We like dealing with data, transforming it, and deriving insights. We know how to create a project focused on deriving profitable insights, and we also know how to create an in-depth research-grade project for delving deep into a problem.
We do things properly. This includes experimental design, validation of results, and reporting. We even ensure that the code is of a high quality. This allows you to be safe in your knowledge that the insights are reliable, and that the code will be readable by others.
Things change, and so do we. We aim to be flexible to changing requirements and timeframes, as we know that no-one ever knows everything up-front. We practice agile development, allowing our projects to be used in an early state, followed by ongoing improvements.
