What we do


A5 Consulting

A5 Consulting is a financial analysis and predictive modeling firm focused on all IT infrastructure industries including cloud computing & storage, SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, Hadoop clusters, SDS, SDN, NFV, media delivery, video workflow, instrumentation & industrial automation and EDA workflow, and many new disruptive technologies.


A5's objective is to transparently value our client's projects, products, technologies and service offerings so the customer can make educated business decisions that maximize their firm's value in either a microeconomic situation or in a macroeconomic environment.


Competitive Advantage through Superior Financial Modeling


A5 Consulting applies financial modeling and predictive modeling techniques to improve product or service presentation to customers, partners and vendors.  These models provide competitive advantages by clarifying the top line and bottom line financial metrics that prove to be exceptionally valuable to the upper management and C-level executives who have the ultimate power to approve or nix technology projects.


A5 will not only be your business partner, but will become a trusted business partner to your customer.  During the data gathering process, A5 Consulting will work directly with your customer facing team to meet with and interview your customer, if appropriate.  The financial models are not black boxes.  The financial models are transparent, living sales tools that receive updates as new information is encountered.  Your customer will have a vested interest in these tools and will be able to leverage the results for their benefit (and your benefit).


Often, comparative financial analysis across multiple vendors becomes the crux differentiator determining which solution is chosen to to become part of the customer's technology landscape.  It has been our experience that the best technology does not always win the deal.  The customer may provide other reasons to go a different direction.  A well documented, crystal clear financial model used in conjunction with game changing product or service attributes can tip the scales in your favor when presented to upper management. Simple ROI metrics are severely lacking in definition and scope when defining the true value of an offering.



With extensive experience in financial analysis and many disciplines within the technology infrastructure industry, A5 Consulting can be considered a 'gun for hire' if your firm needs to outsource financial project valuation, market analysis, or competitive price modeling.  Please contact us to find out how A5 can help quantify the value proposition that your offering provides and get an advantage over your competition.

Cloud DVR is a network-based solution that reduces the complexity, cost and integration issues associated with the delivery of time-shifted TV services to connected devices and TVs.

NDVR is a consumer service where real-time broadcast television is captured in the network on a server allowing the end user to access the recorded programs at will, rather than being tied to the broadcast schedule.

In finance, the capital asset pricing model (CAPM) is used to determine a theoretically appropriate required rate of return of an asset, if that asset is to be added to an already well-diversified portfolio, given that asset's non-diversifiable risk.

Mathematically oriented quantitative analysts tend to have more of a reliance on numerical analysis, and less of a reliance on statistics and econometrics.

The statistics and quantitative modeling major is designed to develop quantitative thinking skills that are invaluable in business.

Anticipated value for a given investment. In statistics and probability analysis, expected value is calculated by multiplying each of the possible outcomes by the likelihood that each outcome will occur, and summing all of those values. By calculating expected values, investors can choose the scenario that is most likely to give them their desired outcome.

One of the toughest decisions for a startup is how to price their product or service.
