Our Case Studies for

Data Architecture and Governance Strategy

Our Methodology

for Data Architecture and Governance Strategy

The process starts with an assessment of current data issues. What are the challenges with current data? Are the issues due to the underlying streams of data? Or due to architectural and process issues? Depending upon the root cause of the issues, an appropriate strategy and roadmap is developed along with master data governance processes.


This phase performs a quick analysis to pinpoint the root cause and potential options with their pros and cons. The analysis is done through a series of demonstrations, workshops, and analysis.

Governance Model and Plan

This is a collaborative phase that builds a plan for the governance model that could include any process changes for the necessary controls, user training, and policies & procedures for ongoing compliance.


This step focuses on any improvements that can be made after implementing the changes. The phase monitors any deviations from original policies and makes further arrangements to ensure data quality.

Detailed Analysis

This phase takes a much deeper dive into the potential options identified in step 1 and plans out a strategy that could include changes in the process, data cleaning exercises, and system replacement.


Depending on the changes required, the length of this phase would vary. This phase would be a series of biweekly sprints that will go through structured changes across systems and processes to enable these changes.
