Need help translating your data?


You know the answers to many of your questions lie within your data but with legacy databases and fragmented systems, how do you find those answers?

The Rising Analytics team is made up of Data Scientists who translate "geek speak" into business speak.

We are subject matter experts who identify and execute measurement initiatives on behalf of our clients.

We provide analytical services focused on effective measurement of business activity. It takes a specialized skill set to extract insights from data and turn insights into action.


What Our Clients Are Saying

"From very early on, we knew that there were opportunities where the Rising Analytics team would be able to help us run the business more effectively. We had a gap in analytics. Reports were available through our order management system, but there was a lot of work to be done to pull that into cohesive information.”



"Using their analytic skills, the Rising Analytics team would suggest how to use this program to get consumers to come into their store and buy more stuff. They not only have an incredible knowledge base but also technical prowess, understanding data and how to use it. They had the unique ability to translate complicated data to build a narrative to explain how and why it was important to use that data .”

"The world of data analytics and big data is a relatively new discipline. So people come to it with different backgrounds: some from IT and software development; some from a statistics background; some from a science and  analysis background. But what you invariably run into when you are looking at a problem is that you need some of the skill of each of them at any given moment. Rising Analytics is a Swiss army knife, they bring all of these different tools to the table.

The team has such a breadth of practical application of analytics that they look at every problem through a wide prism. From a client perspective and as a business partner that is invaluable.

Rising Analytics is unique in their willingness to share the “special sauce.” They didn't just produce the model, they helped me build my team to have the skill sets embedded in the organization."
