Insight and Action

We applied genome-sequencing techniques, which enabled us to cluster users into previously undiscovered market segments. This improved the client’s visibility into specific consumer types’ preferences and helpedidentify new commercial opportunities.

We also introduced a capability to predict user behaviour which can be used to reduce the operational cost of low-latency infrastructure. We worked alongside the provider’s in-house analytics team to accelerate the adoption of the new techniques, enabling the client to generate insights and achieve results faster.
