Data Strategy

Ask Better Questions. Get Better Answers.



Imagine having more accurate, more relevant, and more trustworthy answers.

Now imagine getting those answers when and where they’re needed, faster. Asking better questions about your people, products, customers, and other aspects of your business will allow you to make better decisions where they really matter.

Don’t let your next data strategy be shelfware. We will walk your organization through a structured data strategy engagement resulting in an actionable roadmap. You will know what to build, what to prioritize, and how to successfully execute a transition from your current state. 

Our data strategy helps clients answer the why so they can get to the what, when, and how.

Organizational Growth Requires Taking a Step Back

It might seem counterintuitive, but in order to grow, leaders are encouraged to take a step back. This enables them to gain perspective, and look at the bigger picture of their D&A strategy and how it’s embedded within the broader organizational teams and departments.

The Centric approach offers a business-aligned and execution-oriented roadmap that focuses on people, process, information, structure, metrics, and technology to achieve strategic goals. It is based on five pillars:

Data and analytics – or clear and reliable information – is crucial for accelerated business insight, operational excellence and competitive advantage.

Our tried-and-true approach to executing strategies and roadmaps helps translate visionary strategies into practical, pragmatic, and actionable plans. These outcomes require modern perspectives on technical architecture, engineering and design, governance, and business usability. Achieving them demands holistic planning, rigorous implementation, and a laser focus on realizing tangible benefits.

We can help you assess where you are, where you want to go, and exactly how to get there. We also understand that our client needs vary, and our custom-tailored solutions can be scaled up or down to meet needs and budget constraints.

Data privacy is paramount. There has always been an ethical duty to protect your customers’ data. Now, these ethics are enforced through a cadre of regulations attached to penalties.

At the data layer, you can ensure protection in the cloud by applying security protocol blueprints. These are designed to limit environmental gaps in security.

Some of the most common violations of data privacy occur through exposure of data within your organization. Mitigating this risk requires thoughtful design of your security through role-based access control (RBAC) and row-level security.​​

Your data strategy will recommend an approach to securing your data and controlling its distribution across the enterprise.


Data > Information > Insights > Action

Your data strategy will tell you how to take informed action to tackle your most vital business challenges. Centric will give you a custom roadmap so you can prioritize building the capabilities that get you real-world results.

Are Dashboards Really Helping?

Dashboards typically offer a retrospective on performance. Your organization is already aware of the major problems that occurred in the past.  Is it wise to invest only in dashboards when they cannot help you head off problems “at the pass”?

Focus your energy where it makes the biggest difference

Return on your data investment will grow exponentially when you tie insights to business processes and outcomes. The more your analytics impact your people, the greater your return. 

We will help you find these opportunities in places you may not have looked:

  • Process Enrichment
  • Process Reengineering
  • Automation
  • Management Accountability

Information drives profit. We will help you make this a reality. ​

We love our clients.
