Benchmarking in action 

"Datamaran allows efficient yet thorough gathering of evidence need for well-informed strategic decision making. The insights can be re-purposed for different projects across teams."


An important part of building a comprehensive and future-proof strategy is identifying your material risks and opportunities through benchmarking. 

To benchmark is essentially to compare your position to a standard or a peer group. It tells you what you’re doing well, what you could do better and how you could do it better. Benchmarking is important for companies who want to understand their position and find ways to improve it.

It is particularly useful when companies don’t know where to begin the process of assessment and improvement. It gives them a relevant comparison point upon which to base their analysis.

Benchmarking often involves sifting through huge amounts of information, which can be a daunting – not to mention time-consuming – prospect. The old way of benchmarking implied manually reviewing corporate reports or getting biased results through under-representative samples.
