Our Methodology

Schneider Downs ADAPT applies an agile and proactive approach to each engagement, ensuring client satisfaction. We believe collaboration is most effective in providing a solution that answers your business questions and satisfies your business needs. Each data analytic program requires four key actions: Manage, Discover, Solve, and Visualize.

ADAPT Process Chart

ADAPT Manage

Each day, the world creates quintillion bytes of data. Your organization contributes to the data created each day. Unfortunately, due to software limitations, disaggregated systems and manual processes, you may not have sufficient time or visibility into your data to allow it to work for you in an efficient manner. We can help you become more efficient and effective through integration of data systems, implementation of process automation and identification of process improvement opportunities.

ADAPT Discover

Each project is a collaborative experience between Schneider Downs and your project team. We examine your business plan and collect information from finance, operations, IT and other departments to understand your business challenge and then build a business solution to satisfy your specific needs. This solution includes data discovery, which helps us understand the data that is collected and available to help solve your business problem.

ADAPT Solve

After identifying the business problem through ADAPT and Discover, we will perform various data analytics to provide predictive and prescriptive analysis to deliver business solutions. Allow us to integrate our solutions into your existing processes or outsource your full or partial financial planning and analysis role to Schneider Downs ADAPT.

ADAPT Visualize

Data visualization is the art of utilizing graphs, charts, informational graphics, and geospatial mapping to present complex data. Visualization can be applied on an as needed basis or be incorporated into monthly, quarterly or annual reporting packages. The creation of dashboards to easily identify and display interesting trends, anomalies and outliers can be used and shared in monitoring, projecting and summarizing results.
