Hello World – The Launch of Black Diamond Advisory

"We don't do projects - we deliver platforms"

Carl Yost

In 2019 we created Black Diamond to be a disrupter in the Digital Finance and Corporate Performance Management (CPM) industry. We believe in a new kind of relationship between technology provider and client and have begun transforming the way financial systems are deployed today – and how they can be used in the future. Our leaders have owned, built and worked for several of the largest finance system consulting firms in the industry. Black Diamond is intentionally different. We want to have joint ownership of the solutions we develop with clients and be engaged with them through their entire transformation journey to ensure that value is derived from their OneStream investment.

We have developed an exclusive strategic partnership with OneStream Software because we firmly believe that it is the future of digital finance and represents an evolutionary technology advancement in CPM. Our platinum partner status signifies our commitment to and recognition of the tremendous depth of expertise in our OneStream solutions capability.

Black Diamond is not trying to simply improve the consulting model of finance transformation and technology implementation –  we are completely rethinking every aspect of how value is derived with financial and operation intelligence.

Here are three key changes we are bringing to our industry:

Platform Thinking

D-CPM or Digital Corporate Performance Management requires a deep understanding and a passion for optimizing the business model of our clients by unlocking the entire platform of the technology that supports it. We don’t do “projects” – we deliver platforms.

Experts Only.

Our firm that has the unique combination of people, passion and product knowledge that truly drives meaningful digital transformation WITH our clients. Black Diamond came from the concept of Experts Only and that will always drive our identity and our culture.

Subscription Service

We strive to offer the same value proposition that is fueling the expansion of cloud-based SaaS solutions. We want to align with our clients over a time horizon that mirrors their SaaS investment and ensure optimal base solution delivery and continued value enhancement and return on investment.

I am so proud of every single person at Black Diamond and their entrepreneurial choice to plant their flag and lead the industry to a totally new place of excellence. Let the journey begin…
