Turning data into insights you can action

Here at NOW Consulting, we’re passionate about using data smarter.

Analytics and visualisation

Are you focusing on the right things to get results?

Data and analytics are critical to the success of the contemporary business. Effective analytics requires a blend of people, process and technology and an understanding of how one affects the other – and that’s where we can help.

At NOW, we understand that developing your analytics capability is a journey and that choosing the right projects for your analytics maturity and for your environment is vital to success. We provide the strategic advice to help you make the right decision and we provide the services to help you on your way, from training and mentoring, to tool selection, governance and architecture services.

We can help you understand what’s possible – and then we’ll help you make it happen.

Data integration

Are you hearing what your data is telling you?

To use data effectively, it’s vital to make decisions based on facts – not feelings. It sounds simple, but it's not always easy. With large amounts of data coming from lots of different places in a variety of different formats, it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction.

Data integration delivers information smoothly through a single source of truth that’s simple to analyse and a valuable tool to aid your business decisions. Data is typically a company’s most precious resource. Let us help you refine and use it to your best advantage.

Data strategy

Are you getting what you need from your data strategy?

Our experience of strategy documents is that they end up at the bottom of the CIO’s draw. Their inflexible, long term view doesn’t work.

Our data strategy services provide a pragmatic approach to using data and analytics to transform your business.

At NOW, our strategy documents give you everything you need to deliver a successful data and analytics program.  We create strategies your data and analytics team can sink their teeth into and give your data & analytics capabilities momentum – for faster, stronger results.
