In-flight projects provide data opportunities

Almost every internal project needs data and provides an opportunity to start your data platform journey.

Committing to large scale programmes with the price tag to match can prove cost prohibitive. System upgrades or new integrations are ideal opportunities to begin the staged process of implementing a modern data platform.



Focus on an incremental approach

Break down the platform adoption into prioritised projects, aligned with the overall business strategy.
