NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SSA & Company (SSA), a New York-based global management consulting firm, has announced a strategic partnership with enterprise analytics provider InnovAccer. The partnership, which includes an investment by SSA in InnovAccer, will combine SSA's expertise in analytics-based operations improvement with InnovAccer's leading integrated enterprise analytics platforms. Together, the firms will apply advanced analytics techniques such as machine-learning and artificial intelligence to operational transformation methodologies to build platforms that help clients anticipate business issues and capture opportunities.
"Today, advanced analytics provides a huge leadership opportunity to drive efficiency and growth. Yet in reality, many companies spend most of their time ingesting, integrating, and structuring data sources, rather than quickly gleaning data-driven, actionable insights. We are excited to work with a best-in-class partner to drive analytics more deeply and quickly for our clients, and then translate insight into action to deliver ROI," said David Niles, president, SSA & Company and G100 Companies.
"We have developed proprietary tools that make it easy to quickly collect, structure, and manage large datasets—and we're building applications on top of those that use predictive analytics to help companies leverage data to become more strategic," said Abhinav Shashank, cofounder and CEO, InnovAccer. "With SSA's operations expertise and experience in strategy execution, we can apply our end-to-end platforms to solve large and impactful business problems and ensure our solutions deliver tangible value."
SSA is a leader in advanced operations for growth—helping companies drive efficiency and innovation for sustainable growth by applying advanced analytics, new technology tools, and its core heritage of operational transformation.
InnovAccer began its groundbreaking work with 18 of the top 20 academic research institutions—including Harvard Business School, MIT, Stanford, and Wharton—solving problems that required the "mashing-up" of many different data sources into useable schema.
"We look forward to building on the potential of InnovAccer's Datashop platform, which will provide the ability to deliver on business applications and generate rapid results—in weeks, not months—with high ROI across a variety of industries," said Jason Meil, managing director of New Products & Innovation at SSA & Company.
SSA and InnovAccer have already began working together to help some of the world's leading companies on a variety of solutions, including:
Brand Issues Management Platform: Developing a proprietary predictive analytics tool to identify emerging issues and inflection points for one of the world's largest hospitality companies, allowing the operations and communications teams to manage and plan for external risk.
