harness the collective human intelligence across your whole data landscape via integrated data intelligence platforms, agile analytical tools, big data solutions and machine learning insights to leverage value from internal and external data assets

BIAS deliver Analytics Platforms, services and solutions to help companies leverage value from the digital workplace through human collaboration across the enterprise

As the volume, velocity and variety of information grows (Big Data) and new technologies and skills (Integrated Data Intelligence Platforms, Cloud Solutions, Advanced Analytics, Machine Learning) evolve to access and make available the consumption of that data, those enterprises who embrace the opportunity will reap the huge untapped value from developing and embedding Data-Driven strategies, cultures and processes to fully engage, communicate and extract business value from the ever-growing data storm.

FOR OVER 12 YEARS THE BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE AND STRATEGY (BIAS) TEAM HAVE BEEN INTEGRATING DISPARATE INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL DATA SOURCES AND DELIVERING INTELLIGENCE PLATFORMS AND SOLUTIONS TO HELP DEVELOP ANALYTICAL MATURITY FOR THEIR CUSTOMERS

It is generally considered there are 5 key stages along the data journey towards this Analytical Maturity

Starting Out
Understanding the Value
Delivering the Platform
Business-Enabled
Data-Driven Culture

There are a number of key foundations and enablers we believe are essential to move along the Maturity Curve:

1.

ALIGNMENT OF DATA SCOPE AND BUSINESS GOALS

In our experience the most successful companies developing their Analytics Maturity have a clear plan and road map of how to align a data strategy with their business goals and shareholder value creation.

Whilst Data is just a raw ingredient the strategy requires an understanding of whole data landscape (including internal v. external, structured v.unstructured). Many companies still take an inside-out view of their data but an outside-in perspective can give a greater context and enable the business community to drive key process improvements and financial value. This stage will often include an evaluation of current stage of an enterprises' Analytics Maturity position.

2.

DATA INTEGRATION

Most companies have some form of data integration but the breadth and depth of this is extremely wide-ranging. Our knowledge of many different internal operational systems and industry specific data landscapes delivers value for our clients.

Our experienced teams help deliver the necessary integrated skills to help ingest the relevant data sources defined in the data scope plan. These will include internal (core operational systems) and external (IOT, Social Media, Data Augmentation) data sources.

3.

ANALYTICAL AND INTELLIGENCE PLATFORMS

BIAS help and advise clients on the best of breed technologies and software products to develop the high end intelligence platforms to enable business users to consume their data.

The best of breed technologies enable enterprises to ingest Big Data volumes, organise in an integrated, secure and governed platform, with fast and responsive advanced analytical tools that can be consumed across the enterprise.

4.

EMBEDDING A DATA-DRIVEN CULTURE

This can often be the hardest component of all for businesses to implement but getting this right is the key to leveraging the greatest value along the data journey.

The success of embedding a data culture is significantly enhanced with strong and robust data intelligence platforms (centralised, organised, governed and accessible with powerful analytics software tools) but the analytical skills of a companies' human resources need to be aligned with the core business processes, KPI's and business strategy.
