ProStrategy Data & Analytics – Delivering World-class Data & Analytics Business Software Solutions for over 30 years.

To grow and out-perform your competitors it is essential that the use of data and analytics, that help you understand current and past performance and that predicts the likelihood of future events, become everyday activities for your people.  Your people, regardless of capability and need, should be able to interact with trusted data to help them perform their job better and make better decisions.  Your people should be enabled for some or all of these analytic capabilities.

Receive and consume regular business reports; Interactively engage with dashboards; Self Service analysis and discovery of insights; Share information and collaborate with others in the business around that data; Build Data Models from trusted sources for historical analysis and predicting future events (advanced).

Data & Analytics – Data Discovery & Visualisation Reporting

Data Visualisations are a great way to understanding performance trends and to gain an insight on your business.  We partner with our customers to

  • understand their business and design visual analytics to highlight trends and create actionable insights
  • Create enablement programs to drive adoption of analytics in the busines
  • Engineer/build/architect  a data model that facilitates self-service analytics in an easy to use manner

Visual analytics help see the wood through the trees, however there are times when you can’t substitute the need for classic reporting.

Reporting provides for formatted business reports, such as a quarterly business report, or a daily view into weekly business performance. These are often scheduled for email distribution and are print friendly. We work with our customers to;

  • design and develop the most relevant reports and reduce the noise in this space.
  • build internal capability to create and share reports
Data & Analytics

Data Science

Hindsight – where was I ?
Insight – where am I ?
Foresight – where will I be ?

Foresight – This is what data science offers.

  • Insurance – Who is most likely to have an accident?
  • Banking – Who is most likely to default?
  • Manufacturing – What is the most likely cause of product returns?

ProStrategy provide the software applications and people who have a mix of technical, business and communication skills to take on complex problems or analysis.    On a typical engagement, our ProStrategy data scientists work with customers to firstly understand the business objective, then to collect data from multiple sources and run algorithms against that data using a variety of leading edge platforms and open source technologies to find patterns and trends.   Modern languages such as R and Python on powerful computational platforms such as Microsoft’s AzureML or IBM’s Watson/Data Science/SPSS offer very high performance on the largest of datasets to help answer business questions.   Communicating the findings back to business managers is a critical element of a project.  Data visualisations are a great tool to help us deliver those findings.

User Experience

Personas & Design Thinking – We help our customers to understand the different groups of users, or personas within their organisation so we can group their desired needs and experiences.  Design thinking is a solution focused methodology which puts personas and their needs at the starting point.  Employing this technique during our design phase ensures that we build an analytics experience that is aligned to their business goals and drives solution adoption.  We work with our customers to develop best practices around data governance and modelling to ensure there is a good balance between end user self service capabilty and  the production of trusted reliable information.

Sharing [and Publishing] – As insights are discovered through the use of analytics,  much of the value is created by sharing those insights and agreeing actions collaboratively.   We work with our customers to build platforms that enable people;

  • use their business knowledge to discover insights using analytics,
  • share their findings with others to add perspective and context to the information
  • Collaboratively identify and agree actions that can be taken.

Accessibility and Mobile – People are continously on the move and are using different devices depending on their location and time of day.  We help our customers to develop analytic visualisations and reports that can be accessed on all devices and that will present content appropriate to the device being used.

Governance Vs Flexibily – Flexbile Self Service Analytics empowers end users to access and analyse data with little or no reliance on IT.  While this is very powerful and important capability, data errors and inconsistencies can occur if each user or group of users define their own business rules and calculations for reports that are used across the organisation.

Data Management

Acquisition and Integration – Almost every organisation has a growing volume of data that contains a lot of valuable information.  However, getting access to trusted information remains an issue for many.    ProStrategy leverage best practice methodologies to identify the key business data sources, and leading class technologies from our partners to acquire data from the those systems and integrate it into a single location.  We advise on the frequency of timing and implement anything from weekly or daily updates to real-time streaming.

Transforming and Modelling – Well designed data models are key to unleashing the true power of data.  We combine and transform your data from it’s raw state and add business calculations, KPI’s and other contextual information to make the data more valuable to business users.  User experience and solution adoption are key tenets of a successful solution so our models are specifically designed to facilitate high performance and provide an easy to use platform for business users.

Governance and Security – Data governance is critical for users to understand and trust the data they need to make business decisions every day.  The key focus areas of data governance include availability, usability, consistency, data integrity and data security and includes establishing processes to ensure effective data management throughout the enterprise.

We can help you identify the processes, align your organisation and implement software solutions  to achieve trusted and secure data.
