Data Science on Demand

Exegetic – Data Science on Demand

The biggest challenge to initiating and maintaining a Data Science capability is finding the right people.

Large enterprises are able to sustain an in-house Data Science team.

Smaller businesses find it more challenging. They understand that data-driven processes are essential to modern business. But where to find skilled Engineers, Statisticians, Analysts and Report Designers to execute their analytics projects?

That's where Exegetic comes into the picture.

We recognise that there are many challenges to adopting and maintaining a small and nimble Data Science team. That's why we offer a flexible and economical solution: Data Science on Demand.


What we believe in


It doesn't make sense for your skilled employees to spend so much time doing mundane, repetitive tasks.

We believe in robust automated systems which will quietly and reliably perform these tasks, liberating your employees to concentrate on the dynamic components of your business.

Cloud Solutions

Maintaining your own hardware is expensive and time consuming.

We believe in shifting storage and processing onto the cloud. In doing so you'll reap these benefits:

  • flexibility (scales with your needs);
  • energy efficient;
  • avoid capital and maintenance costs;
  • automated backup and recovery;
  • automated software updates; and
  • access latest technology.

Rapid Prototyping

We achieve rapid time-to-value, assembling a Proof of Concept or draft analysis within days of data exchange.

We then iterate quickly, focusing on the most pertinent aspects of the analysis. This allows us to transform experiments and prototypes into robust and reliable data solutions.

And you have control over the process every step of the way.

Open Source

We're passionate about working with Open Source tools. This means that the costs of expensive proprietary software are not being passed on to you.


What We Do

On Demand

Many companies have Data Science projects they’d like to start, but they lack the necessary expertise.

With Exegetic you can get up and running with your Data Science project without making a serious long term commitment. We'll start with a Proof of Concept and then expand the project according to your requirements.

Renting a Data Scientist has numerous advantages:

  • Incrementally develop your Data Science capability
  • Only engaged for the duration of your project
  • Part-time or full-time
  • Avoid recruiting and onboarding costs
  • Ongoing support

Launch your project immediately with an experienced Data Scientist on your team.


Accurate and complete information leads to better strategic decisions. We provide analytics which will inform your decision making process.

From basic Descriptive Analysis to advanced Predictive Models, we'll use your data to derive a better understanding of your business and industry. This will give you a strategic and competitive advantage, helping you make informed decisions that reduce costs and maximise revenue.

It's the closest you'll get to having a Crystal Ball.


Some of the tangible products we can build for you:

  • Tools

    There's probably no single off-the-shelf solution which precisely meets your data needs. There probably never will be.

    But we're comfortable working in domains where no tools currently exist and we won't hesitate to build something new which exactly fits your requirements.

  • Visualisations
  • Dashboards
  • Simulations


Big Data? Little Data? Doesn't matter. We're just interested in data.

From server logs to service histories, social media to sensors, spreadsheets to big databases. We'll use whatever data you have at your disposal.

We have experience with a vast variety of data types and forms. And we've learned that there's usually something interesting and useful to be found in most data.

These are some of the things that we'll do with your data:

  • Cleaning and Outlier Removal
  • Augmentation
  • Deduplication
  • All forms of Wrangling!
  • Efficient Storage
  • Curation (documenting format and contents)

API & Scraping

Many web sites expose APIs, which allow programmatic access to their data. We can build scripts which will acquire data from these sites.

Other sites present more of a challenge. We can write sophisticated Web Scrapers which will systematically harvest data from both static and dynamic web pages. All of this without breaking any laws or violating terms of service.


Data Science results can be complex and nuanced. We communicate our analyses in ways that are meaningful, easy to digest and focused on addressing your problems.

If you want to know the nitty-gritty, then we won't dumb it down for you. We'll eviscerate every aspect of the problem and you can scrutinise the details.

Or we'll just cut to the chase and tell you the bottom line: concise results in plain English.


The Data Science landscape is complicated and convoluted. Your employees already understand your business and industry. We'll help them augment this knowledge with the fundamental concepts of Data Science, tools and techniques to turn aspiring analysts into productive practitioners.

We focus on applied learning, working with real data and solving real problems.

We offer tailored training programs suitable for organisations of all sizes. Build your own training program or select one of our established courses:

  • Executive Introduction to Data Science
  • Data Literacy
  • Introduction to R
  • Programming with R
