Case study



Ecosurety is a packaging, batteries and waste electricals compliance business, with a focus on data services.

We worked with Ecosurety using our Discovery + Design approach to create a data-driven strategy.

The vision

To understand the art of the possible, as well as options, pros/cons, costs, timelines and recommendations for how Ecosurety can become a future-proofed, scalable, data-driven organisation and deliver enhanced data services to their clients.

The problem

Ecosurety’s data is complex with hundreds of data sources and business reports – plus Ecosurety is growing fast so the data challenge is getting bigger and bigger.

The objectives

  • To understand Ecosurety’s business requirements, data sources and current data outputs
  • To design the right technology, reporting and resource solutions in a way that is robust, secure and scalable

Data sources

We reviewed a number of different data sources for this project which included:
  • OPERATIONAL DATA – customer submissions, client reporting, Environment Agency submissions & more
We delivered the Data Discovery & Design Report in November 2021


We used our Data3 Discovery Process to capture all business requirements and reviewed all relevant data, report samples and business information covering 6 business functions, 11+ data source types & multiple client-facing reports.


We used our Data3 Design Process to create a Data Strategy covering the art of the possible for technology, analytics and reporting, tool selection recommendations, a fully-costed implementation plan as well as a plan to drive culture change.


Ecosurety are using the Data Discovery & Design Report to inform their technology strategy…and we’re helping them to build their data warehouse and reporting technology stack.

“Data Cubed took a holistic view of our business, asking us lots of good questions to enable them to provide clear guidance and an implementation plan to make the most of our data. The advice and support received has been excellent.”
