Welcome to Third Nature

Third Nature is a consulting and advisory company specializing in analytics and information management and the technology infrastructure required to support them. If your question is related to planning, building or using analytics and data products then you've come to the right place.

Our goal is to help companies take advantage of new information-driven management practices and applications by creating a strategy, designing and building the appropriate systems. We offer advisory, consulting and education services to companies interested in these topics.

We fill the gap between what analyst firms cover and what business and IT management needs. We specialize in analytics and data strategy and planning, and technology architecture. We do hands-on technology analysis, evaluating emerging technologies and products - not the vendor financials and their market positions. This enables us to go beyond providing a vendor short list and allows us to give advice on the right tools and technologies to solve business and IT problems.

If you are looking for more information on any of our services, feel free to
