Keyrus’ call to action to make data matter by leveraging modern data architecture struck a chord with delegates attending the 2023 ITWeb Business Intelligence Summit held in Sandton, Johannesburg.
Speaking to ITWeb on the sidelines of the Summit, Adam Walker, GM at Keyrus, explained what the company means with its slogan ‘making data matter’.
“Keyrus is a solution-driven organisation, being tool agnostic allows us to assess the customer’s need and present them with the most suitable modern architecture to achieve their data strategy. We focus on breaking down the company’s data strategy into very achievable business objectives, working with the business to make those a reality.”
Following this approach, businesses understand what data assets they have, where these are situated, and how to interpret these assets, and then engineer modern data solutions to allow the information to emerge as something that can be visualised and analysed.
Keyrus drives end-user enablement using enriched, structured, and aggregated data, complete with Strategic and Tactical KPI metrics, which empowers the user with powerful data to make real intelligent business decisions.
There are many examples of how Keyrus has made data matter by implementing a modern data architecture for clients.
One of Keyrus’ strengths is that it has the experience and expertise to add value to a client, irrespective of whether they have a data strategy in place or not.
In today’s data-centric market, the demand for modern technology architecture is increasing, Walker says.
This is due to the drive to deliver a quality customer experience, leveraging AI and machine learning into their solutions, enhancing business agility, speed, and innovation.
Walker explains that this intense focus on digital transformation has heightened the propensity of businesses to begin building technology without considering a modern data structure that is both reliable and scalable.
Keyrus prides itself on assisting customers to build a sustainable architecture, supported by real-time data analysis and insights, aligned to the company’s data and company strategy.
The Keyrus team has a wealth of skills and talents, many of their customers are well on their digital and data journey, however, require an accelerated cadence to achieve success in their transformation projects. Keyrus facilitates staff augmentation to position key talent within the customer’s teams to help drive this success.
“Many customers have already commenced their data journey, they have defined their business strategy and even built out some well-enabled teams to execute... but as the bite of the apple begins, users begin placing additional demands on those teams to gain further insights into business performance. Keyrus, as an enabler, will assist with augmenting our customer’s technical teams and increase the velocity of quality project outputs,” Walker adds.
Keyrus’ main message to its market is that there are definite benefits of a modern data stack, specifically around removing complexity, ensuring holistic data transparency, and cost reduction, allowing for a future-proof, scalable architecture, and driving user adoption and enablement.
The company is positioned to help its customers eliminate the complexity and difficulty in handling siloed data and “peeling back the layers” of their data strategy.
The main objective is to show the layers of modern data architecture and why, rather than be overwhelmed by it, customers can carve out a clear path on how to reach this.
Research shows that the fundamental objectives are to ensure complete visibility and control while balancing cost with purpose.
As Craig Andrews, Head of Data Analytics at Keyrus explained at the BI Summit, Keyrus has an excellent track record in implementing modern technology, local presence, and competitive pricing.
Keyrus’ experts are highly experienced and able to offer practical solutions using reputable, modern, and scalable cloud-based technology solutions. Their approach is pragmatic and demonstrates a clear understanding of their customers' business challenges.
Walker reiterated that the company specialises in ‘peeling back the layers so that modern data stack architecture can make a lasting positive difference to customers’ operations.
