A data alchemist can transform raw data into next best actions.

Like many other species, Homo sapiens does not like change. However, over time he has been able to adapt to his environment like no other before him, from the Stone Age to the post-industrial era.

By extension, so-called “legal” persons often advocate a change in customer behaviors, but find it difficult to reorganize themselves when the situation requires it… Between Summer 2020 and January 2021, Swiss-based Calyps underwent a perilous exercise of self-questioning, before making its transformation definitely happen and communicating its corporate mission.
