Trivium BI Philosophy
In today’s culture, we are surrounded by data. In a relatively short time period, we have transitioned from a society with limited data availability to one with an abundance of data, literally at the tips of our fingers. What has not changed is the need to translate data into meaningful information. Our seminal challenge today, given the abundance of data everywhere, is identifying and unearthing the most important data in order to answer key questions. At the foundational level, Trivium BI works with our partners to bring key data points to the forefront, informing understanding and the ability to gain key insights from their data. With the ability to quickly leverage strategic data, our partners can apply data-informed insights to their most critical questions and to develop a data culture nested in organizational learning. Simply stated, Trivium BI makes the complex simple and practical.
Trivium BI partners with institutions to build an infrastructure and road map for contextualized data-driven decision making. Simply stated, we work with institutions to help them understand their data and how to best use those data to drive informed decision making.
To this end, Trivium BI guides institutions to experience the “Trivium Moment,” the moment when organizations gain the ability to clearly see their data, understand inherent data patterns, and use these data findings to facilitate organizational learning and improvement.
Institutions experience the “Trivium Moment” in a rapid three-stage process that mirrors the original educational trivium of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. In the grammar stage, Trivium BI works with institutions to highlight and make visible the mechanics of its data. This includes examining existing data structures and defining key metrics for the institution.
The logic stage refers to the "mechanics" of thought and of analysis, the process of identifying appropriate data points and trends which can be leveraged to gain improved institutional understanding. Data is clarified and contextualized, allowing institutions to systematically produce factual data that can be trusted.
The rhetoric stage is the application of the information gained from the prior stages. This includes articulation of newly gained insights, as well as reliance on data to inform stakeholders.
With the combination of these three elements, institutions are able to transform knowledge (grammar) into understanding (logic) and facilitate the use of data to drive contextualized decision making (rhetoric).
