What is your industry?

Consulting and Professional Services

Describe your customers

Companies come to us because they want a certain level of intimacy, involvement, control, and influence on the solution. Companies who want a prebuilt package based on repeated templates are not likely to appreciate our approach. They see data as one of their most important assets of their company, and know they need to invest in it.

Many companies will focus on their technical chops (e.g. their focus on big data, their focus on data science). Many companies will vaguely refer to their ability to create business value with data.

We’re different because our philosophy is driven by data, but grounded in science. We understand that big data is a means to an end, not an end in itself. We are experimental, we use experimental methodologies, we follow the concept of business as science.

1. Gather data about the world.
2. Create a hypothesis on how you can affect the world.
3. Experiment.
4. Evaluate and measure the results of your experiment.
5. Implement the results, and change the world.

For us, its about the science. We are not “punks” who think you can build technology just because it’s cool...we do things for a reason. This is based on the philosophies of performance management, so just simple technology development.

Our competitors may deploy some technology for you, but we know you need to focus on how it will be used. We can address the reality of the right techniques and platforms to manage data. We don’t just focus on big, big, big. We’re not predisposed to an answer. We’re not pretentious. We’re not self absorbed. We’re smart, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. That helps us keep improving.

What 3 things do you want your company name to communicate to your customers?

The values we want to convey are that we are:

Talented - We’ve worked very hard to hone our craft. It comes with some natural skills, but it also comes with hard work and practice.

Inventive - The status quo does not work for us. We can do it better, build it better, and make it better.

Collaborative - When we work together, we’ll get a better outcome. We know that we can become excellent if we check our egos at the door and more often than not, listen. By building on each other’s perspectives, we create solutions like no one else.

Experimental - We know that you can’t be the best unless you occasionally fail. We know failing sometimes means that you can become excellent.

Persistent - We don’t give up. Ever. There is nothing that can be dreamed of that can’t be done. We are relentless.

Diverse - Different opinions matter. Different backgrounds matter. Different matters.

Ethical - Not only do we do the right things, we do things right. We follow the better angels of our nature.

What character, tenor, or spirit do you wish to convey?

Pioneering - We’re always starting off on new exploits and new journeys. We’re always preparing before we go there, but having to plan a little doesn’t stop us from getting going.

Daring - We are not afraid to try something new. We take risks, and we know that taking risks is part of making our work extraordinary.

Inspiring - We’ve experienced a lot. We’ve seen a lot. And we want to share it with our customers. We know that when we share our thinking, it ignites a spark in them.

Pragmatic - We are a bit methodical, and we’re always trying to think two or three steps ahead of where we are now. We’re constantly measuring, evaluating and using those outcomes to determine our next course of action.

Encouraging - We know that the kind of work we do is tough. And many companies are new to the domain. We help them get to where they need to be. They can get there, and we can help them.
