When you’re embarking on an unconventional path, you can never be quite sure at the onset if it’s going to work out or not.
It has been just over a decade since our co-founders, Patrick Siconolfi and Phil Chen started questioning how traditional data consulting was done. They noticed a large proportion of data and analytics initiatives focused more on the technology to solve data problems rather than taking the time to truly understand and align to the business needs and priorities first.
When Gensquared was formed in 2010, they adopted a different approach to delivering data and analytics to the business. Fast forward to today, and that approach hasn’t changed. Our approach is unique because we take a business-centric approach rather than a technology-first approach to solving large and analytics challenges.
We deliver data and analytics initiatives radically different than our competition because:
1) We take an agile, business-centric approach to solving data analytics initiatives
That means we align business objectives with your key stakeholders and understand your pain points and what you are trying to solve before solely embarking on a data initiative. This makes sure the value of the data initiative is clear to everyone across the organization. The agile approach means we deliver results quickly and often (no need to wait months or years to see value).
2) We take an on-demand approach
We offer a new model for collaboration. Not everyone can have their own data team or have the skills to scale on demand. We pair our knowledge and expertise with your team to help you scale quickly and efficiently.
3) We take a blended team approach
Whether you need to augment to address a skills gap or meet aggressive timelines, our blended team approach helps you build your own internal capabilities. We partner with your team to ensure fast knowledge transfer so you can continue to advance your own data capabilities.
Many Times, Data Analytics Initiatives are Done in Silos
As a result, the initiative doesn’t benefit the entire organization. Since our business-centric approach focuses on aligning stakeholders across the entire enterprise, it helps to add value to each department, turning mountains of data into meaningful insights.
Our end result? Helping you build a data-driven culture across your organization.
While we fundamentally believed this approach would solve today’s data analytics challenges, there was one question on our minds: would companies embrace our approach?
We’re pleased to announce that we have made the 2021 Report on Business list of Canada’s Top Growing Companies
Canada’s Top Growing Companies ranks Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth. We earned a spot with three-year growth of 162%!
I think it’s safe to say, our approach is working. This recognition means a lot to us. It’s a testament…
- That our approach is welcomed and needed.
- That the hard work we’ve done at Gensquared stands out from other firms.
- To the people behind our company – we truly believe it’s the people that make a huge difference in our success.
- To the leading technology partners we work with – solving big data and analytics problems takes a “village”.
Most importantly, it means Gensquared can deliver more value to our customers than ever before.
Of the many successes we’ve shared over the past ten years (two of them: moving The Hudson’s Bay Company – Canada’s largest retailer and Ubisoft off traditional data legacy platforms and on to cloud-based platforms in under a year). It’s these types of success stories that propel us to continue innovating and growing.
So what’s next for Gensquared?
You’ll want to stay tuned to see what we have up our sleeves because this award is just the beginning. We’ve got some exciting new things coming up and can’t wait for you to see what we have in store!
