In a Tight Market for Data Talent 451 Research Says Clarity Solution Group "Differentiates Itself"

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - June 28, 2016) - While many mid-size consulting firms are struggling to differentiate themselves in the buzzing world of Big Data analytics, 451 Research recently initiated coverage of Clarity Solution Group highlighting what they are doing to separate themselves from the pack.

According to 451 Research's Dr. Katy Ring, "Clarity is in a good position to take advantage of this market opportunity with its approach to talent sourcing, its cross-industry knowledge and its full data stack expertise. It has as much (if not more, in some cases) experience as teams fielded by larger global players, and can deliver projects at lower cost."

Clarity's integrated People Office helps drive the talent strategy Dr. King refers to. Using a "People Architecture" the team focuses on creating multi-dimensional skills across the employee experience. This results in Clarity being able to field agile teams that can work across all dimensions of a project, often resulting in fewer consultants needed to deliver the right business outcomes."

According to Clarity's Chief People Officer, Angela Cinefro, "We hire and develop people who are smart, passionate about helping our clients win, and genuinely care about their colleagues. Because of our focus on data and analytics services, all of our resources -- people, learning investments, and employee performance accelerators -- can be 100% focused on building the skills among that talented group."

Because this program is a long-term investment in its people, Clarity sets a high bar in its hiring practices through rigorous interviewing and precision sourcing. This results in less than 10% of hires coming from outside search firms, and the percentage of candidates who ultimately receive an offer is similarly low ensuring a continued focus on quality and culture fit.

Dr. Ring also highlighted two key areas of Clarity's functional expertise that stood out: it's Hadoop on Wheels framework and its Machine Learning capability.

Hadoop on Wheels (HoW) is a framework that allows larger companies to gain the benefits of this big data technology, without sacrificing key issues such as security and governance. Many times companies do no anticipate these issues, which can leave projects stalled by security and compliance questions.

Machine learning is one of the core capabilities that Clarity uses to help clients create better business outcomes. The company has developed its own reusable tool that can work across industries to speed a client's time to actionable results. The types of problems Clarity's tools help solve include:

  • Genetic search to optimize a basket of choices
  • Extracting features and data from verbose text
  • Micro segmentation

According to Dr. Ring, all of this adds up to a company that is,"small enough to engage wholeheartedly with clients, but large enough to be a viable part­ner for its large clients."

"Clarity is in a unique position in the market to deliver high quality and high value to its clients," says Tom Thimot, Clarity's CEO. A common complaint among large consulting firm clients is that they pay "A" team rates and the "B" or "C" team shows up to do the work. As the largest onshore data and analytics consultancy, Clarity has earned a high reputation among the most innovative adopters of BI-Analytics for delivering top talent to solve their most challenging analytics business priorities.
