Whether it’s going through data line by line, or using AI and Machine Learning, our team will analyze the problem data for patterns, and other insights that may have been missed.

Data Storytelling

After our in-depth analysis, our experts review business and technology workflows to provide a story to business leaders in order to show the reality of business workflow at present, and what changes may look like.

But How Do We Get Those Analytics?

Data Collection First

To understand the challenge of being able to report on, and view graphical representations of the data mentioned above, you must have the foundational stage of data collection, and data storage in an acceptable state.  Many mid-market companies do not have the resources to do this properly, which means they lack the visibility into critical parts of their business.

Data Engineering Architects

This is where SPK and Associates shines.  Our team understands how small companies grow into mid-market companies.  We understand how large organizations can have data everywhere but not aggregated in order to make good decisions.  Our experts know the differences between databases, data warehouses and data lakes and know when to use each.  In most instances, we start with data cataloging which will help organize the data lake where you can attribute the type of data, what information it contains and what it doesn’t.  This is where your data becomes more structured.  Data pipelines are the glue between all the steps of the data collection lifecycle.  Having a data data pipeline allows you to bringing the data in repeatedly.  Our team can help create your data pipeline from source of data to consumption of analytics using extract, transform, and load (ETL).
