Spending too much time and money on data science and analytics recruitment or building ineffective teams? Data Science Radar is a Data Science Skills Assessment tool that enables you to assess exactly which competencies your team needs and prioritise recruitment and upskilling to achieve data-driven transformation.


Even data scientists with broad experience are more suited to particular specialisms. It pays to get the talent that meets your current needs, rather than hold out for the perfect (or impossible to afford).

Our Data Science Radar maps diverse competencies in the field of data science against six core data science traits identified by Mango Solutions, quantifying relative strengths and areas for improvement at the individual and team level – enabling users to make decisions based on evidence rather than intuition.

So, plan your next hires in accordance with defined analytic traits and create development programmes that enable individuals to thrive.
