THE INTELLIGENT PURSUIT OF INFORMATION

Brainbox Consulting is a Seattle-based firm focused on business intelligence, data warehousing, and SharePoint collaboration solutions. Our offerings include state-of-the-art data visualization, sophisticated data integration and portal services related to content management, workflow and search. Our mission is helping clients access their most actionable information – and share the stories they find there.

We take a different engagement approach. Our firm uses an innovative Virtual Services Model, recognizing that not every organization has the funds or the in-house capabilities to deliver a business intelligence or SharePoint solution. Our proprietary consulting model is to provide a long-term, collaborative team with the right personnel at the right time, and we do this at a price and bandwidth that can be justified for the long haul.

We offer specific expertise in Tableau Software (we’re a very proud Tableau partner), Microsoft BI, SharePoint and a wide array of other database and business intelligence tools. We also provide proprietary onsite Tableau training, a quickstarter 10X10 BI Assessment service and related services that can quickly help business intelligence teams get “unstuck.”

If your company’s pursuit of information isn’t what it could be, then here’s the actionable information you’ve been looking for.

We can now use accurate, timely, and accessible data about at risk students and many other performance indicators, to inform how we evaluate, invest in, and sustain programs. Having access to accurate data through the Academic Data Warehouse has been a game changer for us.

In 1968 my mother founded a Montessori school    in Princeton, New Jersey. Trained by Maria Montessori’s son in Italy, my mother became one of American Montessori’s earliest leaders and brightest stars. The school that she founded remains a thriving institution to this day. That same year my father became the publisher of Forum ’68, a vanguard computer periodical. Several years ago while working on a data warehouse implementation at a school district, I realized, almost as a surprise, that my own company had ended up mirroring the passions to which they had dedicated their lives.

In 1968 you could fit the world’s big data into one of today’s mid-range storage devices but computer scientists and executives were already starting to get overwhelmed by it. So that summer the challenge of managing the explosion of data was the subject of a cover story in my father’s magazine. On the front page they featured a businessman sitting on top of a haystack holding up a needle. “Finding information lost in your growing data,” the caption read. The businessman sitting on top of that haystack is my father.

The data’s gotten bigger. The tools have gotten better. The vision remains the same.
