Our team of engineers, data scientists, statisticians, and programmers bring deep expertise across various industries to provide our clients with unique solutions and services that transform data into insightful discoveries in engineering, science, and research.

Our Approach

We are dedicated to advancing the productivity, performance and operational improvement of the engineering, science, and research initiatives of our clients’ organizations. We collaborate with our clients on understanding their most pressing business challenges and help them embark on new analytics initiatives to foster an organizational culture of collective intelligence, higher productivity and performance, and strong governance. We investigate their unique business needs and recommend strategic roadmaps for advanced analytics. We also help them put together a solid business case to be promoted to their senior management for current and future analytics projects.

Project needs assessment

Gain understanding of client’s burden of business challenges. Conduct a thorough investigation of data-ingestion processes (sources, formats, equipment, platforms, and technologies) currently being used to determine scope of data and project requirements.

Proof of concept

Requirements analysis is critical to the success or failure of a Proof of Concept (POC). A POC captures statistically valid, representative data from users in three stages: Data preparation, Modeling & Evaluation.

Quality assurance testing and production

Quality assurance includes fine tuning critical process parameters and critical quality attributes, implementation and deployment as well as performance validation and evaluation

Our Team

We are a team of highly skilled professionals committed to the advancement of problem solving, error prevention, and knowledge discovery through predictive analytics to help our clients work and innovate more productively.

Our team has a deep and diverse range of skills, and that, combined with a shared vision, makes us really good at delivering results.

We encourage and reward independent thinking, innovative solutions and complete accountability. Our team is our most valued asset and each of them inspires client confidence.
