Pretty Good Knowledge is a young company with a long history. We bring together decades of experience in discovering knowledge from data and combine this with the latest techniques and technologies in data science.
We provide advisory services with a cross-functional team of experts in order to co-create specific use cases to educate and benefit your organisation.
The result we work toward is for your team to have ownership of the system, the knowledge of what was implemented and how to improve it moving forward. Our preference is reuse existing technologies in your company where possible.
The solution we will co-create with your organisation is based on three perspectives:
1. Business process: improvements to the operational work flow of your organisation to have confidence and control of the data required to achieve your business goals,
2. Advanced analytics: using various techniques, such as Artificial Intelligence, to optimise and automate the data management processes and enhance your data exploitation capabilities, and
3. Data sources: identifying existing and new data sources in order to discover new and innovative insights to improve your business performance.
