Are you ready to face your data deamons?
Situation: Complexity and scarcity
Organizations are dealing with increasing complexity: the number of IT systems, the amount of data, the processes, products, etc. have grown exponentially over the years and are continuously changing.
It is increasingly difficult to attract and retain data experts. Data expert demand is far higher than the supply, leading to scarcity of data experts. For specific data challenges, the resource needs are highly specific and may also vary over time.
Challenge: Finding the right level of expertise, in the right amount, at the right time
To unlock the true value of data within an organization, different data experts are needed.
Developing a data strategy or increasing the data maturity in an organization can be done with the help of data governance experts. For data platform modernization projects, you might need data architects, data analysts, data engineers and specialists in certain technologies like data warehouse automation, cloud, CDC, real-time data warehousing, data lakehouse, … To gain the right analytical insights from the data, you need data visualization experts, which is another skill set. For advanced analytics data scientists and ML engineers come in handy. Project managers are needed to steer projects according to scope, timing and budget. Enterprise Architects can help gain transparency, get a grip on the (IT) landscape and ensure IT budget is allocated in terms of business value.
Even if the right level of expertise is found, it is not always sufficient to achieve the objectives. You might need more – or sometimes less- expertise, and this changes over time.
