Microeconomix relies on its economic analysis and econometrics expertise to deliver innovative and highly performing solutions to its clients. Their approach to analytics and quantitative issues relies on their ability as economists to understand market forces and on their competence as data analysts, from collecting and transforming data to providing access to their models through graphical user interfaces and dashboards.
Their methodology starts with a detailed analysis of the clients’ needs by closely collaborating with their teams. They then use dedicated data wrangling tools to transform raw, unstructured data from many sources into an operational database specifically designed to address the issues at stake. Finally, they develop custom-made analytical solutions focused on their needs.
By controlling every step of the analysis and solution design instead of relying on automated black-box procedures, the teams are highly reactive and flexible and are able to tackle any specific need.
This approach allows them to be innovative in dealing with complex analytical business questions while taking special care in providing solutions adapted to the functioning of specific markets. Combining the intellectual curiosity of academically-trained economists with the solid experience of consultants and the competences of data analysts, they transform their models into operational user interfaces the clients can use to reproduce the analyses.
