Professional Services, Business Research & Analytics

Today's clients face increasingly complex business and technology decisions. Challenges of e-commerce, advanced technologies, market share, profitability, outsourcing, diminishing customer loyalty and intense market competition are steering decision makers to base their decisions on strong data-backed insights and knowledge capital. Hence the strong imperative to build competitive advantage by attracting and recruiting highly qualified, professional knowledge workers across Services Advisory, Consulting, Business Research, Domain-Research and Analytics.

Business Research and Analytics helps clients understand, strategize, and take strategic decisions based on meaningful analysis of the opportunities prevalent in the business environment. The multidisciplinary reach and impact of Business Research and Analytics enables analysis of trends in customer preferences, segmentation, ecommerce, brand building, web user experience, mobile analytics, competitive intelligence, digital marketing, media mix, vendor management and sourcing strategies. Business Research and Analytical processes are often focused on uncovering data insights that can deliver immediate competitive advantages through smarter customer interactions; more targeted marketing campaigns, and less wasteful operations, among other benefits.

Growing interest in business research and analytics is driving implementation of newer technologies that allow deeper discovery of large volumes of raw data for arriving business related conclusions and predicting business outcomes.

Data has swept into every industry and business function and is now an important factor of production, service delivery and profitability. Banking and Financial and Service industries have been significant users of Professional Research and Analytics services followed by FMCG, Retail, Healthcare, Pharmaceutical and Travel.

As leading organizations become increasingly sophisticated in their use of Analytics to reengineer their business intelligence, competition for good analytical talent is becoming more intense.

Successful Talent in this domain requires in-depth- domain expertise, mastery of market insight in the domain, a base set of technical skills and a skilled presentation of such insight.
