Missions to our clients
"I am currently on data governance missions. The data will search for an overall coherence. The business lines do not necessarily know how to approach these topics. We show what is already in place, we guide, using a technological approach, towards what is best. We seek to understand how data is processed in everyday life and how to give it value.” Cyril, senior technical-functional consultant
