What is predictive analytics / machine learning?

Once data reaches a certain level of complexity or size it is very difficult to analyse manually. Machine learning and predictive analytics uses computer algorithms to analyse this data.

What if I don’t have good data?

Predictive analytics requires good data, but even if you don’t have good data today it shouldn’t stop you from trying to gather it for the future.

PicNet can help you modify your existing systems to start recording good data today.

What if I don’t have big data?

You can gain enormous insights from your small data if it’s good quality. In fact, the buzzword ‘big data’ is so prevalent because prior to the use of predictive analytics, there was no point to having large quantities of data; it just wasn’t possible for humans to process it efficiently.

Why PicNet?

PicNet’s experience in data systems development spans more than 10 years. Our predictive analytics team is led by the Kaggle master Guido Tapia, a world-class machine learning practitioner with more than 20 years of development and artificial intelligence experience. Guido has built a small team of highly passionate and competent data scientists who are always looking for the next big challenge.

The PicNet difference

Our people

Our highly skilled consultants differentiate us from competitors. We only hire professionals with extensive industry experience and a proven track record, which positions us well to meet the needs of each project. Over the years, we have built a large network of consultants and contacts, which allows us to pull together first-class teams tailored to each assignment.

The project initiation process

When we consider any new project, we make sure at the outset that we fully understand our customer’s short-term and long-term needs. Senior consultants review information we gather and use it to configure the optimum solution.

The PicNet model

Our unique IT management model – based on people, information and collaboration – allows us to deliver fast, quality work that is customised and flexible, and will accommodate your business needs.

Our methodology

We have a tried and tested formula to drive each step of the project and remain focused on the end result. Most importantly – we achieve results.

For many projects, the planning phase can seem orderly and straightforward, however when it comes to execution, events seldom go to plan. This is usually because not enough thought has been given to establishing quality, communications, controls and risk management strategies during the project start-up. At PicNet, our project management style tightly controls the scope of the work – it is pragmatic, while staying focused on the end product.

PicNet uses global best practice methodology and frameworks such as PRINCE2, ITIL and PicNet’s own Business Continuity Methodology and technologies (Risk Shield®). Our consulting services are tailored to add value to organisations and to minimise the risk of managing your IT.
