Infuse Expertise into Your Data-Intensive Projects
2-WEEK DATA-INTENSIVE INITIATIVE JUMPSTART
Are you planning a data-intensive initiative? Targeted Marketing, Predictive Maintenance, Internet-of-Things, Customer Retention or most any other modern initiative are data-intensive. Their success is largely dependent on access to high-performing, high-quality, supported and understandable data. You may be planning to build or improve a leverageable platform such as a data lake or a data warehouse to support the initiative.
PROOF OF CONCEPTS AND MINIMUM VIABLE PRODUCTS
Are you planning to launch a cloud data warehouse, a Big Data/NoSQL/Hadoop/Cloud Storage/Data Lake structure, Master Data Management, or a Data Integration/Prep/Streaming project? These need to be built to give users and applications access to high-performing, high-quality, supported and understandable data, and need to built as agile. This agile need means producing an MVP (minimum viable product) or Proof of Concept (POC), with the ability to expand from there.

Build the Leveragable Data Structures Your Company Needs
Our Benchmark reports help buyers make informed decisions based on rigorous, hands-on testing. The Benchmark focus can be on Performance, Total-Cost-of-Ownership, Ease-of-Use, Functionality, Time-to-Value or Energy Consumption. They can be competitive or solo, published or internal. We can also create comfort for the buyer with your value proposition with our "Day in the Life Of" research. We’ve done 50+ benchmarks: databases (analytical, operational), data lake, data integration, APIs, AI, data science, Kubernetes, security, search, others. They are hugely impactful.
COMPETITIVE MARKET RESEARCH AND TRAINING
We build competitive analysis that highlights the value propositions and challenges of the competitors. We provide McKnight Enterprise Contribution Ranking Reports, McKnight Vital Indicators for Measuring Enterprise Contribution, McKnight Vital Indicators Compliance Assessment, and Industry Teardowns. We help companies understand and navigate their competitive landscape. We offer in-house Competitive Workshops for your competitive, product and sales teams on the cloud data warehouse, Big Data/NoSQL/Hadoop/Cloud Storage/Data Lake, Master Data Management, and Data Integration/Prep/Streaming markets.
Do you need a demonstration built to highlight the increasingly important capabilities organizations need for managing modern data uses and empowering digital strategies, and the capabilities of your product for solving the challenges? These are useful as website-based demonstrations or as a sales enablement tool. They are used in conference booths or as a critical data point in your product roadmap.
In the information management market standing out from your competition is challenging. Product differentiation and market messages are becoming difficult to distinguish in the increasing crowded market. Using our unique voice, we'll talk about a theme important to you and the market and tie your product to it, as merited by our expertise.
