The bird is a Kingfisher and is an analogy for what we do best – fishing for insights in data!
In short – everyone. We have worked with Fortune 500 companies, as well as upstarts looking to use data analytics to make their big break. We’re just as happy to work with the world’s best known brands as we are local non-profits.
You won’t find their logos or names listed here because we believe that the practice of data analytics should be private, genuine, and trustworthy. We want you to get the credit – let us be your secret weapon! Tell us how we can help.
Visual analytics combines advanced methods of statistical analysis with visual interfaces that help facilitate the understanding of large amounts of data. See Playfair Data’s Visual Analytics Journey to learn more.
Technological advances have made it possible to track and store more data than ever before. This is an exciting opportunity, but humans are not wired to read and interpret data in its raw form. Visual Analytics tools make it possible to identify insights in even the largest data sets – in turn making the data valuable.
While we believe data visualization is the key to unlocking the value of data, it is a small subset of the practice of visual analytics. Playfair Data is an end-to-end visual analytics consulting and training company that can support analytics strategy, data engineering, advanced analytics, user interface design, and more.
We think of building data products like we think of building a house. An architect can dream up any design they want, but the engineer has to do the math and make sure the house doesn’t fall down. We pair visual analytics architects (i.e. “designers”) with visual analytics engineers to bring dashboards to life.
Playfair+ is the training and enablement side of our business while Playfair Data is the parent company. Some of our clients start a partnership as Playfair+ members who want our expert team to complement their in-house expertise, while others start with our consulting services and eventually want to enable their own teams to take over the work using our Playfair+ training resources.
Playfair+ is a premier visual analytics training platform with enablement resources totaling over $1 million in value. Members can get started for as little as $35 per month or $900 for a lifetime. We also offer discounted membership to current students, classes at accredited universities, and academic institutions.
