V2- CASE-STUDY_Application Development

Global leader in charging infrastructure.

Re-aligning a data capability to business stakeholders and ensuring business value is achieved.

Like many organisations, our customer had embarked on a data transformation programme. Despite initial expectations, the customer’s business stakeholders were failing to get the velocity, and value, out of data that they were expecting. Ascent was brought in to refresh the strategy, re-engage with the stakeholders to create alignment, and identify gaps in the customer’s operating model, and governance.

Within six weeks, our team was able to create a clear short, medium and long-term delivery roadmap which promised significant value, assessing the technical architecture and performing a gap analysis on the data team, as well as generating buy-in with the stakeholders to drive their strategic objectives, and enable the business to begin its journey as a data aggregator and insight seller.

Strategy and vision.

Create a clear vision for your data and AI capabilities and an efficient route to your target state.

Buy-in and sponsorship from business stakeholders is a common challenge in the data space. We work with your stakeholders to understand the opportunities they see within their business units, and the data pain points they face day-to-day.

This discovery enables our consultants to design an actionable data strategy that spans technical infrastructure, operating models, governance and business value realisation. We map data and AI initiatives to business objectives, shaping and guiding your investments and forecasting RoI.

Using ideation and planning frameworks, we work with you to create short, medium, and long-term data and AI roadmaps for your business, identifying the capability, technology, process and operational changes required to ensure success.

AI adoption.

Understand, build and implement the frameworks, policies, processes and guardrails that support enterprise AI adoption.

Building one or two AI solutions is tactically straightforward, but adopting AI at scale and creating new enterprise capabilities in an ethical, transparent, sustainable way is a challenge most businesses are yet to resolve.

Our AI consultants set up the right technical, governance and ethical frameworks to support your AI adoption, helping you overcome barriers like data complexity, reducing bias and hallucination and prioritising model explainability, whilst addressing gaps in internal skillsets and tools.

Data governance.

Safely leverage your data assets to their maximum value inside a governance framework that works for you.

Supporting a distributed ecosystem of data and analytics assets is no small undertaking. Governance frameworks set out the roles and policies required to ensure that the right people are assigned the right data responsibilities.

We work with you to assess your data governance maturity and identify relevant or significant gaps, for example in relation to regulatory requirements. We then collaboratively create and implement a data governance framework geared to support the delivery of your data strategy and mature your overall capability.

Operating model.

Select and implement an operating model geared to support the velocity of your business teams.

Misaligned operating models have the potential to inhibit growth and scale. Businesses that have moved too quickly to self-service without the correct guardrails, standards and processes in place now face significant technical debt. Others that have designed operating models isolated from technology strategy are now struggling to deliver live data products.

We work with your teams to determine and implement the right data operating model, prioritising standardisation to support the development of new capabilities at pace.
