DATA IS AN ASSET.
Data & advanced analytics for companies & investors seeking economic returns.
WHAT IS ITS VALUE?
BE VALUE DRIVEN.
NOT DATA DRIVEN.
Our goal is to expand the way investors & management teams value data assets
We provide data validation, valuation, and value creation, resulting in:
better investment decisions
true insights & trend analysis
identification of breakout opportunities
We help businesses identify, extract & monetise the consumer, product, & operational insights buried in their data.
First-step insights into your data's value
Rapid business problem and use case identification for data monetisation
Inform your data strategy or vendor due diligence
Understand data's true value & risks: strategic & operational
Determine data's future potential
Inform & gain confidence in pricing
Design data initiatives (strategic, tactical & operational) to solve business problems & reinforce the business strategy
Build the investment case and actionable roadmap to realise the value of data
The value of data isn't an accounting exercise; it's an economic exercise.
As a principle, we believe that data - as an ecosystem - represents intrinsic value and competitive advantage. But data is rarely validated or valued with the same rigour as other key commercial assets.
We aim to change this.
DATA DUE DILIGENCE
For investors seeking the true value & potential of data assets
Increasingly, Information Memoranda make sweeping statements such as: 'proprietary AI-backed decision making' or 'advanced automation'.
Yet few investors have the in-house expertise to deeply interrogate the data ecosystems, datasets, and algorithms of target companies to determine reality and inform their pricing and value creation strategies.
We provide specialist data due diligence and vendor data due diligence to help investors and M&A advisors deep-dive into data assets and determine:
How effective is the target company at leveraging data and analytics to power its business and operational models?
For companies wishing to realise the incrementally significant gains of maturing their data approach, processes & capabilities
Companies are amassing vast amounts of data - everyday. But very few treat their data as a strategic asset.
Working with senior leaders, we craft data strategies that:
target business problems to align with the overall business objectives and strategy,
break down what is needed to solve the problem with data and analytics, and
design a roadmap for delivery, including the resourcing and investment required for success
DATA DELIVERY & PMO
For executives wanting to take the next step in digitalisation & monetising their data
Having a data strategy is the first step towards realising your data's value. Delivering the strategy is where the rubber hits the road!
With a tiered, Data Strategy as a Service approach ('DSaaS'), we partner our clients to deliver their data strategies with:
meticulous project management
rapid problem solving
capacity building & skills transfer
innovative, scalable solutions

What the data experts say
In December 2021, the 'Dean of Big Data' - Bill Schmarzo, kindly wrote the Foreword for our inaugural Year in Review.
This is what he had to say.
"In the same way that oil was the fuel that drove economic growth in the 20th century, data will be the catalyst for economic growth in the 21st century.
But data is unlike any asset that we have ever seen. Data never depletes, never wears out and the same data set can be used across an unlimited number of use cases to derive and drive new sources of quantifiable customer, product, and operational value...at zero marginal cost".

(SNR ASSOCIATE/JNR PARTNER/PARTNER)
You are likely a Head of Data & Analytics, or Chief Data Officer, with 5+ years’ experience crafting, developing, and deploying data solutions – a true practitioner.
In this vein, we expect you to have failed. And to have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly of data science – and to have created a few monsters yourself! After all, data science is a craft. But, you’ve learnt by experience. Honing your skills. Creating efficiencies. Collaborating and learning from others. All with a view to striking a balance between what is practical today, versus, what might be needed tomorrow.
You will use these years of experience to deliver commercial solutions, and practical insights that enable our clients to unlock the economic value of data in the short and medium term. This will be achieved through your ability to engage and hold senior-level conversations, write compelling reports, and craft recommendations – all of which are underpinned with best practice, well-constructed investment plans, and years of pattern recognition.
