Santa’s Stats

Our most famous client, Santa Claus, has asked us to make use of the stats his IT elves have been collecting and we have turned them into a data visualization for his strategic planning purposes.

Employing our in-house built Dancing Data software, we have animated the data set that includes: toy requests (y-axis), quantity of toy production (x-axis),  dollar value of toys (size of bubble), by type of toy (category displayed in Legend), over the past five years.

Santa was surprised by the toy demand increase since 2012 and now knows he needs to hire 10% more elves to keep up for next year!

If you wish to know more about your company, our research, analytics and data visualizations can help.  Please contact us.

A Year In Review

2018 has been another great year working with our talented team on several exciting projects.

A few photos (from top left to right clockwise): photoshoot for website update in April; 2018 Budget Update Insights event at University of Ottawa’s Telfer School of Management in March; our Tech Team at OCE Discovery in May; our 2018 Canada’s R&D and Innovation Ecosystem Map; Christmas party this December at Peter Devine’s.

Ho Ho Ho! We’ve got a lot on the go!

Global Advantage has been wrapping up projects and sending out new exciting proposals.  Our Tech Team has been pushing forward with our three software development projects.  Our administration team has been working on submissions to remain a pre-approved vendor to the Canadian Government under Task and Solution Professional Services (TSPS) approved for Tier 1 and Tier 2, for both Supply Arrangement and Standing Offer.  In short, our office has the atmosphere of Santa’s North Pole workshop!
