SERVICES

M&A ADVISORY
 

The predictive analytics industry is going through a period of rapid growth and transition. This environment provides both opportunities and challenges for emerging companies.  An advisor with deep industry experience and relationships can help achieve an optimal result for businesses seeking an exit.

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

 

Alliances can be effective way to leverage the capabilities and strengths of a partner.  Effective partnerships require an alignment of interests and should have clear objectives and an understanding of the obligations of both parties.

STRATEGIC ADVISORY

 

Outsourcing of strategic planning and corporate development functions can be a cost effective way for companies to best utilize their limited resources and benefit from the domain expertise of an industry expert.

CAPITAL RAISING

 

When seeking early-stage growth capital, it is important to identify a financial partner who understands the industry and offers the right type of support, beyond just capital, as a company manages its growth. 

 

THE MISSION

The data analytics field has been around since the dawn of the computer age, but really matured in the 1990’s as the means to operationalize data based decisions into business processes became feasible and more economical.  Through this period, the commercial application of analytics was mostly utilized in large, regulated, data-intensive industries such as financial services, health care as well as the public sector.

 

Then, from the mid-1990’s a couple of seismic shifts took place which have driven the growth of analytics into the mainstream and into all industry sectors.  The first, not surprisingly, is the emergence of the internet and, more specifically, the explosion in transactional activity and consumer preference information gathered by the likes of Google, Amazon, Facebook and others giving rise to the big data phenomenon, referencing the explosion in the volume, variety and velocity of data flows and the migration of business to the cloud.  Alongside this development has been continuing rapid advances in computing capabilities which has facilitated the automation of many analytics functions.

 

The data analytics industry has grown up around and in response to these trends. Today, data analytics capability is a core capability for companies seeking to make better business decisions and gain a competitive advantage.

 

The mission of Marin Analytic Consulting is to help serve established and  emerging companies as an outsourced strategic and business advisor as they navigate their way through the myriad challenges confronting companies in the data and analytics space.
