Testimonials

“I attended the data strategy workshop in February 2019. The event was very well structured and covered the three main areas of data strategy – data governance, data architecture and ensuring your data aligns with your customer strategy. The day was facilitated expertly by Samir Sharma from Datazuum. The opportunity to share experiences with like-minded data professionals in an informal workshop was both valuable and enjoyable.” Ian Johnston, Head of Data & Analytics, Standard Life

“Samir delivered an exceptional data strategy workshop. A well-structured, interesting and practical workshop. The use cases and exercises introduced by Samir contributed to focused and stimulating discussions amongst participants. I came away with newfound knowledge and a desire to continue my education in this critical topic. I could not ask for more from a one-day workshop. I highly recommend Samir’s data strategy workshop to any professional seeking to understand how data can impact change in their organisation.” Michael Feiner, Director LeapThree

“I had the pleasure of attending this fast track one-day training course on data strategy. I appreciated Samir's enthusiasm and in-depth knowledge on the subject of data strategy, from years of experience. He was able to breakdown the key concepts of data and took us through a step by step logical process, that covered the most important things to know from strategy to implementation. I came back to my office with concrete answers to all of my questions.” Alain Sanjaume, Global Data Business Lead for Teads.tv

"I had the opportunity to attend the Datazuum Data Strategy Workshop this year. It was expertly presented by Samir Sharma who took us through the important aspects of how to align business goals and data strategies. Including providing the participants with the tools and skills with frameworks to successfully deliver them. It was also great to have such a varied group of participants to talk to about their own challenges and success with data strategies in their companies so far. An essential training for any professional looking at increasing their Data Strategy skills. " Owen Eszeki - CDO Partners

Data Strategy Workshop Colombo

Introduction

Do your data initiatives lose momentum and get stopped without making the impact or adding value to your business? Are you being told that you need to embed AI or Machine Learning into your organisation and aren’t too sure where to start? Have you gone out to the market and approached solution providers only to be more confused about what you need and often, being told to buy technology as it’s the silver bullet to all your problems? Are you having issues with the uptake of data tools and technology in your organisation? If you nodded and agreed to these, then this event has been designed for you.

Data Strategy Training

The aim of this Data Strategy workshop is to provide you with the foundations that will support how you want to use your data, scope and clarify what your top data objectives are, assess your data maturity, map out the business questions that need to be answered to deliver your outcomes, embed a data informed culture through data literacy, and ensure the right data management foundations are in place so that you can start utilising AI or machine learning with greater potency.

              Frequently Asked Questions

              What’s included in the fee?

              The workshop includes breakfast, lunch and afternoon refreshments. Let us know if you have any dietary requirements beforehand.

              What is the difference between the Premium Consultation Service and the standard ticket price?

              The VIP ticket provides an extra two hours consulting on any specific challenges that need to be looked at in more detail. Through experience, we have found participants would like extra time to discuss certain aspects that might be sensitive to discuss in a wider forum, and therefore, the VIP ticket provides the space for extra problem solving.

              Can you provide this training in-house for organisations?

              Yes, that question often comes up and we deliver in-house training based on the needs of the organisation. We work with the organisation to tailor it for their teams, and ensure we are addressing specific challenges. If you would like to pursue this, please speak to the trainer or email us on info@datazuum.com
