Specific areas of focus include product innovation and development, supply chain, procurement and sourcing, manufacturing operations, service operations, and capital asset programs and operations.
The business world constantly changes; thatâ€™s not new. However, what is new is that now itâ€™s affecting how consultants go to market. There are more data points and sources; more desire for hard facts and analytics in decision making; virtually unlimited computing power and storage; and better tools and new approaches. All 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 algorithms and visualizations, with the consultantâ€™s deep industry knowledge and experience, to answer complex business problems that challenge our clients in several industries. By doing this, we differentiate PwC in the marketplace, win more work and deliver outstanding value to our customers.
In the Apps Group, the User Experience Design team is critical to the delivery of usable and useful tools for our consultants. They play a prominent role from the very beginning of our product development process.
