CASE-STUDY_Governance & Compliance

Achieving business value faster from new AI & data services.

Our enterprise reinsurance customer needed to develop, approve and rollout new data and AI-centric product services quickly, but was facing months of security, compliance and business user uptake delays.

Targeting staff efficiency, churn mitigation and customer satisfaction improvements worth millions of Euros, we first prioritised the new AI products and framework architectures. We co-created and approved a modernised corporate enterprise data governance policy, specifying advanced data governance, cataloguing and lineage product configurations for business teams.

We helped the customer’s Compliance Assurance function bridge the gap between legacy processes and new ways of working with AI and business data. This ultimately underpinned their submissions to data and prudential regulators, pre-approving use of the new services. Applying our sector, security, technical and compliance expertise, we helped the customer save months of potential delays and rapidly realise ROI.

Data policies.

Create clear data guidelines for your organisation, promoting transparency and ethical practices.

Data policies are crucial for safeguarding sensitive information, assuring regulatory compliance, maintaining trust with customers and supporting responsible data management. Many organisations however lack usable data policies, or struggle with adoption and embedding the behaviours required to drive business value.

We kick-start your data governance maturity process by working with your Infosec, Risk and Legal teams to build the appropriate data categories, classifications and handling policies before creating robust roll-out plans to drive adoption.

Self-service data and insight.

Empower employees to safely access and analyse data on their terms, promoting collaboration and accelerating decision-making.

Self-service data enhances business agility, reduces reliance on IT and promotes data-driven collaboration across departments and units. But when it comes to implementation, many organisations haven’t fully thought through their self-service strategy, and often build it in isolation from their technology or core data strategy.

We help you define and build out the key assets and processes that support a self-service culture in a central hub, enabling data exploitation at pace across your business.

Data catalogue and lineage.

Understand and use your defined data more confidently.

Data catalogues and lineage provide businesses with a clear understanding of their data assets. Catalogues organise and describe data to make discovery easier and quicker. Lineage traces data’s origin and transformations, providing context that supports more accurate decision-making.

We help you define and implement data catalogues, dictionaries and glossaries to give your business access to a consistent set of data terms, an understanding of where data has originally come from and the relevant compliance and governance policies that apply to your specific datasets.

Monitoring and deployment.

Maintain data governance standards and resolve outages rapidly.

Many businesses don’t know they have data issues until it is too late. Proactively monitoring your data is essential for identifying anomalies, managing performance and maintaining data quality. Monitoring mitigates risks and maintains the integrity of data infrastructure, contributing to overall business resilience.

We build DataOps capabilities into our pipelines as standard, with platform-level logging and monitoring to manage availability and redundancy. We also help you track solution compliance against both end-user requirements and data governance standards.
