Data Strategy & Data Quality
Accelerate your journey to becoming a data driven organization by defining and implementing the right data strategy.
The data that drives your operations and fuels the core of your business is growing exponentially, across many applications such as Salesforce, SAP, Endur, Allegro, Openwells, Aries, and internal solutions; all of which are running in disparate locations including cloud-based providers such as Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. You need a single view of your key entities, across your various data lifecycles and functions, such as Customer (name, location, status), vendors, suppliers, well-header, finance, gross margin & P&L, risk management, logistics, sales, and production, to gain an enterprise perspective of where you stand and where you are headed.

Assess, Improve and Sustain Your Data Quality
Your existing data has been migrated and integrated into your data management solution, but that data is not perfect and continues to evolve. Robust processes are required to gather, cleanse, conform, reconcile, validate, authorize, and publish the approved master data. These processes need to support ownership of the data by the business, with IT as custodian, at each of the stages throughout the data lifecycle. Sullexis partners with your IT and business teams to define the roles and responsibilities for data ownership and governance. We will train and equip these business teams for their new roles as data stewards.
