Business Analytics the Wilson Way

Wilson Allen brings decades of experience in systems integration, data modeling, visualizations, and analytics to partner with firms to deliver faster against its analytic roadmap. We bring developers, business analysts, domain expertise, data science, and facility with the best-of-breed technologies that you need to achieve your goals.

The Wilson Way works because it’s unique — and built to be better than traditional approaches to BI:

Approach & Context

We focus on the full client engagement life cycle – well beyond traditional, finance-centric data and metrics. Our decades of business development and acceptance experience makes us uniquely qualified to help firms not only develop data, but utilize insight.

Scoping & Delivery

We do “standard”. From utilization and realization through profitability and working capital management, we can help implement best practices. We can also help firms deliver on the unique projects in business development (client engagement, campaign analysis, relationship strength, pricing, etc) as well as business acceptance/intake and client feedback.

Technology & Data

The Wilson Way is technology neutral. Firms have already selected warehousing, dashboarding, reporting, and visualization tools. We help firms evaluate new technology where available but emphasize driving greater value from existing investments. Our partnerships, with Microsoft and most of the major and emerging technology providers in the industry, mean that we are well placed to advise firms on their roadmaps. Plus our roots in data integration and governance make us an invaluable partner to CIOs who worry about creating data “Frankensteins”.

Finally, firms looking to modernize the technology approach in analytics find Wilson to be an ideal partner. Regardless of your firm’s position on the analytics maturity curve, our approach is simple:

  • Assess the current state

  • Assist in developing short- and long-term roadmaps

  • Extend the capabilities native to the firm in executing on the roadmap

  • Rinse and repeat
