Avanade - Enterprise Data Strategy

Student: Conor Lynch, 2019-2020

Sponsor: Avanade, Seattle, WA

Many large enterprises struggle to effectively leverage data across the whole organisation. This can lead to different departments in a company working with different data sets, creating siloes of information. When a company doesn’t have an effective strategy in place for utilizing the data they have, they miss an opportunity to create value, both within the company and for consumers.

This project will focus on providing a comprehensive recommendation for how companies can eradicate these data siloes and leverage data across the whole organisation. It will also investigate how modern design processes exacerbate data siloes. The project will quantify the value enterprises can derive by having an effective data strategy in place and show the value they are missing out on by not implementing this strategy.
