Trust Housing and TORCH: Validating and developing a data roadmap

Reaching out to TDL allowed us to get a second set of eyes on what we’re trying to achieve and make sure that, not only are we going in the right direction, but we’re not missing things

Following a thorough review by their internal IT & Digital team, Trust Housing Association are working on an upgrade that will see their existing core data infrastructure move from a legacy model to a modern, cloud-based platform.

Their team of experts were confident that, not only would this upgrade exist as a positive stand-alone project, but it would also create additional opportunity to influence business outcomes and solutions.

With a data platform plan already in place, Trust approached The Data Lab’s Business Advisory Service, Torch, to help fine tune and provide trusted, external expertise to validate and build confidence in their strategy.

Working alongside our TORCH Solutions Architects, they have also built MSc student placements into their roadmap, explaining that they hope to support and benefit from emerging new talent and fresh ideas.
