Our Proven Approach
Discovery & Understanding your organisational needs
Understanding your organisational objectives is vital to drive innovative outcomes that are relevant and meaningful to your environment. This knowledge drives what outputs your business is seeking and adds context to the analytical approach and methodology we will use to deliver intelligent and robust solutions that work for you.
Analysis and Gaining Insight
Gaining insight and context to your challenges, system gaps and recommending improvements will lay the foundation for selecting and defining the most appropriate analytic and pragmatic approach. This allows us to solve these problems within your business environment and context.
The next step after defining the analytical approach and data requirements, is to identify and gather the relevant data resources. This data may exist in a structured, unstructured or semi-structured format within your organisation. As part of this process, gaps in knowledge and systems are typically encountered, at which point the data requirements are revised and additional requirements are sought to close this gap.
Using descriptive statistics and visualisation techniques our team will start to gain insights into the data collected, assess it and prepare it for the next stage of modelling.
Data Preparation and Modelling
During this phase all data is cleaned, collected, combined, sanitised, transformed and prepared for modelling. The data collected will also be restructured and re-engineered to produce variables that enrich and enhance the model. While this can be time and resource intensive, our focus in this phase is to intelligently manage the data resources so that they are integrated correctly, and analytically clean.
With the first version of data, the team will then develop descriptive or predictive models using historical data as a training set . These models are rigorously tested, scrutinised and the data preparation and model specification refined.
Once the model has been evaluated and tested, our team will package this for approval to release. It will then be deployed into the test or production environments for initial evaluation to limit and control the release to minimise impact. If the model needs to be deployed into the operational environment, several groups and technologies may be introduced to evaluate the models efficiency and effectiveness.
Evaluation and Feedback
Mining the results from the deployed model will bring further opportunities for evaluation, reiteration and improvement. The feedback received reports on the model’s performance and its impact upon the environment it is deployed within. The observations and refinement of the model provides an opportunity for improvement and efficiency. This continuous cycle ensures that outcomes are beneficial, relevant and with context to your organisation..
The data, functional and non-functional requirements that are necessary for the project will be elicited and managed over the full analysis and implementation cycle.
This is guided by standards, processes, domain knowledge, data content formats and representations existing within the enterprise.
