COMBINING VISION AND DATA TO DRIVE DIGITISATION
Doing business is increasingly about merging the physical and digital worlds, with the latter becoming ever more important. This remains a significant challenge, because it requires a clear strategy for using and analysing data, and the right technological architecture. Supporting digitisation therefore calls for a single provider that can tackle both requirements. In this spirit, boutique strategy consulting firm BLOOM will join forces with VIQTOR DAVIS.
BLOOM helps digital players identify new growth opportunities and bridge the gap to realisation. Its services range from the execution of a digital strategy, to developing custom data products, such as machine learning algorithms and dynamic pricing engines. The BLOOM team consists of analytical strategists with extensive online know-how and data science skills, combined with hands-on entrepreneurial experience. BLOOM predominantly works on complex problems for which there are no off-the-shelf solutions.
VIQTOR DAVIS supports companies in the use of data as a strategic asset. The organisation employs over 250 data specialists offering data strategy, governance, management, science, and analytics support. The company has subsidiaries in the Netherlands, England, and the United States, with managed services provided by teams in Mexico and India.
BLOOM can now service its clients in the growing data science market even better, by building on the expertise, experience, and client base of VIQTOR DAVIS. BLOOM can also leverage VIQTOR DAVIS’ expertise in complementary areas such as data integration, and management of data services.
BLOOM was founded in 2013 by Eric Klaassen and Merlin de Graaf. BLOOM supports national and international players and A-brands, with a healthy mix of corporates, fast growing scale-ups, investment firms, and start-ups.
Merlin de Graaf, Partner at BLOOM: ‘BLOOM has built an excellent reputation over the past 6 years. We have a rapidly growing client base that we have supported in over 100 projects in strategy and data science. Our vision is, and has always been, that data-driven companies are tomorrow’s winners. In a rapidly changing market, we continue to be actively looking for new developments and innovations. We consider VIQTOR DAVIS, with its extensive knowledge and experience, to be an ideal partner to further accelerate BLOOM’s growth.’
Ivo-Paul Tummers, CEO at VIQTOR DAVIS: ‘The causality between the optimal usage of data, and success in business can no longer be attributed to mere chance. The market increasingly demands a player that can support data- and digital transformation across the board. This requires the bundling of various practices. We envision this as a collection of artisans; in other words: “data craftsmanship”. BLOOM fits this proposition perfectly with their unique market position.’
