Collaborate with Data Scientists for your organization

Today, there is a gap between data scientists and business domain experts, which limits the impact of AI in Switzerland. Many organizations wish to be accompanied by an external, neutral partner in their digital transformation journey. These partnerships must provide innovative solutions to organizations’ business challenges. The SDSC teams provide support in gathering, analyzing and exploiting data at best.
