our framework enables a solid foundation from which critical business decision can be made.

Digitalisation or Digitisation?
Digitisation is essentially taking an existing analogue process and making it digital using IT. This is what most companies have been doing for the last decades. The benefits consist of increased speed through automation, increased quality through validation and increased availability through digital processes. As the process is digital, it will be reflected in master data and transactional data.
Digitalisation, on the other hand, could be described as the creation of new or improved products, services and customer experiences through insights from data. This aspires to business transformation, helping companies fuel their growth ambitions. But to address digitalisation in a meaningful way, data first needs to be made available in a robust way through digitisation. A digital strategy needs to be a data-driven digital strategy.
Digital transformation is about connecting business with digital disciplines and skills and thereby creating new business, processes and customer experiences. Our ambition is to transform data from a blocking point to an enabler for your strategy.
We focus on your vision and strategy, which enable you to identify digital focus areas, establish the foundation for a data-driven future and create a real digital strategy.
Our well-tested framework and methodology enable you to work methodically and structurally with your digital business transformation. Together, we emphasise focus and content, so that we can bring both the market and customers as well as the organisation and employees along on the journey.
Conversations might be the smallest biggest thing in making real sustainable change.
