Van Oord – Greater understanding and control of the data landscape
How do you deal with data fragmentation in your organization? What is your data worth?
Before we could answer these questions, other more important questions had to be answered. Our client Van Oord needed to decide what point on the horizon it was heading for. It also needed to clarify its vision. The answers to these questions would determine whether the existing data solutions still met the company’s needs.
Van Oord is a Dutch family-owned company with over 150 years of experience as an international marine contractor. Marine ingenuity is their trademark and motive in pursuing their goal: to contribute to a better world for future generations.
Advice based on technical and strategic evaluation
To determine whether Van Oord’s existing data landscape was still aligned with its vision, Luminis conducted an evaluation of the company’s current vision, strategy, organization, processes and technology.
We also interviewed stakeholders from the business and IT to identify internal expectations and ambitions. Then we analyzed the data management platform. Van Oord wanted to know, ‘How can we use this platform?’ And ‘What are we trying to achieve?’
Specific and accessible advice
A successful data strategy involves more than just the technology
Based on its evaluation, Luminis advised Van Oord to clarify its vision and strategy and identify its primary process before investing more money in its existing data management platform. Van Oord is now creating a blueprint of its processes and reviewing its vision.
