Onepoint IQ’s business-driven (not technology-centric) approach helps our clients to quickly discover and deliver real business value from Big Data technology innovations.
Our Rapid Value Methodology™ takes a structured, step-by-step approach. We involve key stakeholders within your business throughout the Big Data discovery journey. We guide you through the process of identifying and prioritising the highest value business applications relevant to you. We work with your data and IT specialists to quickly develop a technical proof-of-concept with minimal burden to your team and your IT infrastructure. We collaborate with key stakeholders to define and demonstrate the proof-of-value and benefits case. We define pragmatic implementation roadmaps and implement solutions that start delivering business benefits quickly.
Onepoint IQ’s approach to solving our clients’ data challenges (or harnessing your data opportunities) is always underpinned by a focus on identifying and delivering business value quickly.
The Rapid Value Methodology — Step-by-Step
Describe the Big Data landscape
Discuss your data challenges, opportunities
Describe common business applications and sample case studies for inspiration
This is where we bring together specialists from all parts of your organisation (and external experts, if desired) to creatively explore how Big Data innovations could be applied to you.
We design and run a structured workshop attended by multi-disciplinary stakeholders from your organisation. Experts from relevant areas for your organisation should be there, including Products, Sales, Marketing, Operations, Finance, HR, Data / Business Intelligence, IT, Strategy / Innovation, Change Management, among others.
We facilitate a discussion of possible business applications of Big Data technology innovations for your organisation.
We develop a prioritised business applications list, and agree a top business application (or ‘use case’) to take to the proof-of-concept stage.
