In today’s business world, data and analytics drive every decision made. Implementation, however, requires intentionality.


Episode six part 1

A company realizes its way behind the technology curve on data. The world runs on data, and they’re moving at a slow walk. We need to do something, but what?

In this episode of the Centric Biz and Tech Talks podcast, we talk with Carlos Cruz, Jeremy Gruenwald, Sean Neben, and Ted Perez about how they took a client through the assessment of their data and analytics architecture, working toward a roadmap that drives the implementation of an enterprise solution.

During our conversation, we talk about what the client expected to get at the end of the work and what steps the team took from beginning to end. We discuss the challenges they faced. Were these typical challenges for this type of job, or were these something unusual?

We also talk about what approach they took in identifying technology to use as part of the solution. Finally, we address the length of time a project like this takes.

Our team’s experience spans the critical roles of a project like this, including the data architect, an expert in the company’s industry, and a project manager keeping the initiative on the right track. They each present their view of the work and what it meant to overall success.

Join us in our discussion to hear what it took to make this assessment project a success!
