Data Analytics Consulting - List of 200+ Firms (2024)

CEO, Portable

What is Data Analytics Consulting?

A data analytics consulting firm helps to identify or improve how your company can extract insights from data, and they can kickstart a data function for your company. Two scenarios to hire a data analytics consultant are 1) data strategy and 2) business intelligence optimization.

1. Data strategy - Your business has started collecting data, or it needs to. How should you start thinking about business intelligence? Data analytics consultants can serve as a temporary stand-in for a full-time "Head of Data", making recommendations for how you should think about data strategy and ETL Architecture.

2. Business intelligence optimization - The modern data stack has changed the way companies think about leveraging data beyond dashboards. Data analytics consultants can help you understand how you can learn more from your data, and combine data from different sources, to achieve your business's goals.

Whether you are looking for data strategy or business intelligence optimization, you should consider three options to accomplish your goal:

  1. Develop a solution in-house
  2. Buy a product off-the-shelf
  3. Engage a consultant

If you need a consultant that can build and manage custom ETL pipelines that load data into your cloud data warehouse, Portable can help.

Portable builds custom data pipelines so your business intelligence team can focus on data analysis.

Which Specific Projects Can a Data Analytics Consultant Take On?

Data analytics consultants can take on projects that include:

  • Data analysis asssessment

  • Building a single, unified view of your data

  • Designing a lightweight data stack

  • Modern data stack architecture

  • ETL architecture

How Should You Evaluate Data Analytics Consulting Firms?

When evaluating a data analytics consultant you should follow these 5 steps:

1. Define your data analytics goals

2. Outline a project description or job description

3. Evaluate the available consulting firms

4. Refine your options and check references

5. Begin with a data analytics project that is small in scope

Step 1: Define your data analytics goals

When you consider hiring a consultant or a full-time employee, it's important to understand:

  1. The value they can create

  2. The amount it will cost

Data analytics consultants can drive value from either:

  1. Data analytics - Better decision-making

  2. Process automation - Replacing manual business processes with technology

  3. Product development - Generating revenue from client adoption

Start by outlining the specific projects you believe will create the most value and then identify any vertical-specific requirements (healthcare, e-commerce, marketing, etc.) that need to be taken into account.

Once you have defined how a data analytics consultant can create value, you then need to understand the cost to make such an investment.

For instance, if you were hiring a full-time employee, the cost is mostly the result of salary range and benefits. When considering a consultant, you need to understand the project costs, hourly costs, or retainer pricing model that will be required.

Step 2: Outline a project description or job description

Once you understand the path to value creation and the necessary level of investment to make progress against your goals, you need a clear description of the role and responsibilities.

This is where a project description will come in handy.

In the project description, you should outline the project title, pay range, and business requirements. You should also consider including:

  • Communication skills required

  • Years of experience with data analytics

  • Remote vs. onsite work expectations

  • Relevant expertise in project management methodologies (agile, waterfall)

  • Knowledge of your specific technology stack and tooling (Salesforce, Zendesk, NetSuite, IBM, Oracle, SQL Server, etc.)

  • Technical knowledge (software development, SQL, software engineering, AWS, GCP, Azure, Unix, data engineering, information technology, etc.)

  • Education (when applicable - bachelor's degree, computer science, engineering boot camp, etc.)

Don't forget to check local, state, and federal laws to make sure you hire fairly and include the necessary details in your project description.

Step 3: Evaluate the available consulting firms

It's now time to evaluate your options.

Where can you discover consulting firms? We've included the full list of 175+ data consultants above that could be a fit.

We recommend setting up introductory meetings with as many companies as you can. Most of these firms will have a 'Contact Us' form or a 'Schedule An Introductory Meeting' button on their website where you can get in touch.

Within a couple of hours, you can schedule 20+ meetings and start identifying the most promising partners.

Step 4: Refine your options and check references

As you identify the data analytics consultancies that could be the best fit, make sure to get references, evaluate projects, and ask for testimonials and case studies.

External certification, validation, and social proof do not guarantee a great experience, but a lack of external validation is a good sign that you should do more research before signing up for a big project.

Step 5: Begin with a data analytics project that is small in scope

Regardless of the consultant you choose, it's always a best practice to start small.

If you can begin with a month-to-month agreement or work on an hourly or project-based model for a few weeks, it allows you to evaluate a few key things:

  • Will you have a good working relationship with the consultant?

  • Is the consultant responsible?

  • Is the consultant able to communicate effectively?

  • Are the deliverables produced of high quality?

As you see success, you can always increase the scope of your relationship, or even decide to hire a full-time employee if the scope becomes large enough.

One common way to get started with a data analytics consultant is by building a custom ETL pipeline.

If that's what you're looking for, Portable can help.

Does Portable Offer Data Analytics Consulting Services?

Portable is a cloud-hosted ETL tool (we offer a product, not a service). While we do not sell data analytics consulting services, we do build custom ETL (extract, transform, load) integrations on-demand for clients as part of our product offering, for free.

We have spent years building a platform on which we can build no-code ETL integrations for clients. As a result, we can build net new custom ETL connectors in hours or days and optimize them to your requirements.

Because we specialize in ETL pipelines, you will receive out-of-the-box notifications, data quality, and governance that you might not receive from a consultant.
