Use Data As A Strategic Asset

A mid-size retailer embarked on a new project to modernise their Data & Analytics platforms, to support their planned business expansion and take use of data to another level.  They had an existing on-premise SQL Data store with Excel used as a reporting tool but was manual and didn’t leverage the potential of the data assets.  Initiative sponsored by the CEO and driven by the CFO involved.
