TORCH Summary

Whilst our Leadership Training service helps businesses start their data journey, TORCH aims to enable business to successfully take the next steps once the foundations are in place. This is done by translating strategy into practical actions, using the methods and technologies most suited to their needs.

Funded by Scottish Enterprise and delivered by The Data Lab, the TORCH business advisory service focuses on understanding the needs of a business and ensuring they are met. It connects companies from all sectors with specialist data and data technology suppliers, to facilitate successful business outcomes using data and data technologies.

TORCH was created in response to the challenges faced by many businesses when starting on their data journey. Businesses struggle to identify the appropriate approach to adopt, the resources required, and the optimal solution components to select. This leads to many data projects failing to complete and thus not delivering their anticipated benefits.

The service partners with Scottish based companies of all sizes, which have proven expertise in delivering data driven solutions, to enable client businesses to implement their data strategies.

If you are a business keen to take the next steps on your data journey or a data or data technology supplier interested in partnering with TORCH please contact us at
