Increasing the value of data

Glue Reply partners with organisations to increase the value of their data through defining ingestion frameworks, data management services, and data democratisation to enable the development and delivery of data services, products, and solutions.

Efficient data management services are at the heart of data ecosystems and are the key to unlocking the value of data. These services enable a business to be in control of their data, delivering access to key data assets across the enterprise, raising quality, and trust in data.

Data Strategy

Having a strategy for data is a key foundation within any organisation however it is one that is often overlooked. Glue Reply works alongside its clients to advise them on their data strategy with the primary purpose of ensuring that data adds value to the organisation while being consistent, secure, timely and accurate.

Glue Reply has a proven methodology for developing a data strategy and implementing it, this goes well beyond technology and considers the changes that need to be adopted within organisations across Culture, People, Process, Technology and Governance.

Data Ecosystem

Having a single, consistent enterprise-wide understanding of customers, products and services is an everyday challenge for many organisations.

A data ecosystem, provides key functionality to underpin and enable the development of data products such as ‘single customer view’ enabling the organisation to increase the value of data through harmonisation of all data available internally and externally.

Glue Reply partners with organisations and leverages best practice of agile delivery approaches to realise value and early benefit through incremental development. This enables organisations to prioritise specific data products aligned to their strategy and vision to incrementally unlock insight from and increase value of data.

Data Management

Driving real change in an organisation's approach to data has historically been the primary blocker to unlocking value and improving quality. This is often due to the lack of pragmatic and effective data management services in addition to no clear mandate for centralised data services.

Glue Reply partners with organisations to address this, specifically by defining the value and terms of reference for the data management services required to transform your data swamp into an enriched data lake.

Taking the organisation and key stakeholder groups on a journey to maturity is key to ensure that value is realised, Glue Reply ensures this by effectively implementing the foundations and then building incrementally on these key data capabilities.
