Analytics focused by strategy driven by analytics.

Hassard Fay helps small- and medium-sized businesses exploit the capabilities unlocked by cloud-based analytics, machine learning, and decision-focused data visualization to forecast demand more accurately, optimize their supply chains, win customers, and drive high-return growth.

And in doing so, to compete successfully with their much bigger rivals.

Because operating in today's economy without analytics is like driving through a storm with your eyes closed



A good data strategy (that is, one driven by a good business strategy) will clarify the path forward, ensuring that investments and efforts are applied to capabilities that will create the most business value—and not to shiny objects that merely reflect the latest hype cycle. 



Delivering data flows, transformations, and analytics/AI for use cases like cyber-risk score aggregation, time-series forecasting, and diagnostic and predictive modeling.



If your customers and your teams aren't already demanding continual and direct access to the data that matters to them, they will be soon. I build data flows and apps, visualizations and dashboards to meet these demands—whether in Salesforce & CRM Analytics, analytics platforms like KNIME, BI tools like Looker or Tableau, or using customizable, code-driven frameworks like Streamlit or D3.

Ian Mason, lead consultant

A quick introduction. I'm a technology strategist, a data analytics and AI/ML consultant, and a data visualization designer/developer who has spent two and a half decades advising senior executives on corporate strategy, designing and delivering complex technology services, and counseling boards of directors. I've worked as a technical architect for Accenture (where I implemented early AI-based applications to improve network operations analytics and root cause analysis), a strategy consultant for SECOR Group, and a board advisor for Hugessen Consulting.

In addition to my technology work, I'm a documentary-style film maker and graphic designer, which means I bring a creative and story-oriented eye to the design of my clients' dashboards and visualizations.
