How we have helped clients

A startup needed to scale up their data science and engineering capabilities in short order. They used DSAT 2.5 for our deep financial industry expertise and advanced data engineering skills. We provided them with the right mix of technical and domain knowledge to rapidly accelerate their client service.

A global investment bank uses DSAT 2.5 to modernize tagging, tracking and reporting for their research portal. Also, we are creating a test and learn framework to enable more efficient experimentation and comprehensive feedback.

A retailer wanted to understand the attractiveness of their local markets and how they fared against their competitors. This retailer used DSAT to automate the generation of custom detailed reports, comprised of an (automatic) aggregation and analysis of various public data sets, and develop an interactive application allowing business users to create further customizable charts and reports.
