Convinced by the importance and long-term viability of a collective and independent model like datacraft, Wavestone joins the Club and will be significantly investing in its development.

datacraft: a unique Club to help companies accelerate their data and artificial intelligence projects

datacraft brings together a community of data scientists from 29 member companies and government agencies, plus over 600 researchers and freelancers, in an independent third-party platform. Together, they share their cutting-edge knowledge, experience, and best practices to meet the challenges facing businesses and society.

As an innovative platform for agile working and learning in data science, the Club's purpose is based on the observation that all organizations are facing growing challenges around data and artificial intelligence. At the same time, they are struggling to recruit and retain expert talent in these highly coveted fields. datacraft's mission is to provide an answer to this dual challenge.

A unique opportunity for Wavestone consultants: work alongside the best experts to bring even greater value to their clients

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. "In particular, Wavestone's recognized expertise in cybersecurity will shed new light on data & AI topics. This is in keeping with the spirit of the Club: to compare points of view to, ultimately, stimulate discussion and accelerate projects.", adds Isabelle Hilali.

Chadi Hantouche, Partner at Wavestone and in charge of relations with datacraft, concludes: "Confronting our vision with an ever-growing number of players is essential for our data & AI teams. The resources allocated and the active participation of our consultants in datacraft's development are key to maintaining a high level of expertise and bringing even more value to our clients."
