If knowledge is power, then data orchestration is the path to power.

Data workflow orchestration is an automated process in which software programmatically combines and organizes data from multiple storage locations and distributed systems to prepare that data for analysis.

It can help your business handle the onslaught of data that’s bogging down your data analysis and bust through the silos preventing you from getting a full picture of what your data is telling you—all with the goal of supporting data-driven decisions to accelerate your business’ growth and profitability. 

Meaningful Benefits 

Data workflow orchestration offers meaningful benefits to any size business that’s interconnected to multiple data sources. It can make previously inaccessible information available quickly and on demand to fuel the work of marketing, sales, product development, finance, operations, your C-suite and more. And, for some businesses, it can even be a competitive differentiator, enabling you to provide clients with holistic insights or data. 

Helping Complex Businesses Run More Smoothly

As a core component of the modern banking stack, data workflow orchestration paves the way for complex businesses to run more smoothly, helping them:  

•    Manage data by eliminating data fragmentation, tech integrations and the need to migrate data from one location to another to end data silos. 
•    Move to the cloud by addressing issues relating to cloud configuration and infrastructures. 
•    Save time and money by eliminating manual coding to maintain hundreds or thousands of apps and servers, including connectors between systems to link data pipelines. 
•    Comply with regulations and data governance and privacy law requirements by organizing data for retrieval across silos and to prove data is collected ethically. 
•    Reduce bottlenecks by making data quickly accessible for internal use or by business clients. 
•    Reduce data transformation errors by automating the data standardization process. 

Ready. Set. Go! 

Based on our initial work, we recommend a phased approach to data workflow orchestration. Look for a potential early win in your business that will serve as a strong example of data workflow orchestration benefits, paving the way for increased investment and a fuller rollout. 

From the outset, it’s smart to be realistic about how quickly you can achieve full data workflow orchestration integration. Quick wins are certainly possible, but it’s clear that full integration is a long-term process that must be carefully planned and executed. 

We also recommend getting full buy-in for data workflow orchestration from the very top levels of your organization. You’ll need this support because of the cross-functional nature of the implementation process and to address any political situations that may arise as you attempt to free up data silos that, just perhaps, some individuals may be holding close to their vest. Senior support will ensure that all involved understand the enterprise-wide value of unlocking data to provide holistic information for decision making.

Data scattered in silos is, at best, underutilized data, but at worst it can lead to less than optimal or even wrong decisions because decision makers don’t have a full view of what their data is telling them.
