What is data analytics consulting?

Data science is a very large umbrella term that includes a large number of concentrations and approaches to leveraging available metrics and bringing actionable insights to light. Business intelligence, predictive analytics, and descriptive analytics are just a few of the approaches an organization might consider, and each one is used with a specific goal and purpose in mind.

It's a complicated field, and there's an ocean of knowledge and experience separating mature data analytics users and newcomers. To bridge that gulf, companies can turn to data analytics services and consulting experts. Whether you need to build a data analytics platform from scratch, get advice on an ongoing project, map out your analytics strategy, or receive guidance on implementing data science more extensively across your organization, One Six Solutions can help.

What are the core aspects of data analysis?

Every company or organization has a huge repository of information to pull from to fuel their data analytics projects, but getting started takes a good amount of preparation. There are several components to a successful analytics strategy.

Data lakes and warehouses

Data needs to live somewhere, and if left siloed in different databases, analysts and other stakeholders will have a lot of trouble pulling that information into their advanced analytics projects. Without a centralized data warehouse or data lake that can capture data in real time, organizations may fail to see the whole picture when they execute their analytics projects. Data lakes and warehouses can:

  • Knock down data silos
  • Concentrate your data governance and collection efforts in one place
  • Establish a centralized command center for your analytics strategy

Data analytics software

Successful advanced analytics projects pull various types of data (both structured and unstructured) from many sources, visualize those metrics and highlight important takeaways that can guide business decision-making. There are many different software platforms that can assist these efforts, and One Six Solutions can help you get the best performance out of leading solutions such as:

  • Tableau
  • Power BI
  • Qlik
  • Matillion
  • And many more
