Material changes like acquisitions, new products, missions for growth and major system transformations all drive data related needs. We help clients define their BI/Data Architecture or EIM strategy coupled with the actual business initiatives. Our extensive experience in both defining strategies and implementing those strategies via project road-maps ensure their needs are met regardless of internal or external influences. Business Intelligence is as much art as it is science and our clients depend on us to meld the science of technical implementations with the art of making BI solutions a reality.
Our culture is defined by the projects we do and the consultants on our team. We strive to be viewed as thought leaders within the data space and project leaders in implementation. Our clients look to us as trusted advisors who see through the noise and recommend and implement high value solutions. We are not a staffing company that drops resumes on your door step. We are your advisor and solution delivery partner that is accountable for the success of the project regardless of roles we play.
We deliver highly visible, complex BI solutions that range from strategy to solution implementation. We are vendor independent when designing solutions, yet bring highly talented certified tool consultants if required for the implementation. Our deep history and success within the BI/DW/EIM space can be seen with 50+ successful solutions for large clients.
Experience is critical to a successful BI Solution. We employ consultants with an average experience of 10+ years. We build project teams with consultants that have worked together on projects in the past. Project dynamics and leadership abilities are highly valuable, but often overlooked. Many firms lead with technology experience first and we take risk out by leading with project success, repeatability and technology skills. Our clients want us to partner with them to succeed and not just provide resources to fill roles.

BI Visualization for Requirements Gathering and Scoping Overview
Most BI users are visual learners and need the ability to conceptualize their data in order understand and run their businesses. Adapting your process to account for this shift is challenging for large organizations that following predefined SDLC’s. At C2 we utilize Data Visualization techniques at the beginning of our projects to engage the business earlier to capture the essence of how they want BI to perform. This reduces the risk associated with building data structures and BI capabilities that are not what the business needs. We believe that you shouldn’t build something you can’t visualize first.
