Data management is all about results. We're fortunate to work with great leaders at great companies, who've had great results. These are their stories.
The CEO knew they were having some friction on their operating model with data & reporting but couldn’t put their finger on the root cause. To clients, there was a feeling of dealing with a technological laggard, to employees it was frustrating, and to executive management, something didn’t seem right.

"XenoDATA gave us an incredible data road map to solve our most complex, global data issues. In a world riddled with buzzwords, they helped us understand what our organization had to do to achieve full data transformation and ensured organizational buy-in by tying their recommendations back to true business value."
There was a lack of structure, process, and governance managing the People (Human Resource) data at the organization. Globally, most of the team felt that the data quality and access within the organization was poor, causing many complaints from the team. Specifically, the team had a large gap between how they spoke about data and how they measured data.
Additionally, the business had different global standards, data definitions, access, and engagement levels throughout the organization, leading to mistakes and confusion. At one point, an entire department was deleted from their HR system due to an amount of flexibility the system needed to support complex, competing requirements. It was determined that these data-related issues were causing a business waste of $2 million per year in lost productivity of front-line data workers, if not more.

"By implementing a true data governance team, Anheuser-Busch InBev was able to fix quality and data access functions to ensure more data accuracy and consistency across offices. XenoDATA helped us identify $2 million in lost revenue, and empowered us to keep it from happening again."
M&A Insurance Solutions identified the market as a whole was struggling to manage a silo-ed, unclear, and inefficient process during this high- stakes M&A insurance brokering process.
The brokerage process for M&A insurance deals, typically a 10-day process, averages 250+ emails per transaction with 20+ steps between the clients, brokers, lawyers, and insurers. At any given time, one broker could be working on 10-15 deals and managing more than 3,500+ emails.
Data was all over the place and too complicated to manage, leading to inefficient business processes and logistical nightmares between all parties. It’s quite common for clients and insurers to never speak with brokers directing all communications, yet the process must continue, quickly, before closing a deal. Because all steps of the RWI process were being managed through email, there was little transparency between all parties, frequent delays in information gathering, lost productivity, and struggles to provide real-time updates on current project statuses.
