Meet the people behind the insights behind the data
Hedgehog Analytics was established in 2014 by industry veterans, specialists with backgrounds in statistics and experience in senior industry positions with some of the biggest names in business. We set off on a mission to make data science accessible by delivering insights, not just analytics.
We have a number of guiding principles that we follow in our work:
Any analysis is only as good as the data used to produce it.
“Garbage in, garbage out” is a truism.
We subscribe to the wisdom of Occam’s Razor
Simple, parsimonious solutions are more elegant than complex alternatives, and are to be preferred, where possible.
Often the hardest part of any analysis is explaining the result.
As with most endeavors, communication counts.
Software is a tool, not a rule.
Tableau or Spotfire, R or Python is not important - we let the use case and related analysis dictate software selection. While we are primarily an open source shop, we are equally comfortable with reliable commercial alternatives.
We bring rigor to our work
We’re thorough. We make sure we understand requirements going in, and reconfirm and re-establish objectives along the way. We make it a point to understand the goals of a project at the outset in a way that informs the final analysis and produces actionable results. We are meticulous about all aspects of an analytics project, from scrubbing data to thinking carefully about how we present results.
We run on intellect
We pride ourselves on being intelligent, not academic. Our solutions are practical and effective and are designed to be easily implemented and understood.
We don’t stop at analytics
We derive insights from our analysis, with a goal of helping our clients make decisions that are better informed..
