CDAO SERVICES: Accelerating Value Generation through the Strategic Use of Data Management & Analytics

Guillaume Bédard, Founder and CEO
Big data is set to reach over $273 billion by 2023, with companies like Microsoft, Amazon, and Google heavily investing in collecting real-time datasets. This growth drives the need for highly competent data analysts capable of analyzing and dissecting emerging data pools to strengthen business decision-making. However, conventional organizations often need additional skill sets and resources to empower truly data-driven decision-making.

Chief Data and Analytics Officer (CDAO) Services addresses these complexities by consulting and coaching businesses through its strong network of collaborators that maximize the benefits generated with data. A strategic business management consulting firm, CDAO's flexible and result-oriented services help clients build a strong data and analytics foundation for their business functions and processes through a set of enablement services and accelerators.

"We have various workshops, boot camps, coaching programs, consulting sessions, cost-benefit pre-packaged analysis, and business advisory and management services which combine to deliver maximum value and ROI from data management and analytics operationalization," says Guillaume Bédard, founder and CEO of CDAO Services.

Over his 20-year data analytics consulting journey, Guillaume witnessed the evolution of consulting firms in the data and analytics space and leveraged his BI, master data management, advanced analytics, and data warehousing know-how to create CDAO's innovative services. Currently, its suite flexibly and strategically drives organizational transformations by ensuring data is utilized to its full potential.

Before partnering with CDAO, most of its clients are riddled with data maturity-related challenges and often struggle to align their operational staff and processes, which hinder the timely and strategic execution of critical data management programs. CDAO bypasses this problem by proactively structuring desired deliverables and artifacts through its powerful advisory and management consulting proficiency to pave a simple and clear path for data stewardship, engagement, and ownership.

Unlike a traditional firm, CDAO enables data system maturity and articulates an extended delivery model powered by a strong network of senior collaborators to coach and ensure clients get the most out of every engagement.
It follows a result-driven strategic approach to maximize operational value for data and analytics initiatives while educating clients on the importance of investing, mentoring, and training their data team.

CDAO provides valuable inputs that support a client's data analytics journey by strengthening the data governance ability of their program managers, strategic advisors, enterprise architects, chief privacy officers, and chief data and analytics officers. It also strengthens an organization’s strategic executives by coaching and supporting their business' data analytics strategies.

Recently, CDAO helped a client seeking to define a solution for solving crucial business problems. Initially, they were unable to build a suitable solution due to several missing elements like the lack of clarity into how to leverage their data to generate real value and limited insights into the best-suited solution design capable of mitigating their issues without disrupting day-to-day operations. Considering the demand for deep expertise to capitalize on market growth opportunities, CDAO skillfully completed this task in a short timeframe and budget through best-suited reference architecture solutions. After the collaboration, the client gained a clear view of the value and audience attraction capabilities of their business cases, witnessing a 400 percent ROI over three years.

In the coming months, CDAO aims to leverage its value-driven approach to develop new services capable of helping businesses reach new productivity goals, access digital transformation opportunities, and establish a data-driven decision-making culture.
