You’re a business manager, BI manager, or IT stakeholder, and you’re looking for a professional Business Intelligence consultant or international BI consultant. One that listens closely and is professional, involved, passionate, and reliable. One who continuously keeps developing and is an expert in their field, whether it’s the hard, technical side, or the softer culture, change, and behavioral side. Someone you’ll always be able to count on for up-to-date, relevant, holistic, and independent advice. Passionned Group has such a (freelance) BI consultant.

Excellent track record in Business Intelligence consultancy

Our Business Intelligence consultants are battle-scarred experts with years of experience in independently advising on Business Intelligence & Analytics issues. On top of that, they’re certified in the Intelligent Organization framework. Not only do you get bang for your buck, but you also get access to our BI expertise center. Most importantly, we guarantee that our methods and pragmatic approach will lead to BI success.

Prevent BI trauma

Organizations that hire a BI specialist or a Business Intelligence consultant at another company that doesn’t specialize in BI often end up sorely disappointed. They often lack deep insight, a holistic perspective, and a practical approach. Consultants from such organizations often don’t maximize the returns on Business Intelligence. In some cases, these BI tracks fail hopelessly, and the organizations end up with a BI trauma. You can avoid that by calling on genuine professionals. Our interim analytics consultants have at least fifteen years of experience in the field. Passionned Group also offers a Business Intelligence training course that will make you a pro in analytics.

The best interim analytics consultants are 100% independent

If you hire one of our interim analytics consultants, you can be assured that they advise and operate independently, in line with the assignment. We aren’t bound to BI vendors in any way, unlike many other organizations on the market. Our Business Intelligence consultants are 100% independent, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not experts on various BI tools. They also have a lot of practical knowledge about the tooling and architecture. You’ll benefit from this because achieving BI success in your organization is our only interest. We know better than anyone how we can transform your data into process improvements, better margins, and more satisfied customers and BI users.

Freelance analytics consultant: from BI to AI

Artificial Intelligence (definition) is sometimes seen as the successor to Business Intelligence. This is partly correct because machine learning and data mining are more advanced forms of BI. On the other hand, you can also argue that AI simply falls within the domain of the Business Intelligence consultant. That’s why Passionned Group’s freelance analytics consultants are all-rounders who can help you with the foundation (BI) as well as with more advanced forms of business analytics, such as AI, neural networks, big data, and predictive modeling.

Hiring a data specialist or freelance BI consultant

Our interim specialists can cover a wide range of roles, from independent Business Intelligence advisers or Business consultant BI to real “techies” like data scientists, data analysts, or Tableau specialists. We’d love to help you with an experienced BI data consultant, a business intelligence consultant who specializes in GDPR, or intelligence consultants who can help you put together a business case. Some of the consultants we have to offer:

  • Freelance BI consultants
  • Freelance analytics consultants
  • Experienced interim analytics consultants
  • Practical freelance business intelligence consultants

Also consider, for example, an independent Business Analytics consultant who can help you make a careful tool selection, or help you choose a new BI platform. Or a business analytics consultant, or a certified Microsoft BI consultant who can design a complete Microsoft stack.
