BI Expertise When and How You Need It

Maintaining a data analytics staff whose knowledge spans the entire BI stack is expensive, if not impractical. Bringing in outside BI expertise makes good sense, as Gartner points out*. But who can you count on to hit the ground running with core competency? Whose skills cross the entire BI stack? And who has multi-platform, bi-modal fluency?  

The answer is Senturus. Our BI support on retainer and staffing services put the breadth and depth of Senturus expertise on tap for organizations to access as needed. Our own consultants come to work with you and for you – BI experts who average 20 years of business analytics and have a keen understanding of the entire BI stack, Cognos, Power BI and Tableau.

We are here for you, when and how you need it. We can

  • Work for you full-time or part-time, according to your needs
  • Build BI stack knowledge and best practices into your team
  • Jumpstart a project or new capabilities
  • Address variable workloads with operational costs
  • Assist with software upgrades and migrations
  • Manage projects

BI EXPERTISE ON RETAINER

Wouldn’t it be great to have an entire team of BI experts on tap, people who know your environment and will promptly assist in whatever role or capacity you need? That’s exactly what you get with our Analytics Alliance Agreement (AAA) retainer.

From staffing and BI system support to help learning new skill sets, the AAA gives you access to the full depth and breadth of Senturus BI knowledge base and resources. You get flexibility and dedicated team players who will hit the ground running and keep your project and your team humming. And if you wish, you can even apply your AAA credit to training and mentoring.

How it works:

Your AAA retainer can be used to meet any BI strategy and staffing needs as they arise.

Familiarity with your environment. We’ll start with a kick-off meeting to get to know your team followed by a formal system health check and assessment. We get to know your environment and unique business needs.

Expertise on tap. We assign you a lead architect—your BI concierge—who works as part of your team and serves as the conduit to meeting all your BI needs.

Personalized support. Choose on-site or remote assistance, full-time or part-time.

Regular communication. We set up regular touchpoint calls at appropriate intervals (weekly, monthly, quarterly) to address your BI questions.

Access to the Senturus knowledge base. Through your lead architect you get access to our highly collaborative team of BI experts. There is no question they can’t answer!

Flexible allocation. Use your retainer for any support needs, including training.

EXPERT STAFFING

Our Expert Staffing service is ideal for filling in gaps in your BI staff, whether that’s to cover a temporary absence or to bring in an expert for an individual role that does not exist within the organization. Whether you need a report writer or a BI architect or something in between, you can count on us to fit in with your team and bring best practices to your BI environment.
