9sight is new information insight

Founded in 2008 by Dr. Barry Devlin, 9sight Consulting provides the innovative thinking and thirty years of practical experience required to move your enterprise beyond basic business intelligence to the new world of deep Business Insight and Innovative Action.

Today’s life is lived on the run. Business must keep up or die. With the possibility of tracking of every personal thought and action, event and measure in the physical world, we are awash with data. Business must use it or lose it. Customers want it all and want it now. Business must deliver. The world is undergoing a rapid, tectonic shift from planned and measured progress to predictive decisions and instant gratification. New architectures, technologies and methodologies are needed to support this transition. And a new symbiosis between business and IT, with an added emphasis on human, organizational and management aspects, is mandatory. The new world must emerge even as we keep the old wheels turning.

9sight Consulting can help your business transform itself.
