Successful business analytics (BA) requires a well thought-out strategy that’s practical, clear, tailored to your needs and rooted in proven best practices. Brightlight Business Analytics, a division of Sirius Computer Solutions, is uniquely qualified to champion the goals of your business and the needs of diverse stakeholders across your organization to help you define, plan and execute all aspects of your BA strategic plan.

Our clients look to us for analytics strategic services in the following areas:

Strategic Assessment

We draw on decades of technical and business management successes to help our clients determine the best BA strategy to achieve their objectives. We can sit down with your business leaders and IT managers to determine which data is best combined to deliver the valuable insight that will drive your business forward. We take a flexible approach that tailors our strategic assessment to your analytics needs — whether it’s a first-time, end-to-end strategic assessment for your entire organization, or periodic strategic assessments to help improve and mature performance throughout the BA lifecycle.

Technology Evaluation

No other BA practice has had the opportunity to work directly with a wider spectrum of tools, technologies and platforms than Brightlight. Drawing on this foundation of broad and deep experience, we can guide you through an unbiased evaluation of technology alternatives to identify the best technical solution for your needs. Our technology evaluations include data warehouse solutions, ETL solutions and reporting solutions.

Roadmap Development

By its nature, successful BA grows and evolves over time. We work with our clients to create a roadmap that helps them look long-term — establishing specific, step-by-step plans to develop an initial BA capability and planning for additional initiatives that will mature and advance the capability across the enterprise. Based on your needs, your roadmap may include architectural recommendations, platform and technology considerations, data stewardship suggestions, and data governance recommendations.

KPI Definition and Mapping

We help many organizations measure the effectiveness of their objectives and key performance indicators (KPIs). We can help define which measurements will enable you to track the effectiveness of your efforts toward those KPIs. We can also analyze which information stores within your enterprise should be tapped and interrogated, yielding the critical information that executives need to measure progress on key initiatives.
