Economics first, then analytics
In the world of business intelligence, big data, and analytics, the majority of experts hail from IT and software programming . . . and not surprisingly, myopically believe that business objectives can and should be solved by coding. According to one report: “The rule of thumb is 100 percent of the Big Data projects go over schedule, 100 percent go over budget, and half of them fail. There are a number of causes for the high failure rate of Big Data projects. Three of the most common are: a) failure to operationalize data insights, b) inefficient tools and processes, and c) a lack of tie in to business goals.`` However, although these three issues are important, the single most obvious problem is that the analysts conducting big data and advanced analytics are not economists and market analysts. Why is this important? This is like having a data scientists and BI analysts who have little to no understanding of or experience in playing baseball attempt to analyze the game. And this is analogous to what is happening in big data and analytics. There are droves and droves of people ``getting into`` big data and analytics . . . but with very little understanding, knowledge, and experience in the fields that matter to business: macroeconomics, microeconomics, revenue management, demand/supply analytics, business strategy, business cycle analysis, sales and marketing, and finance. And this is Competitive Analytics' clear and unique advantage: We are economists, market analysts, and business strategists first . . . and our expertise in big data and advanced analytics is used as tools and processes to help our clients solve business objectives. This is quite different than software programmers who know how to design pretty dashboards, yet have no idea about price elasticity, revenue optimization, demand/supply modeling, product segmentation optimization, consumer behavior, marketing optimization, human resource optimization, and operations optimization. Simply, a deep and experiential knowledge of how the economy, industries, business, and competition work, coupled with expert knowledge of best-in-class software is a far more successful approach than believing IT guys and software coders can understand your business.

Business Centric Focus
We are first and foremost economists, market analysts, and business strategists with experience that merges your specific business objectives with custom business intelligence (BI) solutions. We focus on your business needs and profit maximization strategy first . . . then apply the right technology to accomplish your BI objectives. Often times, business intelligence projects fail because BI becomes a servant to IT. Rather than focusing on IT first, our solution makes IT merely a servant to BI, creating a successful business-centric approach and solution.
We employ an extremely rigorous and innovative analytical approach that has proven to be highly accurate and effective. Our robust methodology is reinforced by our culture of creative thinking. A one-size-fits-all approach to business intelligence does not recognize the nuances of each business and leaves money on the table. Our custom solutions focus on the unique needs of an organization, allowing our clients to build their own perfect BI solution. Our culture has evolved around this concept of customization, and we inject the creativity and out-of-the-box thinking required to deliver custom analytics into everything we do.
Because we have worked with a cross-section of industries, we deliver innovative data insights and solutions that combine the strength of what works within your business and industry with the strengths of what works within other businesses and industries. It is often our cross industry expertise that enables us to solve complex problems which others can’t.
