The digital and data world is on the fast track in the Middle East, with local populations embracing technological values more than ever. During the past few years, companies have invested massively in the cloud as well as on local infrastructures to develop their data capabilities. Moreover, the desire to be a pioneer in technological innovation in an increasingly competitive data culture is emerging on both public and professional fronts. All these elements are driving a new era of data science.
Data science will allow for the exploitation of data and its insertion in core strategic and operational activities. It provides value from data, input collection refining and systems development for business and operational purposes.
As a leading strategy consultancy specialized in data science and big data, Ekimetrics has decided to expand its reach to the booming Middle East market by opening a new office in Dubai. This move pinpoints the attractiveness of the market as well as the strong desire of regional corporates to optimize their overall data strategy.
“We have had serious talks with clients from multiple sectors in the past 18 months” shared Emmanuel de Bejarry, founding partner at Ekimetrics.
“We have decided to come closer to them in order to deliver our actionable insights and 10 years of expertise of conducting advanced data science projects. There is a lot of interest and talk about these subjects, but currently few projects under production” added Emmanuel.
Ekimetrics’s purpose is to unlock strategic value through innovative statistical methodologies. It is advising fortune 500 companies on data science questions, and leading projects in more than 40 countries. The firm is constantly innovating in the use of data and statistics to deliver brighter decisions for CEOs, CMOs, CFOs and operational teams. Ekimetrics builds end-to-end approaches, from strategy definition to execution, generating value within 3 to 4 months, even in an early-stage data environment. Its approach to tackle complex analytical questions is unique: the belief in the strength of combining business consulting and advanced analytical skills. The firm is also renowned for its training programs for both executives and operational teams within fortune 500 companies, with programs ranging from data discovery applications to advanced machine learning boot camps for data scientists.
“It is a strategic move for Ekimetrics to address a very promising market. We believe that our capabilities are needed in the region. And that our expertise will find its way through local and foreign companies in the Middle East. The data culture that is rising fast in the region will allow us to push even further our innovative offers, build new tailor-made approaches and expand our current leading position. “, declared Souhad Zeineddine, Regional Manager at Ekimetrics.
Ekimetrics offices will be based at Astrolabs, the Google-partnered Tech Hub in Dubai.
“We decided to join Astrolabs to be at the heart of the digital and data hub in Dubai, sharing our offices with innovative tech startups in data oriented environment. It is in our DNA to be surrounded by innovation. And now, it is time to retrace the path of success.” declared Edouard Daou, Regional Manager at Ekimetrics.
