Business-driven data strategy

Data strategy is a plan derived from company’s business strategy to control and utilize its data the best way possible. Company ensures with one, that its data management capabilities are enabling it to achieve its business objectives.

Data strategy answers the questions: what company is intended to achieve with data and how to get to those targets. At Loihde Advisory we have a saying: “Data first, then digital”. By this we mean that taking the digital leap is only possible if data has been taken care of first.

Creating a data strategy requires both understanding business’s information needs and knowledge about the technologies that would allow to achieve the goals. Technologies are changing, but data remains. Therefore, creating a data strategy depends upon close collaboration with both business management and IT professionals.
