What is Data Science?

Data Science is the combined expertise of a software engineer, mathematician and a business expert. The mass explosion of data in recent years have necessitated the need for data specialists that can work with and make sense of big data. And so the profession of Data Science was born. Data Science to us is more than just crunching the numbers. Crushing the numbers and finding the right algorithms to fit the data DNA is one element of Data Science. Understanding and interpreting the data is even more important. In order to make the correct interpretation of the data, one must start with addressing a very specific business problem. If the questions are vague, the answers will be vague. If the questions are very specific, the answers will be very specific.

Why Data Science?

Strategic Alignment

Data Science is the perfect conduit for strategic alignment. Strategic alignment is achieved when systems, people and processes work together to achieve the same goal.


Data Science is the only field of expertise not limited to a specific subject matter like sales, finance, logistics or operations. Data Science works in all environments and because it is cross-functional it aligns the business specific objectives with departmental execution.

Working Together

Data Science enables your sales, operations and finance teams to work together instead of working against each other. Sales just want to sell your products. Finance is concerned with keeping costs under control and Operations need to produce the goods.

Embedding Data Science in your business will allow

Sales to sell profitable products to the right clients at the right time. Operations to produce to demand. The right products, at the right time, at the right cost. Finance to achieve targets and budgets and keeping costs under control. Logistics to achieve high service delivery to clients, delivering the right products at the right time. Fleet to achieve low cost of operations, with high availability and productivity. Supply Chain to achieve maximum throughput, high velocity of inventory with the shortest cash conversion cycle, satisfying demand.

Analysing the problem

At Autolytix Data Science we spend as much effort on analysing the problem (data analytics) as on interpreting the outcome (interpretive analytics). Interpreting and understanding the outcome and how it translates into actions is what we call “Insight”.

Converting Data Driven Insight

At Autolytix Data Science we constantly look for new innovative ways to convert data driven insight into strategic initiatives. This is where the rubber hits the road, because turning your data into meaningful actions is the ultimate end game.

What sets us apart

This is what sets Autolytix Data Science apart from the crowd, is our ability to turn data into actions, but very specifically to positively impact the client’s bottom line.
