Colaberry Consulting

You know your business. We know data.

Data is everywhere

Whether it’s hardware logs to genetic sequencing, social media to IoT, spreadsheets to very large databases to the page you are reading now, our world had become more quantifiable than most could have imagined. Thanks for Moore’s Law, the cost of collecting and storing Data has become so cheap that you no longer have to ask whether it is “worth it” to store the information. In 2013, research group IMC estimated that there are over 1.45 trillion gigabytes of data stored worldwide, and that number will more than quadruple By 2020.

Using Data to Transform your Business

With all of this data, amazing, transformative things are happening.Things that used to be infeasible because of the level of difficulty combined with the cost of collecting data are now possible by creatively applying scientific principles and methods to design and build tools and processes. At Colaberry, we believe that this is just the beginning. We’re in the midst of an explosion of problems where data and quantitative methods have the power to improve our businesses, governments, and society

Crossing the Data Chasm

Most data projects initially fail because there are two huge bridges to cross on any data project: the bridge between having a problem and understanding how you can address it with data, and the bridge between what you want to accomplish and actually knowing how to do it the right way, the first time.

Colaberry was founded to address these problems

Like anything, there’s a right way and a wrong way to do it. Of course, we’re not the first to understand this,but we believe it’s our people and our approach sets us apart.

Bespoke beats one-size-fits-all

If you have a data opportunity that fits the description above, then, off-the-shelf-boxed solutions, more than likely, don’t exist yet. And depending on your specific problem and how common or uncommon it is, it may never exist. We firmly believe that the way to improve organizations, people, and even society is by employing a bespoke approach to your specific needs, culture, and organizational goals.

A diverse team beats a homogeneous one

You can’t solve right-brained problems with a room full of left-brained thinkers. A properly assembled data team must be able to think of a wide array of potential solutions while continuing to make the right decisions about which ones to scrap and which ones to pursue further. That’s why building a team with diverse skills and backgrounds is as much a strategic decision as anything else; this isn’t opinion, research has proven that diverse teams consistently outperform homogeneous ones at problem solving, creative tasks and decision making. Having focused on building a team with many backgrounds has enabled us to understand and solve a broader set of client problems.

Small and Agile beats Big and over-planned

We understand it’s better for our clients to start small at outset when we often don’t know exactly what problem to solve versus assembling a large team with multiple kickoff meetings that are destined to ignore the fact that in the process of solving the problem, the problem will change. We’ll save you from blindly sinking time and costly resources into things that don’t actually matter or more importantly, produce results
