Ascent’s Highlighter engagements are designed to get you moving by breaking down the data challenge into small, digestible blocks that require minimal commitment.

We use impact mapping to build a clear view of the relationships between your data, stakeholders, users and business objectives. We then use this framework to create an accessible technical plan for a Proof of Concept that clearly demonstrates ROI for your organisation. Leveraging Azure, we focus on driving new ways to make faster, more informed decisions. Transform distributed and unmanageable data into a streamlined data warehouse, creating new insight and capabilities. Our Team focus on data analysis, data cleansing, data aggregation & summarisation and on-demand KPIs, reporting and dashboarding.


Microsoft and Ascent have worked on some of the largest data projects in the UK, helping businesses create real-world value from petabytes of data. We’ll work with you to get the most out of Azure services within your data architecture, exploring data types, sources, location, validity and links to your business processes. We'll help you create a differentiated vibrant ecosystem of experiences and customer interactions leveraging Azure capabilities and cognitive services.
