What is Pueo?

The company name “Pueo” translates to owl in Hawaiian and is intended to convey company culture – wisdom and guardianship. The pueo is one of the various physical forms assumed by ʻaumākua (ancestor spirits) in Hawaiian culture.  In Hawaiian culture ʻaumākua act as guardians to their families, guide, and protect them – not unlike the important role of management consultants to their clients. Often depicted with graduation caps and famed in the classic children’s story “Winnie the Pooh” the owl is an iconic representation of wisdom and knowledge.  Critical to Pueo Business Solutions is their reliance upon knowledge gained through study, experience, and application.  Amidst numerous applicable abbreviations, the letters P-U-E-O appropriately also help to shape Pueo’s motto – pioneering unique enterprise optimization.

Blended Analytics

Traditional business analysis relies heavily upon subject matter experts to survey stakeholders, analyze responses, generate findings, and implement recommendations. These techniques help to effectively describe an environment and formulate expert-driven recommendations, but are limited to qualitative efforts which sometimes lack defensibility and repeatability.

Representing a departure from the norm, Big Data Analytics is a new hype that is often lauded in the fields of business and technology for its ability to expand the breadth and speed of organizational analytic capacity. However, Big Data is limited to highly structured activities and requires enormous volumes of data to effectively generate insight.

Pueo differentiation lies in Blended Analytics – the integration of advanced analytic tools and human engagement to rapidly derive meaningful insight. It is particularly valuable for organizations who seek to apply limited data, of varying confidence levels, against both structured and unstructured problem sets.

Pueo technologies deliver cost-efficient analytic processing tools, while incorporating precise human involvement to account for the infinitesimal considerations that technology overlooks. Finally, Blended Analytics also serves an incremental role to establish a data foundation and demonstrate utility for informed Big Data Analytics expansion.

About Us

Our Story

One evening after working a long day on ‘Ulupalakua Ranch, my grandfather Edward Ka’iaokamalie did not return home, concerning his wife Eva.  After still not returning the following day, Eva organized a search party of horsemen to look for her dear husband.  After several days, and with no sign of Eddie, the search party concluded that Eddie probably slipped into town and proposed canceling the search.  At that moment, Eva saw a pueo circling in the distance … in broad daylight and out of the ordinary.  Acknowleding her ʻaumākua, she directed the search party to that location. Sure enough, Eddie lay parched, near death, and pinned under his horse who had suffered a broken leg. The pueo remains our family’s ever-vigilant defender.
