What is Data Analytics

Data Analytics is the practice of using data to drive business strategy and performance.  It includes a range of approaches and solutions from looking backward to evaluate what happened in the past, to forward-looking scenario planning and predictive modeling.  Data Analytics spans all of Deloitte’s functional businesses to address a continuum of opportunities in Information Management, Performance Optimization, and Analytic Insights. 

We assist our clients in solving a wide variety of data related problems and define strategies for them to better manage, interpret and monetize their data assets. We are the leaders in analytics both globally and in South Africa and work across all the big companies, with a large focus on financial services and a strong footprint into the rest of Africa.

What is Information Management

Information Management is about collecting, understanding and controlling data.

“Manage your data, manage your world”

Organisations create, store and transfer massive amounts of data on a daily basis. When appropriately managed it has the potential to deliver significant business value; but, conversely, it also presents a considerable risk if mismanaged.


We assist our clients in designing and implementing data management solutions aimed at delivering true business value. We service some of the largest organisations, across different industries and over a wide range of business functions and capabilities. These include Finance, Risk and Regulation and Customer Relationship Management.


Services include: definition of enterprise data strategy, assessment of data quality across multiple platforms, conformance with regulatory requirements and definitions of data governance structures and frameworks.

What are Analytic Insights?

Analytic Insights is about using data to answer the tough questions.

“Converting insight and foresight into decisions”


We assist clients in understanding the future in terms of what will happen, dealing with the predictive and prescriptive elements of the continuum. We answer the questions: why is this happening? what if trends continue? what will happen next? what is the best outcome?


We do this through the use of the latest advanced analytics techniques such as data mining, pattern matching, data visualisation, cognitive computing and predictive modelling on a combination of structured and unstructured data sources. Our analyses are focused on producing insights and algorithms that enable businesses to make better decisions.
