The dedicated team of researchers and analysts at Dolcera transforms data into the Advantage of Knowledge for your company. Data becomes knowledge through the application of Dolcera's optimization process as follows

Bunsiness Research Services - Process

Step 1: Gather relevant data. Using primary and secondary research techniques, we assemble both structured and unstructured (tacit) data and information. We have access to a wide array of leading secondary data sources and also to a pool of well-regarded industry, academic, and functional experts. For Web-based research, our proprietary software tools and protocols efficiently and effectively collect the most relevant data. For primary research, we utilize comprehensive survey and data collection methodologies. Finally, we apply multiple filters to arrive at data that is relevant, consistent, and reliable. All data is explicitly sourced using the Chicago-Style Citation Guidelines.

Step 2: Deduce non-explicit data points. Data and information are not always available via primary and secondary research. In cases where there are gaps in the data, we employ assumptive methodologies such as devising intelligent proxies and statistical techniques. Assumptions are always clearly stated for our clients.

Step 3: Structure relevant choices. Once all data has been gathered and filtered, we use advanced analytical techniques to structure and analyze data for patterns, trends, and outliers. Using our proprietary multidimensional databases, we can intelligently observe structured data sets in comparative and cross-relational formats.

Step 4: Simulate the alternatives. Leveraging our significant modeling expertise, we input structured data into customized predictive models. The models are constructed to serve as point-and-click tools for our clients to simulate scenario-based business case outcomes. Simulated outcomes are driven by leading indicators such as changes in industry/sector dynamics, shifts in innovation and business model cycles, changes in operating paradigms, movements of macroeconomic drivers, etc.

Step 5: Drive insights. Our aim is to provide our clients with continuous, complete, and error-free knowledge and insight that support rapid, effective decision making. Combining outputs from steps 1–4 with our creative frameworks and third-party objectivity, Dolcera drives the insights our clients rely upon to stay ahead of the curve in a knowledge-intensive business environment. Because our information is so thoroughly synthesized and analyzed, clients rarely require additional processing or even formatting. That's what we reckon as the Advantage of Knowledge.
