“We see the magic in raw data. We’re agile, accessible, multi-disciplined and dedicated to cracking any business problem. Most importantly, we humanise data in a way that makes sense for your business,” she said.
Already boasting an impressive client roster including CommBank, Dan Murphy’s and APM, Magic Beans is committed to helping Australian businesses be truly customer driven.
With over twenty years’ experience at the data coalface in London and Sydney, Acheson is well versed in helping clients turn data ecosystems into data assets.
