We have the knowledge and expertise to identify, engage and assess the data scientists that are right for your organisation and according to your business goals. 

Our goal is to help our clients become truly ‘insight driven’, to help them fully exploit their data using the convergence of Cloud and Artificial Intelligence to deliver real business value. 


We work with a candidate network handpicked over two decades, who are capable of implementing the Big Data technical solutions they design, whilst providing technical advisory and strategic consultancy to our senior client stakeholders. The Engineers, Architects and Consultants we work with have a focus on data platforms and they cover multiple technologies across various relational databases, NoSQL, Big Data and cloud data platforms, enabling them to marry the most innovative insights solutions with high-quality, industrialised and enterprise-scale Big Data engineering and architecture techniques.  


Whether you need a contract or permanent resource with Hadoop (Cloudera and Hortonworks distributions) or Pentaho experience, other NoSQL databases like Neo4j and Elastic, and streaming technologies like Spark Streaming - We can help! Our strength is providing the people behind the data who can use advanced Big Data analytical techniques against very large, diverse data sets that include structured, semi-structured and unstructured data, from different sources, and in different sizes from terabytes to zettabytes, which are essentially too large or complex to be dealt with using traditional data-processing application software.


We are very confident we can deliver the right candidates at varying levels of seniority to solve all your big data challenges including capturing data, data storage, data analysis, search, sharing, transfer, visualisation, querying, updating, information privacy and data source.
