Spark new insights and value from your data

It’s not how much data you have that matters, it’s how you use it.

Leveraging some of the world’s best academics, industry experts and technologies, the Data Spark scheme provides an agile and innovative research and development platform that enables business leaders to experiment, test new ideas, and create PoC’s.

Data Spark tackles real life problems faced by business decision makers to drive fresh insights into their data and business.
