Objectives and Key Deliverables
We are a private equity fund facing a challenge in one of our portfolio companies (based North of London) in that they have multiple, disparate sets of data, which are often large, and their current excel based tools struggle to deal with them. The analysis of data to inform decisions is presently inefficient and very time consuming.
We are looking to find someone who has helped businesses facing similar challenges to understand what their options are to start to rectify this situation (with a strong focus on cost as this is a small business of 30-40 people and a full blown data warehouse is likely to be overkill). Therefore, this project will be multi-phase starting with diagnosis, assessing potential solutions, then support the business in getting up and running with some new tools.
We suspect this involves moving to Power BI / Tableau or similar rather than their current excel tools, but the team aren't familiar with these those tools and so a big part of it would be setting things up for them and upskilling the team.
Experience with CPQ (configure / price / quote) software would be an added bonus as that is also something the business is looking into.
We are hoping to review a range of profiles junior/mid-level/senior so please quote a day rate that is appropriate for your level of experience. We are also unsure on the duration this project would take.
We have a similar data issue at another portfolio in which the architecture of technology and data are not aligned, so would consider consultants for this business too, however this project is likely further down the road.
