Transform Product Development by Connecting Enterprise Data with Advanced Analytics & AI

Top performing CPG brands are known for taking a data-driven approach to evolving their brands based on marketing and sales data. As functions and processes become more connected across the enterprise, the next big opportunity for data-driven insights is centered around R&D.

CPG companies are sitting on huge volumes of data about products, customers, consumers and operations. This data is housed in systems and spreadsheets across the enterprise, from sales and marketing to manufacturing and R&D.

With a data-driven approach to R&D, CPG companies can drive significant benefits, including:

  • Faster speed to market
  • Improved product quality
  • Increased productivity
  • Optimized regulatory compliance

We help companies connect enterprise data with scalable advanced analytics and data science-based capabilities. Data-driven insights augment the R&D workforce with predictive and prescriptive insights for the product development process.

Advanced R&D Analytics Addresses These CPG Business Needs

Data science and AI should augment and automate R&D operations and decision making. Here are a few key use cases and examples that demonstrate the real value companies have achieved.

Spend classification

Improve Data Quality

Identify data errors early in the specification development process to avoid rework and improve data quality; clean up unstructured or unorganized data with data science enabled classification.
