Business operations, marketing, risk analysis. Big data is becoming increasingly important for making critical decisions at every level. Make sure your data is structured for performance and security.

Businesses often face challenges getting the information they need from the data they have on hand, or what has been provided to them from elsewhere. Database queries and processes which take excessive time to generate reports, or reports in formats that requires additional reformatting, or missing critical information required for business decisions.

The Technology and Risk Advisory Group’s data experts can decipher the architecture of your databases and ensure that the information you need is available in the right format, in the right place, and at the right time.

Modeling Process
  • Using an Intelligent Data Modeling Process, we build data models that reflect the true meaning of the data and the true relationships between data so you can answer any future questions about that data, or prepare for artificial intelligence and predictive analytics.
  • Ensure complete understanding  about all data elements: Where they come from, how they are created, how they are used throughout the organization, and how they relates to each other. This rigorous approach  results in much greater longevity of the database.
  • Creation of data structures which are able to be aggregated, summarized, or reorganized so all users get the answers they need, not just the owners of the data or users of the original applications.
  • Proper design of data and databases ensure the information will have extended longevity, often outlasting multiple generations of front-end applications as new technology results in replacements to the user interface.  

Database Design

Taking a modern,  intelligent approach to database design the TaRA Group gives you quick access to all the data you need, when you need it.  Our approach seeks to ensure both functional use of business information now, and preparing your data for advance use in the future with new technologies such as predictive analytics and artificial intelligence.
