Stage 2: Data Investigation

Stage 2 is hands-on. We deeply analyze the existent data, looking for the solutions of the identified challenges. We search the databases looking for knowledge that is hidden or to be explicit and shared. We navigate through the data selecting what is relevant.

The data is extracted from the corporate systems and data warehouse. In this stage the data is prepared and begins its changed into information. It is an extremely rich moment in the generation and knowledge sharing. Many key business indicators can already be identified during this phase.

The business understanding (the previous Stage) and the data understanding (this Stage) are interrelated activities. One depends on the other and both are important parts of a whole that only makes sense if handled together.
