Five steps to data modernization success

2021-06-11 16:36:00| The Webmail Blog

Five steps to data modernization success nellmarie.colman Fri, 06/11/2021 - 09:36   To move your business to the top of your industry, you need to deliver superior customer experiences, create new revenue streams and make fast, strategic decisions. And todays modern data capabilities make this possible so you can deliver business insights that drive real innovation, speed and flexibility. But few companies have been able to make the foundational shifts necessary, to achieve such outcomes. According to a report by McKinsey Digital, even though 70% of financial institutions have had a modern data architecture roadmap in place for 18-24 months, almost half still have disparate data models. And most have integrated only a quarter of their critical data into their target architecture. To achieve data modernization success, you need to get the right data, to the right application, at the right business moment, while delivering a new level of business insights. If youre relying on disparate data models and outdated data architectures, youre setting yourself up for data quality issues which ultimately adds complexity and cost and holds you back from achieving your target outcomes. But by taking five key steps, you can deliver and continually optimize your modern data architecture. This forms the foundation for innovation, superior customer experiences, business insights, real-time agility and the ability to make the most of modern cloud native applications.   Step 1: Data discovery Start by getting your team on board. Focus on understanding the high-level data issues and goals, and brainstorm ideas about how to drive a better data architecture that satisfies business and application demands now and in the future.   Step 2: Data architecture assessment Understand your current data architecture in depth, including what data is available and what is needed by business processes and applications. Identify use cases to focus on, as well as their high-level architecture. Define the strategy and roadmap.   Step 3: Data architecture and engineering This is where the strategy and roadmap are implemented. Design the overall architecture including which clouds, technologies and platforms to be used. Develop pipelines to ingest, transform and store data. Build out data lakes, marts and platforms as needed to implement the modern data architecture. Work with cloud native application development and operations teams.   Step 4: Business intelligence and reporting Now its time to turn your data into actionable results. Define your data models, build dashboards with real-time refreshes and automate reporting.   Step 5: DataOps Set up a virtuous cycle of continuous improvement and innovation. This involves an orchestration of people, processes and technology to deliver trusted, high-quality data. With a DataOps approach, you can create predictable delivery and change management of data, data models and related artifacts. This includes: Data lifecycle process framework - Incorporates DevOps, agile development and statistical process controls. Collaborative data management practice - Improves communication, integration and automation. Cloud platform and tooling - Orchestrates and automates security, quality and metadata.   Expert guidance for your data modernization journey With Rackspace Data Modernization, you can build intelligent applications and experiences, drive targeted real-time action, and make predictive, data-driven decisions that accelerate innovation and increase ROI.
