CDO Advisors: Bringing Predictive Analytics to SMBs

Derek Wilson, Founder & CEO
While data analytics solutions such as BI and predictive analytics have already emerged as an integral factor in bolstering the value chain of big businesses, the Small and Medium Businesses (SMB) are yet far from leveraging their impeccable benefits. The existing rumor that these services are highly expensive, and the challenge of poor data quality and sheer lack of awareness on progressive technology, have become the biggest blocks in preventing SMBs from availing data analytical services. Drawn by the situation, Derek Wilson, an astute entrepreneur endeavored on a journey to aid SMBs to extract maximum value from their data sets. Thus, saw the creation of CDO Advisors, the IT advisory and consultant firm, providing end-to-end data services ranging from data management, business intelligence, predictive analytics, to data vaulting, and virtual chief data officer services.

“Unlike the conventional data solution providers, we enter into a symbiotic partnership with SMBs to offer customized data services,” states Wilson, Founder and CEO, CDO Advisors. CDO Advisors’ flagship offering, the advanced BI services include data warehousing that facilitates the creation of single data sources to enable data-driven decisions. The company’s Power BI service helps SMBs build and deploy Microsoft Power BI solutions to create interactive dashboards and visualizations. Its data integration service offers seamless unification of both on-premise and cloud data storages. Lastly, CDO Advisors’ Power BI Assessment Engagement renders detailed reviews of clients’ BI environments. Thus, helping the clients transform their business abilities through BI engagement.

CDO Advisors recognizes that just BI is not enough to help SMBs advance in a world of cut throat competition, as a result, it has come to offer advance predictive analytics services to SMBs. CDO Advisors provides credentialed consulting, training, and assessments of RapidMiner, a data science platform, facilitating its optimum utilization by SMBs to predictive analytics. The company’s RapidMiner powered predictive analytics services empower SMBs with ingenious abilities such as what are the customers more likely to buy, which customers are more likely to churn, who are more likely to accept a marketing campaign and more.


Our focus is not on the technology but on the business problem and providing a solution that starts delivering value within 3 to 4 months


Henceforth, helping SMBs carryout the best decisions to optimize marketing campaigns, improve working operations, and increase revenue. “Our focus is not on the technology but on the business problem and providing a solution that starts delivering value within 3 to 4 months,” remarks Wilson.

In addition, CDO Advisors has emerged as one of the first firms to offer virtual Chief Data Officer (CDO) Services. Recognizing the burdening cost imperatives which SMBs face in employing full-time CDOs, the company offers cost-effective virtual CDO services. The virtual CDO services help SMBs with enterprise information strategy, roadmaps, data management, and other related activities, helping them move ahead in the right direction.

In an instance, an emerging IT firm possessed a plethora of applications and had data disbursed globally. The firm found it laborious to move data and establish consolidated information about the organizational health. Enter CDO Advisors; it first made an incisive analysis of the executive team’s requirement of critical data elements for the consolidated report. Based on which, it then helped them build a central repository, to gather information from across the globe and interactive dashboards to visualize data, thus helping them carry out valuable decisions.

As CDO Advisors move ahead, it looks forward to bolstering the quality of their services further. It is fueled with the ambition to not only get small companies adopting predictive analytics but help them move beyond.
