About

We are a Sydney-based company that specialises in insights, analytics, statistical models and visualisations for a wide range of local and international clients.
We build software frameworks and analysis pipelines for organisations such as the International Cerebral Palsy Genetics Consortium (ICPGC) and Iggy Get Out. These hold, analyse and distil knowledge out of high dimensional biomedical data sets.
Other work we do involves leveraging our team’s analytics capabilities, whether it’s data processing, building a snappy dashboard or using state of the art machine learning and AI techniques — we love it all. People we’ve worked for or continue to develop for include White Box Analytics, Greater Data, Allwright Analytics and RXP.
We make data speak your language. Since your main customers are in your data, we use the best tools so you can get the best out of your data.

Work

We are currently building a scalable global platform for researchers from the ICPGC that aims to break down the barriers hindering collaboration to unite research on a global scale. The researchers needed a singular point of access for data storage (genomic, medical imaging, etc.), complex analysis, data visualisation and investigation.
We are assisting Iggy Get Out with their bioinformatics software development and analysis which in turn facilitates the flexibility and speed that is required. Iggy Get Out is a restless pirate organisation that is trying to find inroads into neurodegenerative disease, specifically Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
