Data Analysis

Data collected from a multitude of systems can be analyzed to predict possible outcome and trends. For example, in the retail industry, a customer profile and preferences can be retrieved from Social Media sites, such as Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram. Based on previous purchases at the store, the data can be used to predict what the customer will likely to buy. The more data we have, the better prediction result can be produced. Machine Learning tool is used to automate the process and generates faster recommendations to better service targeted customers.


Voluminous data collected at high speed can be daunting for someone to analyze and make sense of the data. Social media has brought a new dimension to our data consumption. A burst of data could flag profitable opportunities and repetitive actions can lead to trends on buyers’ behavior. Using BigData technologies to optimize your business process is the perfect recipe to profitability. Optimal Data Group can help your organization find the right BigData combination to forecast trends and predicts outcome that could result in increase revenue.


The internet changed everything in the early 1990s. The next major change will be related to blockchain technology. In brief, blockchain is a global distributed ledger which is not controlled by any entity. The ledger can resides on an infinte number of computers connected to the internet and all information in the blockchain is securely encrypted. The year 2016 will be devoted to exploring finding the benefits of blockchain. Some experts are saying that blockchain will open doors to enable faster and more secure financial transactions.

Past, Present & Future
Established in 1997, Optimal Data Group Inc. was founded by a group of IT consultants who previously worked at Fortune100 companies.
Our head office is located in Ottawa, Canada and we service customers from both the private and public sectors. We focus on building, implementing and supporting applications using database technologies, such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Hadoop, Cassandra, HP Vertica and SAP Hanna. We help organizations upgrading, older system applications, from slow single server into Cloud based architectures, for a more resilient, safer, faster and cost effective IT environment.
We invest in R&D to find out ways to help our current and future customers with innovative technologies. We use Machine Learning (ML) to predict customer behaviors and explore ways to improve business processes. Based on the data collected from the applications, feedback data from surveys and data from Social Media, we use ML to find optimal patterns based on demographics and psychographics data to increase business profits and customer's satisfaction.

We are also working on optimizing data collection from devices which are enabled to use the Internet Of Things (IoT). The massive amount of data collected from IoT devices will be another wave of innovation for data analysts. Read more about these innovative subjects in our blog.
