Intellectual Property

Acquire and integrate the Research, Methodologies, Systems, and Data required to carry out your strategic plan.

Needs Assessment

The analytics requirements of an organization are complex, evolve over time, and must be continually reassessed.

How do I understand what the needs are from various perspectives? How do I prioritize these needs? What are the commonalities between the needs of the various groups? What will the needs of my constituents be in 5 or 10 years?

Tetragon Solutions will help you develop a clear understanding of the Investment Analytics needs of your constituents.

Using a thorough process, we will document current and future needs in a manner that will provide the most insight. In cases where multiple parties are involved, we will summarize requirements to achieve a broader understanding of the role of analytics within your organization and provide the best actionable intelligence.

Build vs Buy

Given today's opportunities for horizontal integration, an organization will achieve its goals more effectively and efficiently if it exhaustively evaluates the suitability of internally developing capabilities vs. integrating those of an external entity.

How does an organization create best in breed capabilities? What are the core competencies that can leveraged? What are the benefits of developing Intellectual Property internally vs. obtaining it externally? What is the difference in the cost? What are the risks?

Tetragon Solutions will help you understand the different options for obtaining Intellectual Property given the needs of your constituents.

We will examine the benefits, costs, and risks of using internally and externally developed Intellectual Property by engaging in a dedicated process that relies on detailed discussions and analysis and will lead to more robust decision making.

Procurement

Acquiring external capabilities in a manner that maximizes value requires a substantial effort.

Consolidation

Providing capabilities across an organization can be challenging. The needs of stakeholder groups and those of the organization must be considered in concert to maximize the benefit of combining efforts.

What is the best approach when there are overlapping analytics needs? Are there opportunities to build capabilities through additional collaboration? How can cost be reduced? How will your firm adapt its analytics capabilities in the face of organizational change?

What are the key aspects of the project that will define success? Is the project plan well thought out? What are the key milestones? How should the effort be managed? What are the Quality Assurance needs? How should the key aspect of the implementation be communicated internally and externally?
