Distlytics Ltd is a boutique consultancy providing Business Analysis, Project Management and PMO services.  Delivered either as a contract/consultancy engagement or through education or advisory services, it can be for generic PM / BA work or can focus on nice areas such as Emerging Technologies, including:

  • Blockchain and CryptoAssets
  • Big Data & Analytics
  • Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning

Clients have included insurance companies, banks, fast-paced startups, financial regulators, law firms and more!

There is a lot of hype and mis-information about how emerging technologies work.   There is also a lot of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) being spread by those who benefit from preventing new technology from disrupting their existing business models.  

What is needed is for people to be given honest, accurate, unbiased and pragmatic information and to be educated about the benefits (and risks) of adopting emerging technology platforms.

That is what Distlytics does – It distils the complexity to make the topic much clearer!


This can be provided to suit your needs and ranges from one hour executive/board briefings and “Lunch & Learn” sessions through to one to four day masterclasses and workshops.

Executive level workshops – Duration: 1 – 2 hrs

Beginning with high level overview of technologies, terms, applications and applicability within client’s industry/sector.  Objective is to better inform C-suite and NEDS about risks, opportunities and strategic consideration.

Initial training –  Duration: 1/2 – 1 Day

Informing and educating attendees about general principles, concepts, architectures and applications of emerging technology.   Delivered on-site and can be customised to client requirements.  Assumes no prior knowledge.

Feasibility workshops – Duration 1 – 2 Days

Aimed at Senior Managers and Department Heads, these sessions bring attendees up to speed with latest emerging technologies, examples of industry applications and typical use cases.  The participants are then guided through features  and benefits and are assisted in developing their own high level use cases.  These can then be used by attendees to develop business cases to either explore or implement technology.

Emerging Technologies provide constantly changing opportunities for a business to extend its capability.  Accelerate your company’s investigation and adoption by working with people who have the expertise to help you.

Masterclasses –  Duration: 2 – 5 Days

Taking your education to the next level, these sessions are ideal for organisations and individuals who need their teams to understand the theory, practice and application of emerging technologies.


A range of consultancy approaches have been used with clients.  Some examples of engagements are shown below.  The key is flexibility as each client and project is unique.

Ad-hoc (retained services)

For some engagements the client has simply needed an extra pair of eyes to review a project to ensure it has been properly thought through and is being executed properly.  This may include attendance at board and team meetings and participation in workshops on an ad-hoc basis.

Investigation/Initiation/kickoff (fixed period)

Helping with the investigation or initiation phase of a project may need several days of on-site work, providing team briefings, running workshops and providing recommendations.

Project Execution

Do you need a resource to act as primary analyst, project manager and general evangelist ?  Perhaps you are looking for someone to kick off an initial project and don’t have the internal resources to dedicate to making the project a success.  If so, we can provide resources to augment your own team for the duration of the project.

Specific services are dependent upon client needs and existing methodologies.  Previous engagements have included:

  • Initial team training
  • Value chain analysis
  • Feasibility study
  • Options analysis
  • Requirements elicitation
  • Workshop planning & execution
  • Project filtering & shortlisting
  • Vendor selection
  • Project Management
  • Board papers
  • Post-project review & recommendation

Advisory Services

We have access to in-depth expertise – technical/development, business strategy, fundraising, marketing and legal to name just a  few.
