Responsibilities

The Business Transformation BI team creates and utilizes tools that direct financial and operational decisions.  This is done by leveraging massive internal and external data and making them accessible to decision makers in a format that is simple, visually pleasing and presented in a way to drive conclusions.  Data includes engineering build progress, market readiness for sale, customer types, competitors, available workforce, and product offers.

 

We do this by leveraging Verizon’s extensive suite of support systems, Excel, R Studio, SQL, Tableau, Alteryx and custom in-house geospatial analysis tools.  There is a heavy emphasis on sound, comprehensive and robust financial analysis that allows Verizon to maximize value on its capital investments in Network Transformation.

 

The team must align assumptions and business case drivers across all of Verizon’s lines of business as well as capital management, finance, marketing, sales, sourcing, IT and legal teams.  This requires strong interpersonal skill and the ability to drive to alignment when working on cross-functional teams.

 

All of this produces a three-dimensional analysis that forecasts financial value of the opportunity, project cost, and all required effort to drive to projects to completion.
