No matter your industry, your business must be guided by data, not by your gut feeling. Data is the way to strengthen your position, whether it's optimizing processes, making predictions, or improving service to your customers.
Discover the power of data
In recent years, we have witnessed an explosion of data. Many organizations are already adept at handling this enormous amount of data. However, merely "handling" it is no longer sufficient. When you use data correctly, you can extract incredible amounts of value from it.
Future-proof with ML and AI
But where do you start? Research firms like Gartner indicate that you should work with Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). In practice, we already see valuable applications of these technologies, such as smart chatbots, predictive analytics using sensors, ChatGPT writing your email marketing, or an online store that accurately predicts and serves what the consumer wants in real-time. All of this is quickly normalizing.
This might sound exciting, but where do you stand? Is your data foundation ready to get started with this? Or are you still dealing with a fragmented data landscape?
The biggest challenge in extracting value from AI and ML is having high-quality data. Without it, you waste a tremendous amount of time and energy (which is a shame!). Therefore, a healthy data foundation with high-quality data is necessary and provides you with a proper basis to accelerate with AI and ML.
Data maturity model
To harness the immense potential of data, you need the right strategy, competencies, and processes. You determine how far you are in this journey based on the so-called "data maturity" model. This refers to the level at which you effectively collect, interpret, and translate data into actionable insights and intelligent applications to achieve your objectives.
We notice that many companies' challenges lie in "data mining." The goldmine is in sight, but extracting the ore and turning it into gold is another story. At Incentro, we have learned how to find and utilize that data goldmine.
Getting started with data
Through a data maturity scan, we assess where you currently stand and where you want to go. We clarify how you can take the next step and what this will yield for you. For example, we ensure that all data is well-organized and accessible to both IT and the business, align your data strategy with business objectives, or prepare the data for making predictions and acting on them with AI.
