Management decision analytics
New data-led insights into your business operations and environment
Many of our clients tell us they are data rich but information poor. We can quickly provide you with new insights into your operations and business environment. This allows you to make better informed decisions and mobilise teams to take action that will materially impact your organisation's performance.
Our unique approach to management decision analysis combines the skills of actuaries with data scientists and business consultants. Actuaries are trained to work with real data as found in most organisations: Diverse, incomplete, ambiguous, dirty, large, or small. They are taught how to make sense of data in an uncertain world; they are practical about uncertainty and focused on the business decisions that will change the outcomes for the company.
We team actuaries with experts in decision science who understand your business and both its operational and commercial opportunities. This team can then translate that understanding into focused data analysis that quickly delivers towards your business objectives.
"Our clients tell us that they value our actuaries' practical skills in working with very different types and sources of internal and external data in order to make sense, understand causes, model impact, and deliver recommendations on the business opportunities. This is not blue-sky artificial intelligence; this is pragmatic, outcomes-focused human intelligence from people who have trained for years to do just this."
Allan Engelhardt, Barnett Waddingham
Every company is unique and faces its own challenges, but themes we hear repeatedly from business leaders include:
Our approach addresses these challenges directly. It is proportionate and pragmatic to deliver the support you need right now, to make better operational decisions without large-scale investment or an agenda for changing your strategic IT and BI landscape or technologies. It is based on our core assets: people, values, and experience with data and technology.
We have over 1,300 people and handle large volumes of sensitive data daily in our pensions business. We have the infrastructure to support you integrating, analysing, and visualising your data within a few weeks, and we understand compliance and risk to do so securely.
We have worked with a wide variety of businesses, each with its own challenges, and the projects we have undertaken have been diverse. All have quickly and cost effectively delivered meaningful, previously unknown, insights from which tangible actions have been taken without large infrastructure builds or costs.
