Data, an undeniable added value for your company

The main challenge for Chief Analytics and Data Officers? Scaling the value of data exploitation and artificial intelligence (AI). Despite heavy investments, companies and organizations have not really achieved their data ambitions. AI and data exploitation have yet to become differentiation drivers for legacy companies – they are for born-digital companies.

The explosion of omnichannel customer relations and online sales, the in-depth reinvention of supply chains and their social and environmental impact, the accelerating need to know, attract and retain talent… The digital transformation of companies requires – even for the most advanced – profound changes. To exploit the full potential of AI and Data, companies are moving towards less generic use cases, serving the singularities of their industry. The success of these projects depends on the ability of business units to adopt a Data/IA-by-design logic, while benefiting from real support resources (Product Owner Data, Data-evangelist…).

Wavestone joins datacraft, a leading community on data and AI

datacraft is a learning & coworking Club for data scientists. It allows data scientists and data engineers to share best practices and train with their peers. datacraft enables cross-fertilization and helps accelerate the implementation of data and artificial intelligence projects. The first Base opened in February 2020 in Paris, gathering pioneer member companies. datacraft is also hosting 600+ high level data science researchers and freelancers in residence. Our mission is to contribute to an efficient and responsible use of data.

By joining datacraft, Wavestone will benefit from the top-level expertise, network, and strike force of the Club’s members. Ghislain de Pierrefeu, Partner data & AI at Wavestone, explains: “Now, more than ever, we need to think collectively, to share solutions and their impacts, to think medium-term, sovereignty, frugality, and thus draw all the value from the emulation which currently dominates the market”. Isabelle Hilali, CEO and founder of datacraft, adds: “Wavestone’s presence within the Club seemed obvious to us given how compatible our DNAs are as focused, responsible and positive players in data & AI transformation.”

In addition to sharing their own experience, Wavestone’s consultants will be able to compare their convictions and enrich their skills through contact with the best data scientists in the business, while at the same time making available first-rate expertise that is closely aligned with companies’ operational issues.
