Scaling Analytics Capabilities
Data & Analytics (“D&A”) Modernization is no longer an abstract future state. Efforts to employ the latest technology and optimize processes are critical to generating a competitive advantage and mitigate business risks. Many organizations view modernizing their D&A platforms and training their people as costly and time consuming. However, proper planning and execution will shape those costs into investments with clear and measurable returns. A key strategy to help minimize the cost while maximizing scalable value creation is through managed services.
A primary impediment to investing in D&A Modernization is the lack of available talent. And that talent is quickly becoming more expensive. A well-thought-out analytics modernization journey will require leaders and technicians (i.e., data scientists, IT specialist, etc.) across every vertical pillar and horizontal function at an organization. That complexity can impede organizations trying to move from design to execution and further complicates the parallel business-as-usual processes that maintain ongoing operations during the transformation.
As new analytics strategies are put into motion, unforeseen problems can arise, drive-up costs, eat at efficiency gains, and hide opportunities for improvement. Managed services offers a unique solution through expert talent pools with deep industry focused experience and training across D&A strategies. Managed services reduces the burden on the business to obtain and retain top talent and pull specialists away from their day job to scalable modernization activities all while reducing cost, providing organizational flexibility and removes the burden of people management from transformation initiatives.
