In February 2016, a press conference revealing the discovery of a gravitational wave was streamed live into our Edinburgh office to a small group of, frankly, quite emotional people. Predicted by Einstein over 100 years ago, this discovery was the culmination of a 25 year international project which included many of the Scottish Universities.

So we pay attention when science confirms a significant breakthrough. After all, it’s hard to beat an accurate prediction made across space-time from a distance of one century ago.

In our day-to-day roles, we analysts are used to dealing with large data sets comprised of billions of records and terabytes of data. With scalable resources, we can usually turn this data round quickly to give actionable business insights for our clients. But storing, processing and analysing the interactions that people make with our clients every day pales into insignificance compared to sheer volume of data that the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will produce.
