Data Strategy Guide

Learn how to unlock investment and put data at the heart of your organisation’s future through a business-led data strategy.

This guide will help you put in place the structure you need to ensure you use your data to achieve your business strategy.

The Data Strategy Challenge

At Oakland, we know a thing or two about creating successful data strategies. Drawing on our decades of expertise, we’ve honed a practical and successful approach to creating and implementing a data strategy that puts data at the heart of your organisation’s future.

Your data strategy should set the vision, detailed strategy, and roadmap to explain how your organisation will use its data and analytics to realise your business objectives.

Done properly a data strategy will unite data-driven activity behind a clear set of business-aligned goals with a compelling vision and case for change to drive engagement and adoption.

Oakland has successfully planned, delivered, and implemented data strategies for some of the most complex data landscapes in the UK.
