Fast Service Innovation with Data you didn’t know you had.
– E. Murphy & M. Murphy, Leading on the Edge of Chaos
Like water or electricity, data has become a commodity. We all have it, but we are not really sure on how to define it or measure it, or what if what we are doing with it is all we can take advantage of.
It’s not only about ones and zeros. From invoices and orders to surveys, text messages, emails or complaints, data takes multiple forms that are often easily connected to each other. Discovering those sources and helping you get hands on into it via digital technologies is where my expertise takes place. Bringing them online will ignite your new engine of growth.
We will cover these 4 stages first:
1. Identification Discover and map new and existing sources of Data. . Process Mapping . Current Re-sources Optimization
2. Validation Verify the quality and quantity of the findings. . Data Cleansing by Dimension and Set Size . Data Validation by Dimension and Set Size
3. Enhancement Generate new sets of richer Data. . New Data Sets Generation . Data Synergies Implementation
4. Activation Identify touchpoints to optimize with the enhanced Data. . New Process Integration . Dashboard Design and Implementation
Three classes of factors affect what an organization can and cannot do: its resources, its processes, and its values.
― C. Christensen, The Innovator’s Dilemma

To Daniel, success equals learning. He began his education at the National University of Colombia where he received his Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering. He then started his career at the largest automotive company in the country, GM Colmotores. Always under the aftersales branch, he held various positions that helped him learn the in’s & out’s of customer management, first in the technical side of customer care, followed by business intelligence & sales. He finished his 6 years there developing new business opportunities. As a project manager, Daniel was in charge of transforming the service model in dealerships – translating a client-based culture born in Brazil to the Colombian landscape. This consisted of revamping old methodologies & service principles, using the largest SaaS (software as a service) provider in the world.
Looking to expand his knowledge, and to bring innovation to businesses in Colombia, he received his Master’s of Science in Management of Technology from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering in 2014. Upon graduation, he was employed with NYU, heading the omnichannel development for prospective students of the online graduate programs at the Tandon School of Engineering.
In 2016, Daniel decided to return to Colombia and put into practice his knowledge and experiences at open truss. He combines corporate-scale operations with a skillful approach to reach large audiences in extraordinary time. His high tolerance for uncertainty, paired with his skillful planning, shapes him into the perfect guide for your journey from Data into Services, through Innovation.
