our services

We help clients identify and extract business value from their data assets
data assets

We help clients get business value from their transactional data assets. We use our DATASPRINT™ workshops to help them launch a pilot data initiative or develop a comprehensive roadmap to becoming a data-driven organisation. We also help to develop the data Governance & Management processes to ensure security & privacy and we support the use of tools such as Alteryx to make data accessible to all users.

Intelligent Applications

We use Microsoft Azure .Net and SQL Server, Oracle and Open Source to build cost-effective and intelligent applications, automate everything and improve decision-making. We employ agile and collaborative development approaches to help users engage and deliver what they need. We can often do this for a fixed price and as an outsourced service.

Business Intelligence

We develop data-rich visual business intelligence applications using Microsoft and Open Source technologies for healthcare, education, retail and other sectors. These applications help inform and ease the decision load and drive better outcomes for clients, their users, customers or patients. Tools include Power BI and Tableau.

advanced data analytics

We help clients identify value and develop actionable insights from their data and adopt AI. We free them from low value data engineering and integration tasks and their reliance on scarce and expensive expertise. We provide AWS, Python, Microsoft Share Point, Azure ML, SAS, MySQL, Pentaho and R resources. We have developed our own ‘Analytics-as-a-Service’ (AaaS) platform and implement it in clients in partnership with domain experts, lowering the entry-point for advanced analytics for our client’s.
