Building a future-ready data architecture

Accenture helped a global collaboration technology company develop an architecture that enabled scalable and trusted reporting of metrics.

Ask

Approaching its IPO, a leading technology unicorn was challenged to establish trust in the accuracy of its data. Its internal data systems grew up in siloes with no centralized governance process or data architecture. To address this, the company sought the help of Accenture to build a fast, flexible and future-ready data architecture that would provide accuracy in managing and communicating business performance.

Action

Accenture helped the company map the lineage of all its existing data and metrics and conducted interviews with data owners to capture the true “as-is” state of its data management. After this, we pulled all the data from the company’s data lake and fed it into a new data store based on a fully relational, as-a-service Snowflake data warehouse.

Result

Through the new data architecture, the company can now access key business data instantly, complete with sleek and user-friendly dashboards.

Software and Platform

The result was a dramatic boost in the company’s confidence in its own data, especially as it approached its IPO.

What we think

Data is everywhere today, growing constantly and enabling unprecedented insights. Becoming data-driven is the new table stakes for enterprise success.

CDOs are expected to serve as change agents, straddling easily between technology and business agenda.
