Transform your data into a revenue generator

Published on Wednesday, 16th August 2017, contributed by Six

Are you using data to help grow your business?

Many businesses are sitting on a data goldmine, but not necessarily exploiting the value of the data they have.

Here at Six, we've partnered with fellow Bristol-based data consultancy Data3 to look at ways organisations can get started and to help recognise the value in digging deeper into the analytics they have available. Helen Tanner at Data3 has worked with various types of businesses to transform their data into revenue generators. And the results have been impressive.

Helen loves data.

“I believe that all business decisions should be data-driven or data-informed.  That’s why I set up Data3 to help improve business performance.”

Building brilliant data tools and dashboards can be tricky. You will want to create data tools that are accurate, intuitive, up to date and used regularly. However, sometimes things go wrong.

There are some common challenges, and hurdles to overcome when building data tools, including:

  • Multiple data sources
  • Data quality issues
  • Unclear business requirements
  • Expensive technology solutions
  • Complex data analytics
  • Poor dashboard design

And, sometimes you can end up building a dashboard or data tool that isn’t valued or used by your business. But these challenges can be overcome. If you go about it in the right way.

Data3 have put together a quick guide to help keep you on the right track. Download our top ten tips for data analytics success to get started.

Want to know more? Come to our Data3 workshop on 20th September 5-7pm.

Helen will be sharing in detail the ten-step process that will enable you to create data tools and dashboards, for your business, in the most efficient way.  Starting with your individual business requirements, you’ll be able to start working immediately on a robust process that you can follow to build your own data tools when you get back to the office.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is aimed at key influencers in medium – large sized organisations. You don’t have to have any former knowledge of data, dashboards or data analytics – you might be already working in a business that wants to build bespoke data business tools and want to know how to start. We will share examples, from a range of companies and sectors, to bring the workshop concepts to life and would love you to be part of the discussion.

Please register here and we will supply you with all the details. There are 15 spaces available so we’re expecting this to be booked up in advance.

Helen has over 20 years experience working in senior, commercial roles in global organisations using data to improve business performance.  A self-confessed data geek, she loves working with fellow data enthusiasts who want to create data tools and dashboards. Connect with Helen on LinkedIn.
