Reinventing the Analytics Engine Room

“In my 30 years building analytical systems, I have seen first-hand how hard it is to get analytics right.  Analytic programs rest on complex architectures which are dependent on highly skilled engineers, frequently cost millions of dollars, and are not flexible to move at the pace of business.
 
At Aginity, we have made it our mission to reinvent this process.  We are creating tools which an analyst can use throughout their journey – from accessing data, through building analysis, and ultimately delivering results which drive their organizations.”

The Aginity Team

With our headquarters in Silicon Valley and our associates spread across North America and Europe, we have built a culture which fits the moment. Our associates include a broad mixture of experience and background. They hail from many countries and their diversity brings a range of thought which makes us better as a whole. And while our work in an early stage technology company is always evolving, we have established a set of core principles to guide us:

Start With People

A culture build around trust, empowerment and accountability is a foundation for success.

Frame Innovation in Terms of Customer Outcomes

By studying our customers complete experience, we define our work in terms of improved results (Quality), time to deliver (Agility) or a reduction in resources (Cost).  Then we let the solution evolve to best deliver the outcome.

Treat Every Requirement First as a Hypothesis

By treating every requirement as a hypothesis we are naturally forced to think about how to test our ideas.  And that leads us into a discovery process which brings customers into the discussion.

Practice Iteration to Drive Learning

Throughout the life of a product there is tremendous learning to be derived from usage.  So, every release is a learning opportunity.  When you think of it that way, the more you can release the better you can learn.

Work on One Thing at a Time

We are all faced with competing priorities. However, the human brain is most productive when it is focused, and there is a big switching cost to move from task to task. So, it is important to allow team members to focus – to work on one thing, complete it and then move on.

Transparency Creates Trust

Progress on technology projects is often shrouded in mystery.  Yet customers need to understand where we are, and bad news does not age well.  So, transparency is a critical factor in any good technology environment.

Constructive Conflict is Essential

The essence of innovation is conflict between the old way and something new. In any innovation process there are competing ideas. The best ideas come from testing differing ideas to find the answer. And conflict is essential to that process.

If a requirement starts as a hypothesis you are naturally forced to think about how to test your ideas.  And that leads to a discovery process which brings customers into the discussion.
