About Us

“Every company in a competitive market is faced with trying to gain business insight from an exploding amount of data. In addition, the pressure to leverage externally available data and effectively combine it with internal data in a timely fashion for decision making is growing. Organizations who develop the core competency of managing data and delivering valuable business analytics, will set themselves apart from their industry peers.

Is your organization trying to make critical decisions today but struggling to acquire, integrate, and verify data in a timely manner? Do you have a strategy and roadmap that gives you a level of confidence you’re on the right track? Maybe it’s a good time to talk with someone that has deep industry experience in addressing these challenges.

Strong Tower Solutions, Inc. (STS) is a firm that specializes in solving data management and business analytics challenges with over 30 years of experience and up-to-date knowledge on industry solutions and technical trends.

So what makes STS different from other firms?

  • We always keep the business problem in focus. Many analytics consulting firms today are technology focused and often lead with technology. We want you to know and understand the business value of our solution.
  • We focus on a limited number of industries. This helps to ensure we come to the table with insight on day one about your business challenges.
  • We believe Technology is an enabler not an end to itself. When we make a technical recommendation, we ask ourselves does this make business sense for our client. We ask ourselves, if this were our business would we do this?
  • We also educate our clients throughout the engagement process. Developing a competency or being able to repeat a successful project on your own requires that we transfer knowledge.

Finally, we apply Strong and proven Information Management (IM) principles when developing a customized solution for our clients. These principles are necessary to ensure your organization is able to deliver sustainable and consistent business analytics overtime.”
