Step 1

Define your goals, objectives, and strategy.

For Project Goals, be sure to follow the SMART methodology.

Project goals can be described as outcome statements that define what an organization is trying to accomplish both programmatically and organizationally.

 Be sure to define your goals as being:
  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant
  • Time-bound
Project objectives define the actions that must be taken for you to reach your project goals. When setting your objectives be sure to:
  1. Choose objectives based on your strategy.
  2. Consider all four “perspectives” when creating strategic objectives.
  3. Follow the “Verb + Adjective + Noun” format.
  4. Create “strategic objective statements” that clarify intent.
Project strategy is the approach you take to achieve your project goals and attain your project outcomes. Typically accompanied by KPIs or metrics, they are a means for you to measure the effectiveness of your project strategy.


Step 2

Connect your strategy to the appropriate data.

This is your chance to bring data into focus.

  1. Discover data.
  2. Relate data to your strategy.
  3. Catalog data for reuse.

Pull in data from spreadsheets, legacy systems, newly developed applications and private or public networks whether they be on-premise or cloud-based data sources. Using pre-built connectors, visualize data models to see data relationships and classifications so you know what, where and how to connect the appropriate data to your business strategy. 


Here is a partial list of type of data sources you can connect to:

  • MS Excel, MS Word, Google Sheets, Google Docs
  • Snowflake, Redshift, Teradata
  • ORACLE, MySQL, SQL Server, DB2, SAP and
  • Hive, Cassandra, MongoDB, PostgesSQL, Kafka



Step 3

Derive insights to inform your strategy.

Get powerful context-based insights to inform your strategy.

  • Query fast and often - run interactive queries.
    • know "what to ask first" and "what to ask next"
  • Drill down - using iterative search capabilities.
    •  reach a point where you can easily make decisions.
  • Trust the data using the rules derived from your business.
    •  analyze data within the context of your strategy.
  • Derive insights through data discovery.
    • discover data beyond the well-prescribed data typically found inside of your organization.


Step 4

Easily share and discuss Project insights.

Enable your team to collectively make more informed decisions.

FAIR Benefits from democratizing your project.

  1. Findable
  2. Accessible
  3. Interoperable
  4. Reusable

Yield more knowledge about your insights.

  • Who generated or collected the data?
