Data

Data Services

Find the value.  Release the power.

Advances in technology enable all businesses to generate and access growing volumes of data.  BlackCat Data Services help you find the value of your data and release its potential to make better decisions.

  • You don't trust your data and can't use it to make decisions
  • You're wasting time managing multiple data sets in multiple systems
  • There's no joined-up processes or tools to share and collaborate across functions and data sets

How we help

Your data can provide insights to better understand your customers and drive the business forward.  However in order to become more data-driven, it’s essential to be able to manage, standardise and analyse all data sets throughout your organisation.

BlackCat  consultants, analysts and architects have the experience to help you realise the value of your data.  We help you define your data strategy and provide recommendations regarding governance and security. Crucially, we also have the skills to develop and deliver the enabling technologies and architecture. 

Data lakes are a fast-evolving enabler for increasing business insights from data. Find out here how BlackCat can help you decide if a lake is right for you and how to go about creating one.

We work with you

We explore what decisions could be made faster, more accurately and more effectively using the data being collected. That’s the way to unlock its full potential.

We take time to understand who needs to access the data and why.

We look at who owns the various datasets historically and in the future.

We help define data taxonomies and ontologies in order to standardise understanding across the business.

We recommend best practice for policies and procedures to enable on-going data management and governance.

We design and deliver a secure and robust technology architecture to manage your data environment.

  • Realise better value from your data
  • Use it to work out better ways of delivering better customer experiences
  • Increase collaboration and insights across the entire business
