Our early careers were spent in a range of industries and organisations and during this time, one thing we consistently observed was that while there is an abundance of vendors offering good technical data solutions and equally strong offerings for training and business engagement, no-one was offering a complete end-to-end service for Data. We want to change that.
Your data is only as effective as the people using it. Whilst Data and Analytics tooling and technology is possibly advancing more rapidly than any other technology field today, no matter how much you invest in technology, without the right people and the right culture, you will never maximise the true value of your data. When the culture is right the results will follow.
How do we do it? It's quite simple - we start with the Business and we end with the Business. Using 20 years+ experience and our tried and tested Data frameworks and methodologies, we work with our customers to craft business-driven solutions and see them through to effective user adoption.
We're not a company for whom data is ‘one arm of many services', we are 100% dedicated to Data and Analytics. Our team are not just technical. We have vast business experience, both strategic and operational. And an important part of our recruitment process is that the members of our team have worked in Industry. So we have been the Customer. We've 'walked in your shoes' and we understand your challenges.
You, our customers, are at the core of everything Clear Strategy does. We will never to be too big to do the small things that matter. And we let our customers praise our virtues via our 'Customer Success Index', which is Clear Strategy's core KPI.
