The Data Value Capture: 1 Day Workshop

Wavicle Data Solutions

The Data Value Capture combines design thinking, industry/domain-specific approach, and technical expertise to identify opportunities and develop value-based roadmap for modernizing your data platform

Data is the fuel of the new economy and the driving force of the digital era and in order to take advantage of it companies increase their investment in data. According to the Gartner Group, over 90% of corporate strategies will explicitly mention data as a critical enterprise asset by 2023.

Yet, many enterprises struggle to translate high level strategies or specific business objectives into tactical roadmaps and successful designs and implementations that deliver on their promised value. Those that do – can achieve 30% higher return on data assets, Gartner believes.

Market leaders are looking for partners that can help them make their data ambitions real end to end with speed and scale. Data Value Capture helps them define approach and roadmap for data-driven migration from monolith legacy data platform to industry-specific and domain-driven distributed data architecture.

Our five-steps approach is based on

  1. Establishing/enabling strategic alignment between business and technology organizations and stakeholders with focus on tangible value capture
  2. Reconfirming the current state with emphasis on business/technical process and problem analysis
  3. Designing for the future by identifying key processes, experiences and business events and mapping them onto value drivers and key user experiences
  4. Creating future state technical architecture, including data catalogues, solution design and consumption patterns - all using standard Azure components
  5. Developing an implementation roadmap with focus on MVP, including scope, benefits, costs (including Azure Consumption estimates) and business justification

The results are truly amazing: in only 2-10 business days, depending on scope, you get

  • a shared vision for data driven cloud journey
  • set of high value scenarios mapped to the strategy
  • proposed future state architecture, timeline and effort for the first use cases (MVP)
  • a tactical roadmap to value

What really enables us to deliver such a great value to our clients in such a short time - is a set of solution accelerators that reside on Azure platform, and span from Azure Cloud Design Patterns (lift-and-shift, refactor, rearchitect/rebuild, etc.), value capture frameworks that account for the stakeholder value (e.g., customer experience), enterprise value (revenues, profitability) and sustainability, and a set of Azure-specific assets, e.g., ingestion framework with Azure MDF, data captures with MS SQL and Synapse, PowerBI visualization plug ins, and many other solution templates that reduce your time to value and de-risk your MS Azure cloud journey.
