Absolute certainty is a privilege of uneducated minds and fanatics. It is, for scientific folk, an unattainable ideal.Cassius J. Keyser

Read the job postings from any website used by IT professionals searching for employment, and you will find that almost all jobs today have one thing in common: dealing with massive data sets. Whether the industry is national defense, web technology, or high finance, managers everywhere are faced with the same problems:

- What's the right way to interpret all this data?
- How can I process this data efficiently?
- What secrets does the data hold with regard to improving my business strategy?
- How can I find the signals buried in the noise?
- Does the data tell me if our new plan is an improvement over the old one?
- How should I redesign my survey to get even better data?

From experience, we have found that many industry professionals handle these questions in an ad-hoc fashion, using vague intuitions. More often than not, this results in costly mistakes. On the other hand, the job of a statistician is to answer precisely these questions. By consulting with us, you can rest assured that these questions will be handled rigorously, either by ourselves or our associates, who are all fellow graduates from the top statistics programs in the world.
