AkzoNobel Case Study

Our work with the Data Insights Team at AkzoNobel

Paint, coating and chemicals firm AkzoNobel expanded its share of the ship paint market, following an eight-week data analysis project with four CDT students.

Using advanced computing and statistical methods, the team plotted the movements of every company ship worldwide at 15 minute intervals. The insights it gathered helped AkzoNobel strengthen its commercial strategies and make decisions with greater confidence.
