Customers who trust us

Data strategy in detail


Assessment workshop

In our assessment workshop, you will learn about the strategically important components of a data strategy. We explain the aspects of machine learning, big data and AI that are relevant for you.

Actual state analysis

In addition, we jointly assess your status quo, conduct a location assessment and benchmark your current Big Data, AI and Analytics capabilities.

Selection of the IT landscape

We offer technology-independent advice and, depending on your needs, find the right technology and provide support during implementation.

Role definition

For a successful project it is important to know which people and skills you need for it and how you can integrate them into your organisation.

Operation Model

The operating model is your "digitalisation engine". Together we define the 5 pillars of your data operating model: organisational structure, processes, roles, data governance and IT system landscape.

Use Cases

We help you to develop and concretise a specific use case. We then evaluate this use case together for feasibility and define the next steps.


In our roadmap workshop, we use design thinking methods to develop an overview and pre-selection of suitable use cases. We translate the business processes into data-driven questions.

What is a data strategy?

A data strategy is the definition of the long-term goals for the value-added contribution of asset data in organisations as well as the activities and resources required for this. The data strategy thus defines the master plan for creating added value through data in organisations and is thus a core component of the overarching digitalisation strategy.

A data strategy must provide an aligned response to all design objects. The sub-strategies are integrated into an overall programme for transformation into a data-driven organisation.

Can you guarantee us a Rol?

In order to be able to generate added value from data, it is essential that we work together with the client to calculate a business case for each project and to be able to check this measurably during the project. However, due to the innovative nature of many of our projects, this is not always possible - so in such cases we have to work with assumptions. A Rol guarantee is not possible due to the innovative nature of the project.

Can we develop individual training?

[at] already offers standardised Data Science Trainings on various topics. We are also happy to develop individual solutions. We are happy to adapt these to the technologies you already use.

What skills do your advisors have?

Our data and AI experts have a wide range of knowledge and skills. Professional backgrounds include:

  • Mathematics 16 %
  • BWL & VWL 14 %
  • AI, Big Data & Data Science 6 %
  • Engineering 14 %
  • Physics 9 %
  • Computer Science 41 %

Do you only advise or do you also take over the implementation and realisation of this?

With the help of our Data Journey we accompany you from your first idea to the finished data product.

Do you also provide non-binding cost estimates?

We will be happy to provide you with a non-binding cost estimate for your project after an initial discussion. 

What is the Data Journey?

With the data journey, we accompany you from the first idea to the finished data product. With the help of this framework, projects can be classified at any time according to the maturity of the data products and the subsequent phase can be planned. This enables us to generate real added value from data projects across the board.

Who do I approach with a specific project enquiry? What is the bidding process here?

For an initial exchange on your request, please contact our Head of New Business Simon Decker!
He will be very happy to help you with your concerns and will call in the appropriate experts depending on the areas in which your challenges are to be located.

We still need expertise in one of our ongoing projects. Can I book individual profiles in the course of this?

We would also be happy to send you profiles to match your enquiry. 

Does [at] offer teams or is there the possibility for single sourcing?

Our experience has shown that we can best react to the (sometimes unplanned) requirements in the project if we support you as a team. Depending on the issue, it usually requires more than one person.  In cases where the requirements are very clear, we can also plan with fixed project staff.
