Business Intelligence Analytics Consulting

Your IT organization could benefit from the deep experience of my partners and me in the areas of data and analytics. Whether you need to establish data and analytics within your organization or make improvements to an existing capability, we can provide value.

Establishing a successful data and analytics program may include: determining the objectives of the effort; assessing the maturity of the capability; developing strategies and roadmaps; making the business case; creating architectures; and building a BIA Center of Excellence. In support of these activities I have developed accelerators that produce an effective outcome; save time and mitigate risk when tailored to your organization’s specific needs.

Effective Enterprise Information Management (EIM) is foundational to a successful data and analytics program. I can provide guidance in data governance, data strategy, master data management, data quality, information lifecycle management, data modeling and metadata management.  For each of these we provide assessments, strategies, architectures, patterns, education and coaching.

We bring soft skills that including communicating with both upper management and detail workers. Good active listening and other data gathering methods help us to get a handle on the needs and concerns of your organization.  We build and deliver presentations that help to educate the program up and down the organization.

Your success is important to me. I will work productively with you and other leaders in your organization to establish or improve your data and analytics program.  In addition, I can bring in appropriate world class experts and regional practitioners as needed.  Consulting services are delivered through ShrewdData.com, a unit of First Place Software, Inc. as well as through other consulting organizations who may bring me in to tackle data and analytics opportunities and problems.
