Posted in: Pythian Life

This blog was co-authored by Hilary Smith and Sarah Killoran.

In our several years working on the Pythian sales team, Sarah and I have had the opportunity to listen to, and learn from many companies. With the new year upon us, we’ve been chatting about what businesses have told us sets Pythian apart, and why they continue to choose us. Here are five of the reasons that business should consider working with Pythian in 2017.

1. Our Services Grow With Your Business

The way corporations ingest and use data is constantly changing and evolving at an increasing pace. Businesses who want to win need to keep up with this pace, but also work to get ahead of the pack.

Pythian can walk through the whole lifecycle of projects from consulting strategy to implementation to managing operations, and the breadth of our team’s knowledge helps clients feel reassured and secure.

Some of our clients initially engage us to take on basic day-to-day operations within their environments. They quickly learn that we bring much more value to the table than simply keeping the lights on. We excel in the arena of operational excellence, but we are also experts in helping businesses digitally transform. This can take the shape of automation, cloud migration, advanced analytics involving BigData and Data Science. As your business needs change, Pythian services are in place to accelerate those changes. We move quickly and seamlessly to scale with your teams to help you reach your goals as fast as possible.

2. Highest Concentration of Senior Engineering Talent

You hear it all the time: “We only hire the very best!” But really, Pythian actually does. And we can prove it.

We hire and retain the top tech experts with industry-leading knowledge and certifications and we recruit globally to find the best talent, regardless of location. In 2015 alone, we received 12711 resumes and hired 174 new employees. This accounts for the top 1.5 percent who applied for a job at Pythian. These candidates have written books, speak at conferences around the world, and are active in their community user groups. Each individual has a unique skill set and industry experience which only becomes more impressive the longer they work at Pythian. We equip them with cutting-edge technology to make sure they deliver the best results faster to our customers. Professional development and continuous growth incentives allow our IT experts to continue their education, train in the newest technologies and remain at the top of their game. Pythian is driven by outcomes so it’s imperative that our experts are the trusted advisors our clients depend on.

3. Increase Quality of Life for Existing Employees

Almost every company has or has had a tired, over-worked senior data/system engineer whose skill set and breadth of knowledge is critical to their organization. Leveraging our senior resources allows organizations to maintain focus on what really matters; elevating their business engagement to the next level. Priorities differ and often change over time – especially in this day and age where businesses constantly have to keep changing priorities to better compete. Pythian works with that change, whether it involves a custom-built application, automating time-consuming workflows, innovation projects, or daily operations. We work to enhance your teams but also work to enhance your business as a whole. Pythian has the technology that brings together a highly collaborative approach, which allows delivery of the best outcomes faster, and better outcomes than people who are working individually. This takes shape in staff augmenting existing staff or managing operations/projects fully – the choice is yours

4. We Provide Cross-industry Expertise

We work with data-driven organizations. This encompasses a variety of industries – media, advertising, education, retail, healthcare, manufacturing, finance – you name it. We already have deep expertise in your industry: from security compliance for Healthcare and Finance to developing algorithms for SaaS with machine learning to gaining deep customer insights in Retail and Ecommerce, we’ve done it all and have the ability to apply the skill sets used in one industry to others to help them gain a greater competitive edge. Our cross-industry expertise makes it easy for Pythian to understand your business and its unique challenges. Our vast experience is a big factor in helping us provide you with a painless onboarding process and smooth knowledge transfer. This is why we are a trusted advisor to such a diverse clientele.

5. We are in the middle of the digital transformation of our economy.

Customers want what they want, when they want it, which is usually now. We as customers want to shop online, bank online, learn online, mingle online, manage our healthcare needs online, control our home appliances online – the list goes on. In business, we want to leverage SaaS companies to take care of priorities relating to operations, HR, finance etc. With IoT expansion, there will be increased demand for continuous integration. Companies need to adopt new technologies and practices to better compete. We help the most innovative and competitive companies do this and we do it well. We are technology and vendor agnostic – which means that we are unbiased towards the use of different technology tools and vendors to solve different problems. We are unbiased because we have experience working with all of them. Pythian’s experts are recognized globally for their knowledge and expertise with an extensive list of technology tools, platforms, and applications and can help you make the best decisions that align with your business goals.
