Assess the AI & analytics capabilities of your organization and provide improvement actions.

Our AI & analytics capabilities review provides a detailed view of your capabilities and maturity across business units. The review can be tailored to your needs and delivers granular insights which are comparable across business units and will provide you with actionable recommendations. For the review, we will deploy a proven methodology.

D&A platform advisory & audit

Unit8 will assess the current use of data & analytics platforms within an organization and a target picturederived from future requirements. A benchmarking of options will be conducted, resulting in a clear recommendation that also takes into account the organization’s overall strategy, regulatory needs, and technical skills.

Assess readiness for planned regulation in the data & analytics field (e.g., EU AI Act)

Unit8 prepares you for upcoming, AI-related regulations in your industry and jurisdiction. After a risk assessment of existing analytics use cases, compliance requirements are laid out, along with an action plan of how to achieve these. The goal is to build AI systems that are both trustworthy and legally compliant within the organization.

What do we do:

Data Governance

Unit8 defines a data governance target operating model based on a comprehensive assessment of your data & analytics needs, following best practices on data governance. This can be supported by the appropriate tooling, such as a data catalog.

Model governance

Implementation of best-in-class model governance that allows you to build analytics at scale whilst at the same time keeping downside risks in check. With our approach, we jointly develop key governance requirements across the model lifecycle from MVP stage to production (e.g. sign-offs, documentation, access rights, the definition of role owners & responsibilities). This can be supported by the appropriate tooling, such as a model catalog.

Set-up of a D&A Target Operating Model or Center of Excellence (CoE)

Unit8 defines the CoE structure needs by analysing existing infrastructures, initiatives, roles, and activities. Alignment between analytics goals and business strategy is evaluated for each department. The design options, roles and responsibilities map, activities, and recommendations are designed to build a comprehensive CoE implementation roadmap.

Embed data-culture/data-centricity in your organization

“Data-driven culture is the belief and trust that data improves decision making across all levels of an organization.” After an assessment of your needs, we develop a tailored recommendation plan to foster data-centricity at your organization. This can be targeted at specific business units or hierarchy levels or be an overarching program. Topics such as training & awareness campaigns can be combined with lighthouse projects and improvements in infrastructure (e.g. low code/ no code platforms to empower the so-called “citizen data scientists” at all levels).

D&A (platform) roadmap & strategy

We assist you in developing a D&A roadmap that supports your overall strategic objectives. The roadmap includes platform functionalities and analytics & AI use cases in the right sequence to achieve maximum business impact. We also conduct strategy reviews of existing use case portfolios and provide actionable recommendations.
