Value from data
Scling offers partnership solutions for extracting value from data, by building and operating data platforms and data flows for our customers.
Your company data has value, waiting to improve your business. But building modern data processing capabilities is a large and risk-prone undertaking. A partnership with Scling is a rapid path to extract business value from your data.
Scling builds and operates data platforms for our customers, including the data flows that run on the platform. From a customer perspective, we provide a data refinement process, where raw data material is ingested at one end, and refined valuable data artifacts are emitted at the other end. Ingested data is stored in the platform, and available for long-term use for applications that benefit from larger data volumes.
The ability to extract value from data has become a business differentiator, dividing disruptive companies from disrupted. The companies that we consider disruptive have mastered the collection and processing of data, and are able to take decisions based on data, and build features driven by data, ranging from simple convenience features to complex services driven by machine learning.
Extracting data value
All data mature companies have chosen the strategy of collecting company data into a centralised data platform. Data is collected from systems that contain source data, from client devices, or from external parties. It is ingested to the platform, where it is processed offline and turned into refined, valuable data, which feeds analytics and data-driven features.
Journey to data maturity
Scling’s mission is to enable established companies to benefit from the value in data at a level and efficiency that has so far been restricted to highly technical companies. The journey to data maturity and data-driven features is a path of discovery, where steps are chosen based on learnings from working with the data.
Partnership & pricing.
A partnership with Scling is an agile contract and an iterative journey together. In order to build complex data features, it is essentially to start simple, and learn in small steps along the path. Scling therefore offers a business model where customers subscribe to a value stream of development deliverables, which incrementally improve their data flows.
Working incrementally is critical for data success. We therefore work closely together with you on your journey to data maturity, and only build flows that deliver value, rather than propose large projects or comprehensive self-service platforms. Different customers have different priorities and needs, many of which are unknown when the journey starts. Adapting along the way is necessary, and cutting away unnecessary complexity is essential to make the data journey yield return on investment.
