Delivering valuable business insight
The digital world has become too complex and dynamic to navigate based on past experience and gut feeling alone. Making effective use of exponentially growing data has become paramount for frontrunners in industry and government.
Discovering the diamonds
Data2Diamonds is CGI’s methodology for the design and implementation of data analytics, an umbrella term for the broad area of technology and applications related to getting business value from data. This ranges from data warehousing and reporting to advanced analytics such as predictive, prescriptive and cognitive analytics.
The essential idea of Data2Diamonds is that data contains valuable insights (“diamonds”) that can produce business improvements when put to work. The more high-quality data you can access and the better you can analyze it, the greater the potential for value.
Our popular Data2Diamonds Book represents the collective capabilities and experience of our data analytics practice and community, including our clients with whom we share and build this experience. It is part of our thought leadership series providing guidance for information management, business intelligence and analytics.
We showcase the business value realized in a wide range of industries and business functions, featuring case studies derived from CGI client engagements. We also define the core capabilities needed to succeed in data and analytics initiatives. Throughout this book, we share CGI’s best practices based on 5,500 members working with clients on data and analytics initiatives on a daily basis.
