In a world inundated with data, companies are becoming proficient at collecting information, but most still struggle to convert data into actionable insight, and insight into tangible business value. Fortunately, realizing value from your data is possible. Leading companies with mature Data & Analytics (D&A) strategies are harnessing the power of data by accessing multiple internal and external data sources and breaking down silos within the organization as they do so.

Begin with a maturity assessment and road map
If you want to transform into a more data-enabled enterprise, start by looking at what you already have in place. KPMG’s D&A Strategic Transformation team can benchmark your D&A maturity by identifying existing capabilities as well as tangible opportunities for improvement. The maturity assessment begins with reviews of current analytics tools, customer-facing services, and internal applications. During the process, KPMG can uncover gaps in technology, data, process, and organizational structure, then identify a road map for advancement through action to help provide the highest return on investment. KPMG’s D&A maturity assessments and road maps have been applied to companies across a range of industries and provide an evidence-based, transferable, and objective view of D&A activity.
