John Hossack, President and Co-founder of Cardinal Path

What does innovation mean to your company?

Innovation is at the heart of what we do at Cardinal Path and essential to our growth. Part of our purpose is to know, to share, and to create competitive advantage. You cannot be on the leading edge of this industry without innovation.

Is there a technology, trend, or idea that’s driving your company forward?

Client-side, more and more organizations are awakening to the fact that they must become data-driven organizations in order to be competitive. This realization really moves our company forward because that’s exactly what we’re doing for people—empowering them to make business decisions based on what their data says.

Where do you hope this innovation will lead you in the next five years?

The next five years will see us doing more and more data science and predictive-analytics work. Once organizations have that critical data layer working for them and they can trust the data coming in, we’ll start to focus squarely on the fun stuff—transforming data into revenue.

How has the notion of innovation changed in the past decade?

Ten years ago, the limiting factors were the costs of infrastructure. But with ability to access storage in the cloud, organizations can do a lot more and be more aggressive about trying new things. With data to guide us, we are free to get out in front of trends as they are happening. So being innovative doesn’t have to be as risky as it was once.

How do you cultivate innovation within your workforce?

Once a year, we have an innovation event where different offices will submit standout ideas based on the work we’re doing for clients, with an aim to replicate that success in other areas. We also have weekly Friday meetings across the company to talk about the latest and most exciting work that we’re doing. We are sharing analytics applications with our teams that didn’t exist just months earlier.
