    Vision and Strategy

    True digital transformation of fast-moving scientific, engineering and R&D organisations can only come from a partner that understands your business, your data and its real-world meaning.

    Tessella consulting, trusted by the largest R&D organisations for over 40 years, prioritises and delivers impactful data initiatives that make sense of complex domains, knowledge, and technology landscapes, to deliver a crafted actionable roadmap for next-level digital transformation.

    Organizational change

    Agile, data-driven approaches to R&D need new change management strategies to release businesses to deploy and benefit from new digital advances and intelligent capabilities.

    We direct and advise on technology platforms, data management infrastructure, business processes, resources, and skills. Combined with mentoring and direction, we show you how to organize around new data-driven approaches and unlock hidden capability.

    Proof of value

    Even mature, experienced digital organizations struggle to deliver value from data-driven investments.

    Our unique proof-of-value approach de-risks internal investment in new data-driven Proof-of-concepts, projects, and programmes of work. We rapidly determine a use case's real-world value before we start, using structured evidence – not guesswork – identifying which projects to take forward with confidence.

    Implementation and control

    Data is only as valuable as the human connections made with it. Software is the bond between people and your digital capability.

    Converting smart AI innovations from the lab into high-performing, trusted AI solutions at the desktop, the edge, and mobile devices remains an overlooked challenge. Yet, there's no business value without it.

    Our consultants create and plan for your AI and data science enabled infrastructure. By collaborating with your internal stakeholders and customer teams, we ensure your digital governance and technology strategy move ahead with clear direction and immediate purpose.


    Data requires a special set of skills and experience.

    It’s the people who make the difference.
