  • data security and access control
  • compliance with laws; industry best practices
  • data governance
  • needs assessment, business transformation design
  • architectural recommendations, product evaluations, organizational strategy,
    legacy migration plans
  • change management and driving towards a “data-driven organization”

  • Customer journey analysis, engagement and predicting churn
  • Recommendation engines for up-sell/cross-sell
  • Anomaly detection to detect fraud and errors
