SYSTRA provides expert data analysis and visualisation to help clients in multiple sectors make informed decisions at all stages of their major infrastructure projects.

Data science services for better decision-making

We live in a data age. Data is collected, maintained, shared and used in growing quantities – for many purposes – by governments, businesses and other organisations across all sectors. It is used to provide insights and analyses that enable new projects, products and services to be developed – with the potential to create trillions of pounds of value.

For planners and developers of major infrastructure projects, gathering, analysing and generating actionable insights from data to inform their plans and designs can be a daunting prospect. Specialised data science expertise is required to manage, process and interrogate large volumes of data, and to produce visualisations that present insights and analysis in accessible and useable formats.

SYSTRA has expertise across multiple data science disciplines to help organisations produce meaningful insights from the data they collect and create. We use scientific methods, maths and statistics, programming, analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and storytelling to identify and explain the insights hidden within data.
