Virtual advisors

Our research led us to develop a design and development methodology of virtual advisors. The virtual advisors are highly specialized programs, created and used to react to the user’s behaviors in a way to recommend them decisions to make and/or actions to take. Thanks to that methodology, we can help you automate your business process or provide you with recommendation software allowing to guide the users in maintenance tasks or during sports trainings.

BI and Data Mining

Your company gathers data from various sources (data base, ERP, CRM, documents, emails) and you'd like to analyze those data to derive added value from it. Brainstorm Consulting can carry you in this process. We have a broad expertise in data modeling, business intelligence and data mining.

The goal is to gain insight into the problems of our customers, and understand if reasonable solutions exist to deal with those problems

We start by analyzing the best solution to implement, taking into account the customer's requirements

Based on our analysis, we establish a proposal for solution

At this point, we describe to the customer the technologies that will be used, and we set up a budget and a schedule

Once the specification is validated by the customer, we start the development

We involve our customers in the development process; we organize meetings during which the progress of the implementation is discussed, we show intermediate states of the solutions, we communicate pro-actively with stakeholders

We deploy an environment that let customers track the evolution of the project

The customer is free to issue any comment on the solution during the implementation

Based on our understanding of business requirements et following information collected from various stakeholders, we create a specification document

This specification intends to be as complete as possible in order to clarify the expected functionalities of the future solution

The document is intended for both customers and our technical teams. Using the same specification document, we reduce the risks of misinterpretation

We create a first prototype of the solution, as a way to confirm the satisfaction of business requirements and let customers evaluate its functionalities

To ensure customer satisfaction, we deliver solutions that correspond to what has been defined with the customer

The customer has the opportunity to test the solution in real conditions before the final release

We remain present after the release to ensure that the solution is running well

We can intervene in the training of end users to help them make the best possible use of the newly designed solution
