BKD Makes Big Data and Analytics a Firmwide Practice Unit

Springfield, Mo.-based BKD, an IPA 100 firm, is making big data and analytics a new national practice unit called BKD Analytics effective June 1, elevating the group from its current status as a team within the firm’s forensics and valuation services division.

While continuing to work closely on fraud investigations under the guidance of Mark Solomon as interim practice unit leader, BKD Analytics will now also consult with various industry leaders to create new data products and bring those products to market.

“We recognize that pockets of data analytics expertise have developed at the local office level over the years, and we’re excited to merge those talented resources with our BKD Analytics team to create an even stronger and deeper pool of data analytics leaders,” says CEO Ted Dickman. “We plan to leverage the talents of these new team members across the firm to bring new and existing products to clients firmwide.”
