Pulling insights from siloed data

Abellio needed our help to find a better way of understanding information, data, and analysis to make good strategic decisions across the ever-growing complexity of modern business. With our unique ability to transform static siloed data into a visual, live, and interactive story, SharpCloud gave Abellio an immediate understanding of the business, and helped senior managers to understand safety in their area, from project size to who's responsible, how easy or difficult the task is, the outcome and how that’s aligned to overall strategy.

Abellio's objectives

How SharpCloud is helping to inform senior stakeholders by aligning projects and risks to strategy

1
Break down data silos

With data siloed and not readily usable, insights were easily lost across spreadsheets, PowerPoints, and 200-page board reports. With data uploaded into SharpCloud, Abellio can see the whole picture; the high-level strategic aspects and below that, the stakeholders, actions, and working groups aligned to those goals.

2
Build confidence in understanding and presenting data

With the ability to provide clear, concise, and easy-to-understand views, SharpCloud enabled Abellio to confidently present their data and clear insights during meetings and give senior stakeholders the evidence they need to make informed decisions with confidence.

3
Explore hidden data connections

SharpCloud's agility to uncover complex dependencies and data relationships means Abellio can see risks linked to projects and explore how those connections may affect strategic goals. Additionally the flexible nature of  SharpCloud enables you to move data around and see how the picture changes and explore ‘what if’ scenario’s which is essential for informed decision making.

How Abellio is managing safety today

Abellio been able to transform a static spreadsheet into an interactive SharpCloud story and turn the concept of risk, which is not easy to understand in a siloed format, into something tangible that people can see, do something about, and interact with. With all the information in one place, in a visual and dynamic format, SharpCloud helps to support strategic decision making with real time evidence and allows senior managers to understand, action, and track safety in their area.
