I helped deliver cutting-edge visualisation and analytics tools and techniques to clients for them to dig deeper, draw more precise conclusions, and keep our clients engaged.

What were the challenges?

One of our main challenges is having access to quality data. This often stems from the lack of data awareness, both externally and internally. Better client data governance and the willingness to embrace new technologies and deliverables are key.

What has been the highlight so far?

Tapping into data beyond high-level, aggregated financial statements such as the balance sheet is crucial for qualitative, transparent and complete due diligence work. Obtaining a full, unbiased and coherent picture of key business growth drivers, risks and opportunities drives factual, well-grounded decisions.

What have you learned?

Changing well-oiled ways of working and habits is a challenging task. We want to expand our traditional skill set and enrich it through powerful analytics and visualisation skills. This requires time and patient practice. Collaborating with colleagues from like-minded Deloitte practices around the globe has rendered positive insights and has given us an idea of how to achieve it. Deloitte is a powerful network of outstanding professionals with a great will to help.
