The Analytics Solutions Center of Excellence – Saama’s End-to-End Organizational Approach for Big Data and Analytics

Saama Technologies, Inc., a leading pure-play data and analytics solutions and services company, today announced its Saama Analytics Solutions Center of Excellence (COE), an organizational design approach that enables business units and IT groups to leverage big data and data science, and collaboratively build valuable actionable insights quickly and expertly. Using this approach, it is possible to deliver meaningful results for business-focused solutions, such as churn analytics, patient engagement analytics, fraud analytics, service analytics, clinical operations analytics, and customer buying pattern analytics within three months.

Success in today’s enterprise is clearly dependent on the business’ ability to make the smartest data-driven decisions in compressed timeframes. With the advent of big data and advanced analytics, business units within the enterprise are looking for advanced data science to help them with very specific business problems, but typically IT organizations are focused on larger infrastructure projects. Saama’s advanced data science and domain expertise offered in its Analytics Solutions COE brings organizations a new way to approach the data deluge challenge of making the most of the structured, semi-structured, unstructured and syndicated data sets available today. Saama can help quickly harness this data using its repeatable Saama Analytics Framework, vividSENSE™, a unique backbone of core technologies upon which industry or function specific big data and analytics solutions can be rapidly built.

The Analytics Solutions COE makes Saama’s proven set of organizational design and process methodologies, in combination with the Saama Analytics Framework, accessible to organizations to help build the capabilities, processes, and infrastructure to unleash the power of business analytics. Core offerings of Saama Analytics Solutions COE include:

  • Needs assessment, prioritizing and planning for analytics roadmap
  • Business-oriented data governance and management
  • Business change management that enables insight to drive real and meaningful business process change within the organization
  • Business value (ROI) costing and pricing models
  • Flexible support models that provide for changing requirements
  • Platform agnostic Framework with reusable components that can leverage existing data infrastructure and business intelligence investments

“We’re entering an era where IT responsibilities for data and analytics go well beyond developing infrastructure, deploying tools and responding to service requests,” says Todd Johnson, executive VP and chief operating officer of Saama Technologies. “Saama Analytics Solutions Center of Excellence can help IT organizations create a process for meeting the needs of those line of business leaders that want more out of their data than what they can gain from standard reporting. Our Analytics Solutions COE allows IT to create a nimble environment for data solutions that can quickly provide business units the advanced data insights they are seeking.”

Saama is fast becoming a sought after leader in advanced analytics. The company recently announced its Business Consulting Practice, which focuses on addressing challenges of implementing business analytics. Saama also has extensive domain expertise in technology & media, insurance, life sciences, healthcare, consumer packaged goods and government industries that allow Saama to better relate to its customers’ key business challenges and makes the repeatable portions of the Saama Analytics Framework extremely valuable.
