Agilisys is one of the UK’s most innovative IT and Business Services providers. We deliver success through innovation, working with our clients to transform services that make a difference to millions of people across the UK.

We formed the Data and Insights practice in late 2020, after COVID-19 transformed how government used data to cope with the pandemic.

Collectively, our team has many decades of experience working in and with the sector, and we have united that knowledge and affinity with best-in-class data architecture, platform engineering and analytics competencies.
