No matter what size of organisation you are in, what industry sector you are part of, or what type of products or services you provide, understanding and managing your operational data is critical. It provides insight into how you are performing, it shows how happy your customers are and it highlights where your opportunities to improve and grow exist.

As data volumes get exponentially larger and the array of data analysis tools and technologies increase, the way forward can seem bewildering. Our mission is to cut through the noise and the hype, to provide real-world rapidly deployed solutions and knowledgeable consultancy advice.

Our technology is powerful enough to handle big data (with larger clients processing 10 million customers and over 100 data feeds), flexible enough to handle complex and sensitive data scenarios (such as personal data for vulnerable people and complex fire safety data for property management), and agile enough to be up and running in weeks (with initial deployments usually taking 4-6 weeks to implement).

Our approach is flexible and practical. Our consultants are experienced at delivery and focussed on working closely with our client’s teams from day one of a project to get the best from their data and impart all the knowledge they need to manage their solution and own their data.

“Liverpool have worked with Sentinel to deliver cutting edge intelligence driven portals for front line professionals to use to support vulnerable children as part of the DfE funded SAFE Taskforce project which has attracted attention nationally for innovation. We worked with Sentinel to deliver a vulnerability tracking system during the pandemic in order to deliver support to residents in need of medical support, financial support and safeguarding. Liverpool City Council later used this system as part of the National Track and Trace pilot the government trialled in the city. Liverpool is looking forward to working with Sentinel on future developments such as an Early Years Intelligence portal, Family Hubs dashboards and vulnerability tracking to improve the outcomes of families in the city”.

Master Data Management

We can implement any style of Master Data Management solution based on the needs or constraints you have.

We recommend a deployment strategy that starts small and builds up with incremental projects to meet the needs of all teams and external partners. Each incremental step can apply the most appropriate MDM style to best fit with the business objectives and available data.

Our technology is flexible enough to consolidate and centralise data then build a Golden Record where needed, distribute some data where needed, present some data where needed and shield other data where it cannot be shared.

Master Data Management

Single View

Our technology includes an integral Portal layer that can be used to create any number of presentation applications, each only sharing what can be shared with that user group. We can provide Single View Portals which are tailored to the specific needs of each team and the services they provide.

These Portals can be extended as needed to include data collection forms (for the cleansing or enrichment of data), workflow management to initiate processes, and status alerts / dashboards to highlight concerns and critical task lists.

Data Masking

Obfuscating large amounts of personal and sensitive data to allow for testing across systems. It provides risk-free use of personal data in testing across multiple systems, allowing UAT to progress with safe, realistic and compliant data.

Business Data Transformation  

Businesses change, it is part of growth and part of sustainability. However, many businesses find change challenging— data is often at the heart of this challenge. Our advice is to make the change you need; we have several Business Data Transformation styles to suit your needs, including Migration, Integration, Hybrid, and Added Value Data Transformation approaches. 

Business Data Transformation  

When beginning our search for an early years solutions partner, we realised that what we wanted ultimately wasn't available off the shelf, prompting us to choose Sentinel. We saw it as a solution with potential for development, allowing the core package to be tailored to our specific needs.

The solution we have is bespoke; we can set up online contracts for any individual child, and the system generates the payment. This capability is complemented by the system's ability to determine a child's eligibility within a second. Moreover, the solution has made our process much smarter, enabling us to go completely paper-free. The system's flexibility ensures that most eventualities can be taken into consideration. This flexibility has also empowered us to manage borough operations on a day-to-day basis, rather than waiting for the census. Additionally, it has positioned us as one of the few local authorities paying our providers monthly based on actuals. Overall, Sentinel has given us the opportunity to be more child focused.

For providers, the solution has reduced bureaucracy and streamlined the payment process. Providers can see monthly exactly how much money they have coming in and what they are being paid for each child. They have access to a lot more information at their fingertips.

The Sentinel team knows the system inside out. They can turn queries around very quickly, and they are working well with us on the recent expansion of the new DfE funding streams.
