20 Most Promising Data Analytics Consulting Companies - 2013

Every organization is trying to leverage the data that it has, or that is has access to, much better than they ever have before. It can be tempting to just go out and buy big data analytics software, thinking it will be the answer to your company's business needs. But Big Data analytics technologies alone aren't sufficient to handle the task. Well-planned analytical processes and people with the talent and skills needed to leverage the technologies are essential to carry out an effective Big Data analytics initiative.

Majority of the CIOs do not have adequate resources and skills to pursue Big Data Analytics initiatives. The answer lies in choosing a consulting vendor for the pilot projects—a right vendor who plays across hardware, database, design, and modelling/ analytics.

In the last few months, we have looked at hundreds of data analytics consulting companies and shortlisted the ones who are at the forefront of tackling the real analytics challenges. We present to you CIOReview's 20 Most Promising Data Analytics Consulting Companies. A distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts and the editorial board of CIOReview selected the Final 20.
