LEARN WHAT WE DO

ANALYTICS

Companies have realized that data-driven decisions lead to better returns. From allocating spend on marketing media to monitoring patient health to predicting future claims, a hypercompetitive world is increasingly looking to analytics to assist humans (and machines) to diagnose, predict, prescribe, and continually improve every decision.

 

A new set of technologies -- extensible analytics platforms, big data, data warehouse appliances, columnar databases --  are emerging to help companies leverage their data. Analytics applications are no longer just downstream and diagnostic. They are pervasive, embedded, and invisible. Investing in the analytics infrastructure is not sufficient however; what companies also need is the attitude and discipline to become data-driven.

 

Let us help build intelligent analytics applications that drive new revenue, explore untapped markets, and improve the you bottom line. Here's a sampling of what we do to make it all work for you:

DATA MANAGEMENT

Companies are managing increasingly large and diverse data stores to meet the analytic demands of their end users. Relational data from transactional systems is now only one part of an organization’s information assets. Feeds from Websites, sensors, applications, social media, and mobile sources are quickly growing both the size and the complexity of the data management landscape. The care and feeding of your data means automating more tasks where you can, ensuring your data is clean and reliable, and being able to know that you are in control of anything that needs to be managed.

 

Many companies are turning to virtualization technology to bypass application silos and bring disparate data sources together, resulting in big data that may have misaligned meaning or gaps in security. Suddenly, there is strategic importance in moving toward thoughtful information architecture, which may include mastering selected data elements about your customers or your products, applying context to data through a taxonomy, ensuring data always has adequate privacy and security, or implementing strategies for records deduplication.

 

The goal is to allow authorized access while preserving the integrity of your information, regardless of how end users or your external customers and partners are exploring your data. Ask us how we can help you tackle your data management challenges.

BIG DATA

Apache Hadoop adoption is becoming mainstream, and it’s easy to understand why. Open Source Software benefits. Massive scalability. Commodity hardware. Ability to handle complex and computational analytics like fraud detection and telemetry. Ready to take on exotic next generation data, like streaming and social media feeds and machine communications from the Internet of Things. Awesome innovations like handling data transformation in real time while your data is in flight.

 

Are you ready for the big data explosion? Even if your primary approach is relational databases, you might want to explore the big data frameworks within the Hadoop ecosystem. Offload your “lightly used” and archived data to a less expensive platform while keeping it available for search and query needs. Perform iterative and in-memory data analysis. Build custom modules to extract insights from unstructured or semi-structured data.

CUSTOM APPLICATIONS

Whether you operate your business exclusively from in-house systems, or whether you are currently in a state of “transition to the cloud,” all modern applications require some degree of design, development, and customization. No longer running in silos, critical applications have to be interoperable, capable of exchanging information with other solutions, and flexible to meet changing business needs. As a result, true “Buy vs. Build” decisions are a thing of the past.

 

If you buy, you will have to design, configure, integrate, secure, or otherwise extend your “off the shelf” solution to meet your needs and achieve the business value you expect from your investment. If you have highly custom needs that make more sense to build, you can greatly reduce costs with intelligent design and use of open source or commercially available features and components that don’t need to be customized.

 

Balancing the best of both worlds allows you to enjoy apps that can keep in step with your evolving business. Ask us how we can maximize your business value while lowering the cost of future changes.

UX DESIGN

The most successful analytics applications make user experience central to its design. They draw the user in with clever layouts, encourage data discovery with intuitive navigation, and spur data exploration through tailored visualizations. Every interaction is designed to maximize user engagement and simplify even the complex.

 

To build such applications, we take a product design approach grounded in UX principles that identify personas, understand user psychology, and employ iterative development to increase product fidelity.

 

Learn how we can design amazing analytics products -- from dashboards and scorecards to mobile applications -- that make training manuals obsolete and delight your customers. Here are some of the things we do to deliver joy:

  • Contextual Interviews & Persona Workshops

  • Focus Groups

  • Usability Testing

  • Experience Mapping

  • Card Sorting

  • Heuristic Evaluation

  • Wireframes & Prototyping

 

VISUAL DESIGN

Users have grown to expect their enterprise applications to be as visually appealing as the consumer applications they regularly use. Equally, they expect a consistent look and feel across devices and form factors.

 

We advocate the application of visual design principles to build beautiful, clean, crisp applications that combine consistent aesthetics with function and drive user adoption.

 

Ask us to spruce up your existing interfaces or build new ones (with help from our UX design practice). Here's a sampling of how we can help you:

  • Branding

  • Style Guides

  • High-fidelity Mockups

  • Visualization Toolkits and Frameworks
