Overview

Cameron Homes, a leading UK housebuilder, embarked on a data transformation journey to transform operations and empower data-driven decision-making. Partnering with Simpson Associates, they implemented a comprehensive solution leveraging three key pillars: 

  • Azure Modern Data Analytics Platform 
  • Robust Data Governance 
  • Power BI KPI Reporting 

Together, these solutions unlocked the power of data for Cameron Homes, supporting smarter business strategies and future growth. 

Problem

“Cameron strives to maintain its position as one of the most trusted housebuilders in the Midlands by continuing to provide high quality homes and top quartile performance in customer service, but honestly, our old data systems were holding us back. We couldn’t easily get the insights we needed to make the best decisions. Partnering with Simpson Associates on this data transformation was game-changing.

Together with Simpson Associates, we implemented a secure and clean Azure platform and built user-friendly dashboards using Microsoft Power BI. It’s like night and day compared to our old more manual processes where everything felt clunky.

Now, everyone can easily find the information they need about sales, production and health and safety, allowing them to make informed decisions. That’s making a real difference in how we run things. We’re even more confident about our future because we can use data to make informed choices and stay ahead of the curve. If you’re looking to get more out of your data, I can’t recommend Simpson Associates enough!”

Solution

Following a comprehensive Data Strategy Assessment, Simpson Associates worked in partnership Cameron Homes to design a tailored solution focused on: 

  • Building a secure and scalable data platform:  leveraging Microsoft Azure, Simpson Associates established a data landing zone and implemented an ETL Framework using Azure Data Factory. This foundation ensures data security, availability, and future scalability. 
  • Implementing robust data governance:  defining data policies, management groups, and resource management practices ensures data quality, security, and compliance, laying the groundwork for responsible data usage. 
  • Modernising reporting with KPI dashboards:  replacing manual Excel reports with user-friendly KPI dashboards built on SharePoint and Microsoft Power BI empowers self-service analysis while maintaining IT governance. 

Key Benefits

The Azure Modern Data Analytics Platform, Data Governance and Power BI KPI Reporting will ultimately Empower Informed Decisions for Cameron Homes, including:

  • Empowered Informed Decisions: easy access to critical data through the new data platform and dashboards fosters informed decision-making at all levels, saving time and resources through streamlined data pipelines and self-service reporting.
