Business Goals & Desired Solutions

Data is useless without clear objectives. The F.A.R.M.™ strategic framework will help you define the objectives of your data and analytics program for your food business. Because strategy is more than just technology, we help you harvest the right data, people, and processes to support improved quality, throughput, productivity, and distribution.

Data Infrastructure & Governance

Are legacy systems holding you back? Are your cloud investments delivering on their promise? How are data silos or a heavy reliance on spreadsheets limiting your food business? Using the F.A.R.M.™ diagnostic tool, we help answer these questions and more. We assess your resources and identify gaps that are causing you to fall behind.

Analytics Maturity Assessment

Are you ripe for Data Science? Our assessment will help you benchmark the maturity of your current data and analytics capabilities. Our gap analysis will identify the data and available skills needed to transform raw data into useful knowledge. We then pinpoint the areas that may need more time or attention.

Define & Design Key Metrics
