Documentation and white papers

Being a consultancy, we get to work with a wide range of companies and see first hand the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to analytics and product development. Where we get the oppportunity, we do our best to write up best practice and other (hopefully useful) guides and white papers to share this knowledge and contribute to ongoing debates.

Software resources

As part of our data toolkit, we've built a range of applications and applets. We make these freely available to our clients and the wider world, in the hope that other people can use them to use their data to drive business value.
