      Analytics and insights services

      We partner with Victorian public service organisation’s to conduct data projects that use analytics.

      We bring together and analyse data to enhance your understanding about what works, and why. We’ll take you through the full analytics process – including diagnosing your business problem to helping design, develop and deploy solutions. We can work with you to:

      • explore and understand how data can address important business problems
      • co-design analytics solutions to the problems you have identified
      • develop data analytics and statistical models
      • embed new analytics solutions to inform policy making and service design

      We can also help resolve common business problems, including:

      • enabling more effective targeted services
      • identifying which projects would achieve the greatest value first
      • identifying early intervention points
      • optimising or better distributing resources

        How we work

        We work with teams and organisations that demonstrate a clear commitment to change and to become data-driven – starting with the leadership group.

        Our services are offered on a partnership basis and we work closely with our project partners.
