Communities first. Use Cases second. We help leaders unite their data to their business through their people.
Like most data leaders, data isn’t the issue. Working with and unifying people around data is your biggest challenge. The DataWorkbench is designed to help leaders create a collaborative data culture that works together to drive long-term transformation.
“XenoDATA brought us a simple, yet powerful methodology along with personalized insights to help us remove the complexity surrounding data management and empower us with the confidence to solve our own data challenges. Since working with XenoDATA we have identified millions of dollars of improvements directly attributed to improved data management. If every organization had 100 people applying the XenoDATA methodology and solutions they would likely become the most efficient and profitable company in the world.”
Implement the DataWorkbench on your own or with the help of a Fractional CDO.
Solving problems with data requires input from lots of different people. Keeping others excited about the work is critical to getting projects across the finish line. The DataWorkbench gives you the ability to unite all your stakeholders in one central location. You can set expectations, cast vision, and share real-time results to keep others engaged.
Most data solutions are built around data, not people. We do the opposite because when you invest in relationships first, identifying quality use cases becomes much easier. The DataWorkbench is the one-stop-shop where people collaborate on projects, discuss new use cases, and stay organized to deliver real and lasting change within your data strategy.
You can’t effectively govern data until you identify who you’re helping, the problems you’re solving, and how you will solve those problems. Once those items are in place, you can assign roles and responsibilities in order to do traditional governance activities like metadata management and data quality. The DataWorkbench helps leaders organize, execute on, and monitor these important steps so that governance is adopted and effective over time.
With the foundation laid, you can now watch the power of people working together. At this point, your job is to minimize friction so your teams can soar. The DataWorkbench helps you monitor community usage, track real-time results, and make adjustments to maximize engagement. If you run into any issues or have questions, on-demand support is available to help.
While the DataWorkbench is a great do-it-yourself solution, some leadership teams want a more hands-on approach. Fractional CDO is our done-for-you service where we partner with clients to establish a "people first, data second" process to data management. We help teams adopt the perfect mix of strategy and technology to engage stakeholders, solve problems, and become self-sufficient overtime.
"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."
Build a thriving data culture with complete support from an experienced Fractional CDO.
Every rock-solid strategy starts with goals. So the first thing we do is dive into understanding your objectives for success. Next, we'll look at existing strategies and speak with your stakeholders, so we can begin to layer our methodology on top of what you already have in place. At the end of this phase, we'll give you a 12-month roadmap and personalized recommendations on how to integrate the plan into your business.
Once the roadmap is in place, it's time to enable your strategy with technology. We'll personally onboard you to the DataWorkbench. This tool helps us identify roles and responsibilities for members, use case benefit types, data assets, data domains, and other key criteria to help you deliver measurable outcomes. With a Fractional CDO you never have to walk into unknown territory alone. We walk alongside you so that you learn how to be successful every step of the way.
With a Fractional CDO you never have to figure it out on your own. We walk side-by-side with you so that you can learn exactly what needs to be done to successful.

Ultimately, you need to be self-sufficient. Our goal is to give you the baton, sit our asses in the stands, and watch you break world records. Not many people want to work themselves out of a job, but we do. When you're confident in driving the ship that means we did our job. It also means we can move on to help other data leaders in need.
