What is Cobalt Analytics?

Cobalt Analytics was formed as the need for data specialists became more and more apparent. With the growth of data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and the advent of digital disruption, organisations need to control, manage, understand and secure their data effectively so that they can use that data to make better business decisions. Data is at the forefront of business requirements, and Cobalt Analytics is there to assist you with all you Microsoft data needs.




COBALT is a chemical element which requires careful care when being used. However, when handled properly, and used in the correct way, it can be turned into a valuable and useful asset. We see your data the same way.

Colloquially known as Goblin Ore, it can be compared to the mischievous nature of data, and the havoc it can wreak when not controlled.

The atomic number of Cobalt (27), is also the International Dialing Code for South Africa, our home country, and one in which mining plays such a vital role. It is commonly stated that data is now the most valuable resource in the world, and South Africa has always been at the forefront of valuable resources.

Cobalt is also a shade of blue, as is a fairly popular cloud service which we focus a lot of our attention on.

ANALYTICS is the discovery, interpretation and communication of meaningful insights from data. It can be thought of as the foundation of “data based decision making”. Analytics is the convergence of statistics, computer programming and domain knowledge.

Analytics is used by businesses to describe, predict and enhance business processes. Where analysis focuses on what happened in the past, analytics focuses on what’s likely to happen in the future.

Analytics can be applied to many areas within a business, including Risk, People, Cashflow and Security.

COBALT ANALYTICS will work with you to ensure the best value from your analytics projects.
