LEXINGTON, Mass., Dec. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ironside, a Boston-based data and analytics firm, just released an authoritative list of questions that they recommend business leaders try to answer now in order to succeed with their 2017 analytics initiatives.
Ironside leadership is hopeful that this resource will spark conversations among organizations considering different analytics initiatives in the coming year and get them to think about parts of that process that they have not previously explored.
"This is the time of year when companies start working through annual planning and budgeting for strategic initiatives," says Greg Bonnette, Ironside's VP of Strategy. "We want to help them prioritize data and analytics initiatives to achieve the business outcomes they are targeting and to maximize information-driven value generation in the coming year. That is what spurred us to come up with these readiness questions as a catalyst for business analytics strategic planning."
The questions provoke thought on a range of analytics activities that the firm believes organizations at different levels should prioritize when planning, such as transforming business goals and strategies into an executable data and analytics roadmap, hosting a dashboard design thinking workshop, and planning an analytics system migration to the cloud, among others.
Ironside is headquartered in Lexington, MA with regional offices in Michigan, New York, North Carolina and Texas.
