Data Architecture Advisory

Guiding Your Data-driven Transformation with Expertise

We understand the crucial role of data architecture in driving successful digital transformations. With our data architecture advisory service, we aim to provide expert guidance and consultation to ensure your organisation's data architecture is visible and optimised for your specific business needs. We enable you to establish a solid foundation that supports effective data management, regulatory compliance, strategic decision-making, and pave the way for advanced modern data platforms.

What to expect

When you engage with our data architecture advisory service, you can expect comprehensive support in designing and optimising your data architecture. Our deliverables include:

  • Data Flow Analysis: Capture and analyse the current state of data flow within your organisation. We map out the journey of data as it moves through systems, applications, and integration middleware, identifying opportunities for optimisation, consolidation, master record systems, and improved data quality.
  • Conceptual and Canonical Models: Develop conceptual and canonical models that serve as the basis for your data architecture. These models provide a standardised representation of your data entities, relationships, and attributes, ensuring coherence and consistency across your digital ecosystem. These models define standard data entities and their relationships, facilitating data integration, reporting, and analytics.
  • Regulatory Compliance and Data Governance Alignment: Ensure that your data architecture aligns with regulatory requirements, including GDPR compliance and other relevant data protection regulations. We help establish data governance frameworks and best practices to ensure the privacy, accountability, security, and integrity of your data.
  • Data Lifecycle Improvement: Design strategies and processes to enhance your data lifecycle practices. We focus on data acquisition, storage, transformation, integration, and archival, ensuring that your data is effectively managed throughout its lifecycle to meet business needs and regulatory requirements.
  • Data Storage and Management Best Practices: Advise on the best structure, storage solutions, and management practices for your data. We consider factors such as data volume, velocity, variety, and the specific needs of your organisation. Our goal is to ensure efficient data storage, retrieval, and accessibility, promoting agility and scalability.

Our Approach

Our service is rooted in collaboration, expertise, and a deep understanding of your unique business goals. We work closely with your team to comprehend your data landscape, regulatory requirements, and strategic objectives. Our approach includes:

  • Discovery and Assessment: Collaboratively gather information about your current data architecture, systems, and integration middleware. Conduct interviews and workshops to understand your business processes, data flows, and pain points.
  • Analysis and Design: Analyse the collected data and identify areas for improvement, consolidation, and compliance. Design data architecture solutions that align with your specific needs, focusing on scalability, performance, and compliance.
  • Implementation and Optimisation: Support the implementation of recommended data architecture changes, working closely with your IT and data teams. We provide guidance and support to ensure a seamless transition and optimisation of your data architecture from on-premises to cloud or scenarios of fine tuning your existing cloud data architecture.


We leverage a range of technologies and tools to design and optimise your data architecture. These include data modelling tools such as Visio, ArchiMate, DeZign, and LeanIx. Data governance software such as Microsoft Purview. We select the most suitable data modelling technologies based on your unique requirements and ensure seamless integration with your existing technology landscape.
