IIA’s RAN provides clients with access to the world’s largest analytics-focused Expert Network. It has been designed specifically to support analytics leaders from team managers to CDAOs. With the dedicated support from your IIA Research Professional working with you each step of the way, clients are guided to relevant practitioner-generated written research and curated 1:1 conversations with Experts on those topics that are most important to you right now.

As you and your team tap into the Expert Network to learn how others have wrestled with similar initiatives and then discuss how those tactics work in your context, you’ll be validating your efforts, making for more reliable outcomes.

There are no vendors here. No lifelong consultants. No time wasted. Just the knowledge you need right now, transferred directly from those who have been in your shoes.

Expert Network

Analytics professionals face a broad array of challenges from (a) developing a defensible project prioritization framework to (b) understanding the tactical steps in moving to an AI first strategy to (c) building team skill-sets that meet business demand, and more. They require a flexible resource that meets them where their needs are, when those needs arise.

IIA’s Expert Network is fully available to clients to share years of knowledge and experience across the full spectrum of data and analytics, and includes analytics thought-leaders, practitioners, executives, data scientists, data engineers, and others.

Through your dedicated IIA Research Professional, we will curate and facilitate bespoke 1:1 conversations between you and IIA’s Experts, typically within 48hrs. These are tailored specifically to support and address the projects of greatest importance to you. We will then continue to work alongside you to progress your knowledge as you advance along your work stream, increasing both your speed to an outcome and your skill-set to handle the next project that comes your way.

IIA’s Expert Network is about knowledge delivered just-in-time as your needs arise.
