A juicy announcement as Mango becomes part of Ascent.

It’s a big day for our business as we welcome the tremendously talented folks at Mango (and a massive shot of vitamin C) into the Ascent family.


Data & AI


Mango is the largest data science and advanced analytics business of its kind in the UK, with a customer book that includes Bosch, Hiscox, Mondelez, MoneySupermarket and Pfizer.

Their mix of hands-on consultancy, training and technology helps organisations build operational acumen: using data to enhance business judgement and decision-making to drive growth, lower costs and optimise performance. And they’re great at it - just last month they won Best Data & Analytics Team of the Year at the Data IQ Awards 2020.

Mango is a milestone acquisition in the Ascent story as we invest in cutting-edge data science capability to help our customers build digital muscle. Having seen Mango in action as we worked in partnership in 2020, it’s also the natural evolution of a highly effective relationship that is proven to deliver increased customer value.

At a technical level, Mango adds 35 super-smart UK data science practitioners to Ascent’s multi-skilled software and data teams, helping customers build insight, model scenarios and determine ’the next best…’ decisions for their businesses.
