About Us

We are in a period of significant change unlike any other in human history. Information is being created at an astonishing rate. In the last two years alone, more than 90% of the world's data has been produced. The main driver is transactional data being produced by companies, financial institutions, and online intermediaries. This includes trillions of bytes of information about customers, suppliers, and operations. As researchers, our job is to analyse this information, discover meaningful insights, and present them in ways that are easy to understand. So our mission is simple - We tell stories with data!
