At Otzma Analytics, we believe that every problem is unique, that your data is unlike anyone else's. We believe in learning, in coming to each problem with a child-like curiosity, ready to be surprised by it. We learn the subtleties of your data and your data environment, and tailor a solution that makes best use of your specific goals and circumstances. And much like every problem is different, so must solutions be: there is no one size that fits all and no one algorithm above all others. Anyone can plot a correlation line, but to really bring business value requires a deep understanding and a rich toolkit to leverage it. Go beyond off-the-shelf solutions and harness the power of tailored analytics. Go beyond traditional predictive analytics and reap the benefits of causal modelling. You care about your data. So do we.Michael Brand, founder

[Michael, head of Otzma Analytics] helped me gain enormous clarity on how to use machine learning as a strategic objective as well as information and data needs, analytics, and Big Data within the world of Investment Management. He also has great insight into the pitfalls and unintended consequences of managing data science projects. I would recommend Michael for consultancy and training work to help you optimise the business value you gain from data whether it be analytical modelling, data science or using artificial intelligence and more specifically machine learning.
