We evaluate existing capabilities, identify key purposes and needs, and develop business plans to better employ data analytics to progress your organization’s goals. A key specialty is the design of systems that integrate very different data types to produce clear, simple and actionable information.
We manage new or existing big data programs, particularly during their development, initial deployment and at times of change. We have particular experience rolling out big data strategies for startups and small to mid-sized enterprises to unlock new markets and business opportunities.
We design and implement business data systems that integrate complex biological information. Biological data is notoriously challenging, but this is one of our key strengths, with proven capability in the health, genomics and agricultural technology spaces.
We review organizations to identify how they can employ big data to make better executive and governance decisions. We evaluate data systems and information flows, provide access to extensive international networks, and undertake change reviews.
We advise on statistical approaches, identifying how best to integrate statistics and analytics into new or existing data systems, including the deployment of artificial intelligence and machine learning approaches.
We provide advisory support and training to fill knowledge gaps around big data and analytics, especially during planning for new strategic initiatives, and in executive and governance upskilling settings.
