Can you manage what you do not measure?
The reality is often chaotic and confusing. Many members in an organisation have different perceptions of this reality. Creating change with all these different views can be very challenging. We believe that change and improvement are easier if a team agrees about the current reality and its (possible) influential factors. Clear data, carefully discussed measures, and knowledge about variation are important steps towards shared knowledge. Diagnostic analysis give the ingredients for further improvement.
From time to time you will have a data related project in your organisation for which you lack human capacity either in quantity and/or quality. You would like to attach a consultant who has the right knowledge and experience for your case. The freelance consultant you find, covers most of the required expertise but not everything. In that case you want him or her to reach out to his/her network to find the missing piece of expertise in order to get the job done according to the best practices.
At Data Nomadi we want to overcome boundaries. Boundaries that may arise from company structures, knowledge, cultures, countries, languages, legal entities etc.. Boundaries which prevent the best solution for the relevant business case.
Therefore we are not organized in a defined legal entity at a certain location, but we are a co-operation of independent freelance professionals with a passion for data intelligence. We are transparent about our skills and we are connected through multidisciplinary projects, knowledge sharing and educational activities.
Fields of expertise used for projects:
Data strategy and requirements
Tooling, adoption and process optimization
Data analysis and decision support
As a Data Intelligence Network we help organisations in measuring their business and processes towards continuous improvement by making smart use of their data. We do this by combining business and data science expertise and in assisting in the selection and implementation of digital data tools
"In actual life it may be that 98% of performance comes from the system" (Edward Deming). Therefore we will encourage you to observe the system (process) behind the key performance indicators, relate the data to the system, make the data part of the system and (finally) let the system learn from the data.
As with any manufacturing process the information process is about to produce high-quality information products that are in demand in the shortest possible lead time and at the lowest possible operating costs.
We are a group of independent freelance professionals. We have different backgrounds but what we have in common is
a passion for data intelligence. We can create a team for a certain project and we co-operate with bigger firms
according to the needs of the customer. We include the required expertise and we will get the job done. There is always one project leader.
For about 23 years Maurice has worked in finance and auditing varying from due diligence investigations and other special purpose audits to the audits of (consolidated) financial statements according to IFRS, US GAAP and European legislations.
From his drive to use more data analysis tools during audits he also evaluated the use of business intelligence. He concluded that BI applications are more suitable for both the company as well as the auditor because of its comprehensive data models and diverse visualisations to easily identify trends, variations and exemptions.
Driven by his ambition to deliver a meaningful contribution to the decision and information processes of organisations,
as from 2015 he fully focused on data intelligence services. In this function he helps companies with their data strategies
and the selection of data intelligence tools as well as corporate performance management systems.
Using his extensive experience with business processes and ERP systems he has become proficient in business oriented
conceptual data modelling and developing user interfaces for decision making, internal control and compliance.

Roy has been an IT professional since 1996 having his bachelor degree in software engineering. He started in sales but the most experience he gained in helping organisations in the design and implementation of the IT landscape which comprised both the functional applications as well as the IT infrastructure, including security.
In the past decade the focus was more on business processes and transactional systems. Today data is becoming more and more an important asset to survive in a fast moving world. However, the variety of data sources on premise as well as in the cloud, the different storage technologies and companies increasing demand to combine internal and external data, brings new challenges to the design of IT infrastructures, security and data integration tools. With his strong analytical approach and multidisciplinary project management Roy helps organisations in translating their business goals into data strategies and the alignment of the IT landscape accordingly.
