The Triple Helix Approach
How We Help
Building Data and Technology Solutions That Make It Easier to Run Your Business
How well an organization manages its business-critical data has become a major factor in determining its success. The opportunity to strategically impact our clients’ businesses is our primary motivation.
To have this type of strategic influence, we need to understand how a company’s business operations are impeded by data-related issues. We identify the barriers blocking sales and profitability, the operational pain points, the unrealized potential residing in the data.
The barriers and pain points serve as starting points for what we do as data management experts. In the end, our analysis is technology and data-driven, but the recommendations we make are in plain language that everyone in the organization can comprehend and act on.
The impacts our solutions have are as varied as the companies we have helped. We are best known for:
- Helping organizations with data management by determining the best approaches for managing their critical data.
- Streamlining inefficient workflow processes.
- Providing real-time visibility to information that is hard to access.
- Integrating data stored in siloed systems that don’t talk to one another.
- Analyzing data using methods that enable smarter, quicker decision making.
- Designing and managing professional-looking, functionally-sound websites.
A Unique Combination of Knowledge and Experience
We are technologists who focus first on defining the business problem and second on what technology should be applied to fix the issue. Too many IT departments and technology consultants do it the other way around, which results in inaccurately defined problems and projects that go awry.
We hire people who are naturally curious and passionate about contributing to other peoples’ success — two incredibly important attributes to have when tackling data challenges. Without them, the right questions will not get asked and the best resolution ideas will not surface.
We focus on projects that produce quick and measurable ROI for clients.
We use a phased approach, beginning with a short discovery step that allows us to accurately and mutually define what a client needs before any work on a solution gets started. This greatly reduces the risk of starting down the wrong path and allows clients to control budgets and measure outcomes more easily.
We are proponents of open source software. It is more cost-effective from a licensing standpoint, savings which can be passed along to clients. It also enables us to build more adaptable, modular and scalable solutions for clients than most proprietary software solutions can support.
A Passion for Problem Solving
Our expertise is working with data, but our passion is solving problems. Pre-packaged solutions offer one way to solve data problems, but this is often not the best long-term approach. We want to provide your company with solutions that don’t become obsolete as technology advances and your business evolves. Therefore, all Triple Helix solutions are customizable, and each project includes an assessment to insure the problem being addressed is fully defined up front.
Every company and every situation is different and should be treated as such. We start with understanding a company’s business challenges and then determine the appropriate technology to help address them. This business-first mentality keeps us open-minded and impartial to technology tools or vendors.
Your current software may work well for some tasks, but be a bad fit for others. Companies usually apply layers of Band-Aids to patch holes when this occurs, or even consider costly replacement projects. There’s often a better, more affordable way to fix things.
Our independent assessment can reveal ways to close or eliminate key gaps, allowing you to stay with your current business applications and get much more value out of them — at a fraction of the cost of buying and implementing new software.
