Why you need a data strategy
Architecture and engineering
Once you know what data you require and what you want to achieve, you need the data architecture in place to ensure you can continually access, manage and use that data to your advantage.
Through our team of experts, we’ll be able to advise on each of the elements to consider, letting you pick the best options for your needs.
Visualisation and automation
Forrester reports that up to 73% of all data within an organisation goes unused for analytics. If you want to maximise every opportunity, let us help you understand your needs and make sure your teams are fully equipped with everything they need.
Cloud adoption is an important factor to consider when defining your data strategy. Our team have a wealth of experience with Microsoft Azure cloud, so are perfectly placed to advise on the benefits available when making the switch.

"I came to MHR for support and assistance with a Power Bi and data requirement to unlock the reporting potential of their HR system. MHR offered both consultancy and support to ensure we gained the knowledge and skills to take forwards into the future. Working with MHR was a pleasure and their knowledge and experience provided confidence in delivery. We hope to work with MHR further in the future and would strongly recommend their service to anyone looking to enhance the analytical capability of their data management."
"Through MHR’s Microsoft Practice, the engagement started with a Discovery Workshop to help further outline requirements, following this MHR setup a secure connection via an API to access the underlying data in our HR system. This meant it was far simpler to then extract the unstructured data, transform it and then load it into a Power BI model."
