This job is no longer available

Our Analytics & AI (A&AI) practice is a cornerstone of Capgemini Invent’s digital capability. Together with our research partner MIT, we have presented our views on the market challenges and how organisations can transform themselves using the power of digital.

The companies that compete most successfully are those who have data as an integral part of their business model. This allows them to use analytics to identify customer needs, and to use AI to optimise and automate the speed and quality of their decision making. However, constant change means even the most mature organisation needs to focus on innovation and optimisation to realise the opportunities presented by Artificial Intelligence & Automation.
