Data Management Consulting

Data management capabilities are a key factor for business success

The need for effective data management capabilities is growing. As a key resource, high-quality data enables digitization initiatives, helps to improve business process efficiency and reduces compliance risks. To achieve these objectives, data needs to be managed like a true strategic asset. For most firms, this requires a mindset change and organizational transformation. CDQ can provide valuable support on both of these fronts. Our data management consulting advises leading firms on their journey towards a truly data-driven company.

We have many years of experience in the areas of data and data quality management. This is proven by more than 180 successful consulting projects for large, globally active corporations.

If your data needs to support digital initiatives, process efficiency or regulatory compliance, CDQ helps you define the right data management strategy to support your business goals.

If poor data quality limits your analytics department's ambition or creates unnecessary costs and risks in your business processes, CDQ can help you define the right data quality management approach and support data cleaning.

If you need to define data management roles and responsibilities, CDQ can help you design and implement the right data governance – for both central and decentral data management activities.
