The business world constantly changes, thatâ€™s not new. However, what is new is that this time itâ€™s affecting how consultants go to market. More data points and sources; more desire for hard facts and analytics in decision making; virtually unlimited computing power and storage; better tools and new approaches â€“ all of these changes have created an unprecedented opportunity to deliver better insights and real value at lower costs than ever before.
In the Analytic Apps group our goal is to use those trends and changes to build offerings that help make our consultants look brilliant in front of clients. We integrate data, proprietary analytic algorithms and visualizations, with the consultantâ€™s deep industry knowledge and experience to answer complex business problems that challenge our clients in several industries.

Weâ€™re looking for innovative, insightful, collaborative and truly high quality people to help us deliver on this vision and to impact the way the firm delivers value to our customers.
