For more than 25 years, Predictum has empowered engineers and scientists with a renewed approach to their demanding work

About Us

For over 25 years, Predictum has enabled companies to achieve higher levels of productivity, operational improvement and innovation, and realize significant savings in cost, materials, and time. Our team of engineers, data scientists, statisticians, and programmers leverages 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 an understanding of clients’ business challenges that are obstacles to success. Conduct a thorough investigation of data-ingestion processes (sources, formats, equipment, platforms, and technologies) currently being used to determine potential solutions, scope of project requirements, approach to data structuring and transformation, suitable platforms and technologies, and potential training opportunities.

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, and evaluation.

Quality assurance testing and performance validation

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

Our Team

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

Our team has deep expertise and a diverse range of skills, and combined with a shared vision, enables us to deliver outstanding results. Our team is our most valued asset and inspires client confidence all that we do.
