This is when they opened accounting offices in New York, and have pioneered the growth of the accounting profession throughout the world.

While an accounting and financial advisory services at heard, Deloitte stayed on top of this emerging trend by setting up its analytics branch Deloitte Analytics.

Through this arm, Deloitte helps organizations with storing, analyzing, and protecting their data. Deloitte also provides Big Data services like Consulting and Education Services. Its products like Isilon, ECS, Boomi, and PowerEdge for Hadoop help organizations make more sense of their Big Data.

Many might wonder about this interesting name on our list.

Their motto is: Data today, sales tomorrow. They believe in leveraging technology and insights and looking at how customers shop today to redefine commerce in the future. Walmart claims to study #bigdata to determine what customers need most before they know themselves.

Most of their Analytics works is done in @WalmartLabs India, based in Bengaluru. Their focus is on building platforms and services on the latest technology stack to support e-commerce, as well as business worldwide.

They build compelling products that are scalable, extensible, and yet meet the demanding stringent performance criteria. Their global products include Inventory Management, SamsClub, Returns and Reverse Logistics, Global Supply Chain Tools, and Global Integrated Fulfillment.

Vodafone Analytics

You’ll always find Vodafone at the forefront of what’s new, whether it’s the very first international roaming call made using their network back in 1991, to the new standards they’ve set in the field of mobile internet access with Vodafone Live! in 2002, to enabling the emerging marketers to move money around using mobile devices – even when they don’t have a bank account. Which is why it comes as no surprises that it ranks fifth by revenue and second in the number of connections among all mobile operator groups globally.

Vodafone uses big data for churn prevention (to retain its 400m customers, and ensure they get the best delivery service possible), convergence enablement (Vodafone covers over 28m households and thousands of businesses – and this is just in Europe), and fraud management to protect revenue and reinvest it for their customers.

Vodafone analytics uses two categories of data broadly: anonymised aggregated location information (which helps them and third-party partners in understanding movement patterns along transport routes and in areas where people congregate) and anonymised demographic data (such as age range of customers, gender, and the type of handsets they use).

They recently set up a big data process analytics team within source-to-pay to focus on business excellence and create the “perfect purchase order”. Their main goal was to quickly determine where inefficiencies and deviations are driving up costs or delivery times.

IBM Analytics

IBM has been leading in terms of technology and innovation since its inception: it deserves the credit for inventing the ATM, the PC, the floppy disk, the hard disk drive, the magnetic stripe card, the relational database, the SQL programming language, the UPC barcode, and dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) – a bragging list anyone would be proud to call their own!

Its analytics branch, IBM Analytics, combines data, analytics, and artificial intelligence to help organizations uncover insights that improve business processes and ideas. It addresses the problems that businesses face while dealing with large datasets.

For example, this army of consultants helped create a new app for a big retailer that predicted which products to stock based on information ranging from tweets to the weather; helped a healthcare organization come up with personalized treatment recommendations for cancer patients; and enabled a school to deliver personalized lesson plans for its students.

IBM says it also plans to train another 25,000 consultants on how to create custom “cognitive computing” apps for businesses this fall.

Their products suite includes IBM Cognos Controller, IBM Db2 on Cloud, IBM Content Foundation, IBM BigIntegrate, IBM Planning Analytics, Cognos Controller, IBM Decision Optimization on cloud, and many more.
