We make data come alive! We create engaging dynamic charts and animations; show high level summary charts with the ability to drill down to the lowest level of detail in real time; or even come up with completely new ways to interact with your data.
We use the awesome d3.js library, and other tools as needed.
Analysis covers many skills, and every situation demands something unique. Usually it involves finding patterns in lots of data, perhaps with an eye to an investment opportunity or reducing costs. The best data analysis requires an appreciation of this link back to the business. For example, we are experienced in Business Case Analysis - helping you model the impact of key decisions. Arthur presented on Monte Carlo Business Case Analysis at the 2014 Australian Python Convention; and made data estimation easier with this web tool.
We use Amazon Web Services, python and pandas - but we're not above spreadsheets when needed!
We specialise in problems that are too big to solve with a calculator and a spreadsheet. Like deciding which classes your school should offer given limited resources. Or how to best route products from suppliers, via warehouses, to retail outlets. Classic linear programming stuff.
To keep costs down, we use open source solvers wherever possible, usually using python and lpsolve.
We are the creators of Signup Zone, a webapp that allows you to make signup sheets, rosters, rotas or schedules for your group.
Signup Zone is as easy to use as a paper signup but with all the convenience of being online. You don't need to create an account to start making a signup – just head to the website, jump right in and enjoy the pleasure that comes with using a well thought-out web tool.
Arthur is the man who does all Artana's programming. He taught himself to program on an Apple II computer at high school in the 80s. When he was 17 he had fun programming a game called "Galactic Frontiers" (which was included in 'The Best of Inside Mac Games').
Programming took a back-seat for a while (read 20 years), while Arthur studied maths and science and worked in consulting and finance. He gained a PhD in Physics from Caltech in the USA. He worked as a business consultant at PwC and as a researcher and portfolio manager at Barclay Global Investors and BlackRock. He is currently an Adjunct Fellow at Western Sydney University.
A career change in 2012 saw Arthur returning to his first passion, and he now collaborates with other innovative programmers and designers to create web apps, websites, data visualisations and more.
What Anna likes most about working on Artana's projects is that they give her an opportunity to let lose her creative side! Anna is behind the design, look, photography, feel, and flow of Artana's projects. She grew up immersed in art, with most of her family being professional artists.
Anna has a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology, which comes in handy when thinking through 'user experience' with Arthur.
Bailey ensures all visiting clients and collaborators feel very welcome at the Artana office. With a lot of love to give, Bailey has also taken on the responsibility of lowering staff stress levels when things get a bit hectic.
