HOW IT WORKS

Discovery

First, we explore how data is collected and used across all channels. This gives us a clear picture into whether your enterprise has the processes, data assets and technology platform to execute your business strategy.

Analyze

Next, we examine how your analytics governance frameworks aligns with well-defined operational and financial metrics. Using case studies and benchmark methodologies, we identify gaps in business and IT, leading to recommendations based on industry best practices.

Strategize

Lastly, we present our solution design based on your company’s business architecture. While strategizing with clients and stakeholders, we present a clear ROI analysis and an actionable roadmap.

 
 
"One of the refreshing experiences in our engagement with Gray Matter Analytics was their collaborative approach that included knowledge transfer at the core of their engagement. The focus on knowledge transfer allowed us to take their work and execute on their solution, without any hiccups."

The stakes are too high not to invest in the right technologies to transform how we view, analyze, and act on data. But more investment in technology is rarely the solution. Since we strongly believe no two engagements are the same, our approach always begins with on-site interviews with business leaders. By helping everyone better understand business objectives and data requirements up-front, priorities are set early,  helping drive time-to-value as quickly as possible. We build an agreed corporate strategy, backed by an IT vision that can adapt and respond to big data’s opportunities. By tying projects to specific business goals, we help avoid issues brought on by projects becoming technology focused. Our deep data and analytics expertise brings specific use cases for healthcare and financial services. Carefully crafted strategies build a foundation for long-term success.

 

Detailed Data Maturity, Analytics Capability and Business/IT Gap assessments establish clear prioritization of objectives, helping unlock value and accelerating return on investment through:

 

  • IT and operational cost reductions

  • Data-driven organizational culture

  • Greater margins and profitability

  • Emerging threat and risks visibility
