Take a look through our short videos to see how our propositions can help you and your business manage your data effectively.


Data Governance

For confidence and trust in your data you need the right data governance in place. Richard Petley, Data Governance Lead at PwC talks through the issues you may be facing and how we, at PwC, can make sure effective data governance is at the heart of your business.

 

Data drives key business decisions, and for confidence and trust in that data you need effective data governance. But complex organisational models and one-size-fits-all policies often fail to manage what’s important.

What’s needed, is a clearer picture.

Managing the risk in data is essential, but great data governance goes far beyond this, and develops an environment which realises the full potential data can have for your business. It recognises the context in which your business operates and the way it’s run; and acknowledges that data priorities can change to reflect strategic and operational ones. It makes best use of existing company structure and processes to ensure that effective data management behaviour is at the heart of your business. It also knows that not all data is equal, and that its management should be prioritised so the most important data gets the attention it deserves.

If your organization is facing a crisis of confidence in data and you can’t trust what you see or if you wish to improve business performance; talk to us about what data governance can do for you.


Process Assurance and Risk Analytics

Using data effectively can make the difference between success and failure. Andy Howe, Process Assurance and Analytics Lead at PwC talks through how with Process Assurance and Risk Analytics we can use your data to provide the evidence and confidence to help you make better and informed decisions for your business.

 

We have more data now than ever before, and better tools for analysis. Using data effectively can make the difference between success and failure in business.

Do you worry about how to analyse your data? Maybe you don't trust what your reports are showing, and can't measure the efficiency or effectiveness of your processes. To keep a step ahead of uncertainty you need a clearer understanding of what your data is telling you.

Process Assurance and Risk analytics uses your data and others to provide the evidence and confidence to make informed decisions. Using good quality data and robust analysis enables you to join the dots between your data, systems and processes, and understand the moments that matter when you and your people’s behaviours have a real impact on your business.

We can show you what happened, when it happened, why it happened, who did it and what the potential impact is. So if your organisation isn’t making the most of systems and process analytics, and you need smarter technologies that drive better business decisions; talk to us what process assurance and risk analytics can do for you.


Intelligent Data Framework

It's important to effectively integrate and standardise your business data. Adrian Hughes, Director at PwC, outlines how PwC's Intelligent Data Framework could help you and your business.

In today’s complex organisation, effectively integrating and standardising data from across the business is vital to enable accurate and trustworthy analysis, from which you can drive insight and make critical decisions. But accessing consistent data, at the right time and from multiple systems across the enterprise can be challenging. That’s where PwC’s Intelligent Data Framework comes in.

The framework is an approach and methodology that integrates data from multiple sources using an enterprise-wide common language or taxonomy. Using a data centric and iterative approach, rather than being led by technology, makes it more agile and sustainable to help unlock information value throughout the business.

Embedding a data consciousness into your organisation’s culture and behaviours, ensures better processes, better decisions and better outcomes for your business. If your organisation needs help to create an environment that provides quality, consistent and available data to drive insight, performance and control, speak to us about what the PwC Intelligent Data Framework can do for you.


Management Information Confidence 

With no shortage of data in today's business environment Adrian Hughes, Director at PwC, explains how confidence in your data is key to success. Are you asking the right questions?

 

There’s no shortage of data in today’s business environment, but this is of little use unless you feel confident using it in your decision making. Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for developing management information. Each organisation needs its own tailored approach for its reporting and performance measurement.

Developing this approach begins with asking the right questions of your data. You need to think holistically across the business about the priority metrics that will best indicate performance and linking these to corporate strategy. Next, you must make sure you have access to data of sustaining quality through securing the integrity of your data sources and establishing overall governance of your data.

Optimising your processes, having the right controls, technology, roles and responsibilities will be critical. It’s only now with the right KPIs and data processes established, that you can interpret and act upon your reporting. And establish a culture that exploits management information to its full potential and provides you with actionable insight.

If your organisation would like to make bolder, more informed, and more rapid decisions than your competitors, talk to us about what Management Information Confidence can do for you.

Social media Governance

With the explosion of data created through social media, it is fast becoming one of the most essential tools a business can have. PwC's Phil Mennie, social media governance leader, talks through how PwC can help your business create a tailored approach to your social media strategy.

With the explosion of data created through social media, it is fast becoming one of the most essential tools a business can have. Social media has opened up discussion and debate on a global scale. It is this platform that has created a stage for potential praise, promotion and disruption of your business’ people, products and performance. Because this data is created and accessible globally, good governance is extremely important - to analyse and control the amount of data that is created.

So how can we help?

Using a list of trigger points, we'll take a stringent review of your social media. We'll work to put a rigorous governance programme in place to manage the risks that might arise from social media but also help you make the most of the opportunities it brings. Good governance will enhance the capability of all those involved and structure a coordinated use of social media across the entire business.

Social media is here to stay, and we can help your organisation fully embrace it, by growing board level awareness, protecting your reputation and fostering greater engagement with you, and your people. If your organisation is missing a harnessed and tailored approach to its social media opportunities, speak to us about what social media governance can do for you.
