About this practice

The amount and variety of existing and new data generated in the world today are unprecedented. As this growth continues, so do the opportunities for organizations to capture value from their data. McKinsey Analytics equips clients with unique strategies and tools to unearth meaningful insights from data and turn those into competitive advantages.

What we bring

Deep industry and functional expertise

Beyond models and data, we understand underlying industry economics, customer needs, and competitive dynamics. This knowledge enables us to translate insights from analytics into real-world strategies and impact for clients, ultimately changing how everyone, from the executive suite to the front lines, makes decisions.


The world’s best minds

Our global team of leading data scientists, engineers, and analysts possess deep industry and technical expertise. This diverse ecosystem continues to grow through acquisitions of cutting-edge analytics firms, like QuantumBlack. These professionals work closely with our consultants to enable clients to identify and capture opportunities in their data.

Clients first, always

We deliver insight and impact for clients through a wide range of flexible support models, providing ad hoc, deeply transformational, and ongoing analytics architecture and solutions. Importantly, we are fully technology agnostic and able to work with our clients’ preferred technologies and platforms. Once tools and models are implemented, we focus on capability building and skill transferring to ensure analytics becomes a sustained competitive advantage.


A proven track record of impact

Our clients realize immediate and long-term improvements in top-line growth in areas such as churn reduction, customer and channel management, and pricing and promotion optimization; and operational improvements, like fraud prevention, talent retention, and predictive maintenance, to name just a few. Such impact has been proven in over 2,000 projects in the last two years with many of the world’s leading companies and institutions.
