Research and Analytics
Researchers and good analytics consultants put forth a unique blend of skills and knowledge across technology, statistics, and business. Your consultant should be conversant with the proven analytics, data scrubbing, and de-duping tools, and up-to-date with what is coming next. They should bring you the advantage of being at the leading edge of analytics and research developments. Meanwhile, your consultant should be upfront with you about the state of your data to ensure data quality and redefine data strategy.
With volumes of data, i.e. big data, growing at unprecedented rates inside and outside an organization, the business need for predictive, prescriptive, descriptive or diagnostic research and analysis is a must. The insights gained by understanding past business performance can be used to predict, prescribe, describe or diagnose current and future business performance.
Research and Analytics consultation has brought data warehousing, data mining, and data quality back into the management agenda
