Data analytics & marketing science

We collect and interpret data to empower senior executives and front-line staff to achieve better outcomes.

Our Data Science team conduct big data analytics, data integration, mathematical modelling, machine learning and data-driven strategy consulting. We employ our client’s own data, primary research, open source data and we have proprietary agreements with third party data providers to get a full picture of your customers.

Through analyses of these data we advise corporations and government on how to improve performance through a better understanding of their customers and stakeholders.

Marketing Science is slightly different from Data Science in that the data we analyse is typically primary research data. But we also have experience working with client databases, raw transactional data, web clickstream data or any combination of these. Our goal is to turn data, through the use of advanced statistical or mathematical modelling, into stories/insights that answer specific client questions to help drive growth.

Our Marketing Science team love dealing with numbers, the feeling at the start of a project when anything is possible but all you have to start with is a whole bunch of 0’s and 1’s or 1-10 scales. We take those big, sometimes messy, data and transform them into any of a number of things – a pricing strategy, a customer segmentation, market share or volumes from a new product launch, information to help optimise the ROI of your media spend or what to focus on to improve brand equity or customer satisfaction.

The Database of Babel – Thought leadership
Jorge Luis Borges wrote of the Library of Babel; an infinite span of hexagonal rooms lined on every side with books, containing within them every possible ordering of symbols in the Latin alphabet. Within this library lies everything that is known, can be known, that cannot be known and is yet true, that once was known and is now forgotten and that will someday be known but is at present not.
