• I believe that data governance and data quality can grow your business by:

    - helping you to increase your revenues.

    - helping you to decrease your expenses.


    How can it do that? That's where I come in.


    My process:

    • Review your current approach and get a thorough understanding of your business' requirements.
    • Identify the gaps between where you are and where you need to be.  
    • Identify some "quick wins" so you can demonstrate prompt payback.
    • Develop a longer term plan to get you to a desirable steady state.
    • Support you on the journey to a sustainable future.

    Let's start with a no-obligation conversation to see how I can help you.


    My promise: If I can't help you, I won't pretend to - but I will endeavour to point you in the right direction and introduce you to someone who can.



  • GDPR

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming on 25 May, 2018.

    Is your organisation impacted?

    GDPR applies to any company, inside or outside the EU, that offers goods and services to European citizens. The British Government has confirmed that Brexit does not let the UK off the hook!


    So the answer to the question is, most likely, yes.

    Two fundamental questions that you will need to answer

    1. Where is my data?
    2. Who is responsible for that data?

    How Datazed can help

    Many of the challenges around identifying your data have been addressed through data governance programmes and other regulatory drivers such as Solvency II, Basel III and BCBS 239.
