Value-led, strategic
data leaders

Without exception, all our engagements are anchored in the business and not the technology. Meaning, we are driven and measured by commercial impact and not 'models built'. 


Also, being software and technology agnostic means our advice is based on what we believe is best for you - mitigating technical debt and vendor lock in. 

Data & AI strategy & delivery >>

Best of both

Our team represents a unique blend of data and investment experience. 


We deeply understand the needs of private equity investors, the pressures of private equity ownership, and the challenges and benefits of data science and advanced analytics solutions. This balance enables us to think, act, and communicate as 'owners' rather than consultants.
