Breakaway from the Pack with Predictive Analytics

IoT product development challenges existing R&D thinking and enables more impactful product development.

Predictive Analytics


The companies in this study all face heavy competition within their segment. They either rely on a flawless state-of-the-art service to their customers or have a strong focus on cost leadership. These companies have embraced the power of analytics and made major steps in incorporating an analytical way of working in their daily business.

How to Gain a Competitive Edge?

To offer clients the opportunity to gain competitive advantage with their data, Inergy uses a powerful, yet easy-to-use full service analytical platform with machine learning technology. Crucial insights and predictions need a solid foundation. This solution can process and store data in any format or volume and boasts of international quality standards (managed BI service), which guarantee that decisions made are based on accurate data.

Once the data is collected and stored, Inergy’s data science team uses a variety of machine learning algorithms (R and Python based) and selects the best performing one in the specific client situation.

The outcomes are presented to the business user in a visually friendly way. No IT involvement or statistical knowledge required.  

Business Driven

It all starts with a clear view on the potential business value. What will be the cost benefit if we implement these new insights? If we can select the right prospects to maximize our conversion rate, what extra revenue will be created?

Time Box and Data Scope

In our standardized approach we use a time box of maximum 6 weeks. We only focus on the data necessary to substantiate the business potential. This is a necessary step in getting the buy-in from the business owners. In the picture below the way-of-working is displayed.
