Data Consulting

Novon has a team of Data Consultants focused on IM, BI and Analytics. These are disciplines designed to improve your businesses core operations, where we see most of these types of initiatives fail is in their ability to either clearly establish or remain aligned to improved business outcomes and their associated measurable benefits. As a value-add professional services provider, we specialise in working collaboratively with you to ensure that regardless of the stage of your initiative the decisions you make and the direction you take ultimately improves the way you do business.

In addition to full end to end capability in IM, BI and Analytics we specialise in the following areas which we believe drive your initiatives to realise significant business value:

Information Strategic Alignment
Whether establishing an IM strategy, defining your BI operating model, establishing Data Governance or implementing Analytical insights we work with you to understand your key strategic business drivers and ensure that your roadmap for delivery and prioritisation of investment aligns to the things your executive leadership has identified are required to drive your business forwards

Information Change Management
IM, BI and Analytics are facilitators of behavioural change. They improve the ways in which the personnel in your organisation operate. To maximise the effectiveness of change it’s important that you gear your people for these changes. We specialise in helping you apply the critical soft skills that will make your technology project a success
Information Benefits

Setting your project up for success is about being able to clearly articulate the benefits of the business process improvements your initiative will facilitate. We help you establish a clear set of outcomes for your initiative, map quantifiable benefits to those outcomes and help you establish owners and metrics for reporting on those benefits. Done correctly benefits management and their realisation demonstrates to your executive and key business stakeholders the day to day business improvements generated by your initiative.

Traditional Integration

Traditional Integration – While there are still some old EAI implementations operable, SOA and ESB are the two primary, traditional integration architectures that are fully deployed in Australia. SOA is anchored in the business and is based on ser- vice containers and boundaries, while ESB is anchored in IT and is based on ser- vices and messages. Both of these technologies (SOA and ESB) require a well-orchestrated, tightly executed operating model to deliver on their promises of reuse and agility for the business. SOA does require additional governance but the gains in agility by using service containers and reuse of the service contracts will normally justify the extra effort.

The use of architectural principles and patterns is highly recommended as is agreeing on and attaining a standard maturity level to run the practice on. The Open Group would be the most widely used standards in Australia. So what can Lonispace consulting offer?
