Mirror AgTech

Food and agricultural systems generate huge volumes of data, especially with new digital technologies. The impact of this data is realised when it is linked directly to the business. Advanced analytics can cut through the noise and find the insights from complex data.

Mirror Analytics went above and beyond to help us understand a complex challenge for a large livestock producer. Not only did they solve the problem and deliver excellent insight, but they were a pleasure to work with.

How it Works

Start with impact.

We start by defining the business impact of the data, and how analytics might deliver extra value. You can come to us with a predefined analytics question, or we can work with you to develop a set of questions that suit your needs. We focus on back-end analytical solutions for agricultural technologies generating lots of data, but we can tailor our service to match your business size or data assets.

Hook analytics into your data stream.

Digital technologies can generate large volumes of high-quality agricultural data for specific components of the business. Send us a sample of your data, or give us access to a data stream, and we will assess what’s needed to make your vision happen. We use our experience in data science and analytics to combine, enrich, and link different data sources to create analytical solutions that show the whole picture.

Cutting-edge analytics.

We apply the latest analytical solutions to your data and give you a result, along with concrete recommendations for the business. Agile sprints deliver results quickly and keep you in the development loop.

Ongoing collaboration and learning.

We work with you to identify opportunities for ongoing learning. We can help with implementing a back-end analytical solution for your business, or designing a longer-term set of experiments to transform your organisation using data.
