Leveraging Big Data to Maximize Business Value

NewVantage helps clients leverage their data assets to realize business value:

  • Gain business insights faster and with greater flexibility
  • Transform critical business processes to be more nimble and cost-effective
  • Ensure business value through successful business adoption and results.

Core areas of expertise include data strategy, data governance, data architecture, data integration, and business alignment and adoption.

Big Data Fast Track Execution Program

NewVantage Partners ‘Big Data Fast Track Program’ encompasses four core capabilities:

  • Strategy — Ideation, conception, and design of a Big Data and Analytics environment that is business-driven and tied to business value. The strategy includes identifying business drivers, assessing current capabilities and gaps, defining future state objectives, and developing the execution roadmap and business case.
  • Proof of Concept — Fast-track validation of strategy and business benefits by establishing a sample Big Data Analytics and reporting environment using Big Data technologies and approaches for speed and flexibility — resulting in validation and demonstrated value within 60-90 days.
  • Execution — Rapid design and implementation of a Big Data analytics and reporting environment that enables critical business objectives — resulting in an operational Big Data environment within 12-16 weeks.
  • Big Data Solutions Center — Fast track Big Data implementation efforts through a remote hosted environment, enabling test-and-learn analysis without a large financial commitment for technology and infrastructure investment.

 ‘Data First’ Approach

NewVantage’s ‘Data First’ approach targets getting more value, faster and at comparable or lower cost to implement.

Data First ensures maximum value in the shortest possible delivery time by targeting data content — how to get at it, break it down, analyze it, mine it, scrape it, and link it with existing relational data to create new insights, new analytic views, new business opportunities. It also assesses potential cost reductions by considering the use of big data technologies resulting in less dependence on higher cost software and platforms over time.

  • It’s all about the data. The “known” or traditional approaches to sourcing, loading, processing and enriching data are shifting under the sands of Big Data. NewVantage understand the “new” approach using Big Data technologies which value speed to market and flexible loading paradigms – images, video, semi-structured XML files, text and other formats can all be loaded into a Hadoop filesystem, for example, “as is”.
  • It’s not about throwing out the old. NewVantage understands that it’s equally important to use and capitalize on the known or existing data warehouses and be able to integrate with the “new” approach to get the best of breed from both platforms.

Quick Wins

NewVantage believes that firms can accelerate business value through “quick wins” that demonstrate business value, build organizational support and momentum, and provide a foundation for innovation and long-term success.

Using our ‘FastTrack’ framework and methodologies, founded on Big Data principles and approaches, organizations can undertake Proof of Concepts that demonstrate rapid value and enables clients to derive a series of concrete business benefits:

  • Gain business insights faster and with greater flexibility
  • Transform critical business processes to be more nimble and cost-effective
  • Enable analytics in weeks rather than months
  • Ensure business value through successful business adoption and results
