Data Analysis and Reporting

July 06, 2018

Hello Everyone,

Data is the life-blood of any business.  It can be used to understand employee behavior, customer interactions, market fluctuations, etc., and it can alter the way business decisions are made.  Your business not only needs reliable access to the right types of data, you need that data to be clean, free of duplicates and mistakes, and available for complex analysis.  Astir IT specializes in business intelligence and Big Data and would like to present you with a case study of how we helped a client optimize their data environment.

As always, if you are interested in learning more about how we have addressed a specific topic that you do not see here or on our website (www.astirit.com), please contact us to discuss further.

We had a customer who had a data problem.  Data on customers, employees, competitors, etc. was all collected using different methods and housed in different places.  The customer lacked the expertise and tools necessary to combine, clean, and analyze the data in any meaningful way, and their strategic business decisions were suffering from it.  The customer came to Astir IT needing the creation and maintenance of operational dashboards.

After working closely with the customer, there were four (4) main operational areas that were affected by this lack of actionable data: HR, Finance, Accounts Payable/Receivable, and Operations.  Astir tackled the initial business analysis task, and helped the customer fully flush out the requirements:

  • Human Resources Analytics: Identifying headcount trends, attrition rates, employee demographics, etc. in order to provide insight into trends concerning hiring, terminations, and retention.
  • Finance Analytics: Advanced analytics in the area of bookings-to-revenue lifecycle; giving the client an accurate representation of the ordering process, backlogs, reserves, and billings in order to make inferences and trending projections for upcoming quarters.
  • Invoice Analytics: Invoicing specific analytics designed to flush out information throughout the invoicing lifecycle; such as policy violations, expenditures, supplier lists, etc.
  • Forecasting: Inference based analytics measuring planning, financial forecasting, expense data, cost center levels, account expenses, etc.

 

Once the business intelligence metrics were fully defined, a dashboard solution was implemented that initially combined, standardized, cleansed, and deduped existing data in order to populate a series of multi-tier dashboards.  In order to maintain these dashboards and ensure the customers ongoing ability to make use of the dashboards, a set of proper procedures were designed and implemented to collect and transmit data into a single repository, which was mined by the dashboards.  The customer was presented with a reliable and secure methodology to consistently measure and understand the right data in order to improve their strategic business decisions.

Astir IT's long history of GC filing succcess

July 25, 2016

Hello,

For workers in specialty occupations who are in the United States on H1B visa status, securing a Green Card can be a difficult, lengthy, and expensive process.  Finding a reputable employer to help you navigate this process can add further complication.  This is an important issue within the IT community, as it effects IT consultants at a higher rate than any other industry.  H1B IT consultants not only need to find an employer who is willing to offer them the financial and procedural support they need to get their Green Card, they need that employer to have a successful track record in securing Green Cards for their employees.

Astir is looking for E3 visa candidates

February 09, 2015

The Astir Family of Companies has made use of the H1B visa program since we started in 2001.  Using this program has allowed us to sponsor some of the best and brightest IT talent the market has to offer... which has fueled the award winning IT services and solutions we provide to clients.  The H1B visa program, in combination with other recruitment avenues has been instrumental in growing our business.

In addition to sponsoring H1B visas, Astir has also participated in the lesser known E3 visa program.  The E3 work visa is designed specifically for Australian nationals who wish to enter the U.S. to perform services in a "specialty occupation."  The E3 visa sponsorship program was established in 2005, and has offered Australian citizens wonderful employment opportunities they otherwise may not have been exposed to.

As per the USCIS, the formal definition of a "specialty occupation" is as follows:  "A theoretical and practical application of a body of specialized knowledge; and the attainment of a bachelor's or higher degree in the specific specialty (or its equivalent) as a minimum for entry into the occupation in the United States."  In determining whether an occupation qualifies as a "specialty occupation," follow the definition contained in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) 214 (i)(1) for H-1B nonimmigrants and applicable standards and criteria determined by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS.)  Please see the USCIS page for more information.

Astir has been sponsoring E3 candidates over the past few years, and wishes to expand upon the success we've had with our E3 visa sponsorship program.  We are seeking qualified individuals with a minimum of a Bachelors Degree in a specialized field and are looking for lucrative employment in the U.S.  We have extensive experience providing visa sponsorship for foreign nationals who are looking to begin or further a lucrative career as an IT consultant.  If you are interested, or would like to learn more, please contact us today.

We are also seeking qualified individuals on F1-OPT, CPT, or L2 status looking for H1B sponsorship.
