Data & Analytics

Data and Analytics

Companies have more data—and more ways to use it—than ever before. What they don’t have is time. BCG’s experts in AI and data and analytics strategy build the platforms and the organizations that turn opportunities into value. Fast.

Data is everywhere, streaming across our world through a growing array of sensors, applications, and business models. Much less common, though, are companies that actually use data and analytics to transform what they do and how they do it. Becoming a data-driven organization isn’t easy. It requires not only a vision but a foundation of the right data assets, data governance, talent, and culture. It means getting data out of silos, adopting new ways of working, and developing new skills and even new mindsets. It takes focus—a relentless one—on business outcomes.

In the right environment, with the right enablers, data and analytics drive growth. We develop the strategic, technical, and human capabilities that take companies from vision to value—and create truly data-driven bionic organizations.
