From data to actionable intelligence
From sourcing raw materials to the shipment of finished goods, we figure out where in the value chain analytics can best be used to maximize impact.

How we do it
The journey towards AI in the real world.
From idea to integrated solution.
Adopting an agile approach is the best way to quickly introduce artificial intelligence in your company. Explore analytics opportunities and define a business case through client workshops. Make a prototype, test, refine and validate its potential. Deploy and integrate the analytics solution into your processes. Scale and roll out for lasting impact. Rinse and repeat, until you reach operational excellence
Combining industrial Intelligence and data science.
The way we combine industrial intelligence with our data science skills is what makes us unique: our starting point is your process, not the data. We know how assets work and our domain experts work with you to understand the specifics of your operations. Our data scientists use those insights to translate your business challenge into an analytical use case and ensure the right data and algorithms are used. We build models from scratch or configure our accelerator kits with pre-built model components to meet your specific needs – whichever will give you the best results.
