Case Studies

Case Studies

We're working with a wide range of organisations. Here are some of our success stories so far.


How a global company learned to harness its data ... and create products for the future. They:

  • cleaned and analysed data from different locations, and in different formats
  • developed a minimum viable product that could offer real value to customers
  • learned a variety of skills in predictive modelling and machine learning
  • encouraged other AkzoNobel staff to consider how they could develop their own ideas

How a small project convinced a large multi-national corporation of the power of better data analytics. They:

  • identified “substantial” potential savings and sources of additional revenue
  • encouraged management to invest in a dedicated data analytics unit
  • gained insights on how to transform data quality across the company
  • shifted the company toward a more data-led mindset
