Name two exciting experiences in your digital journey
I worked on a digital transformation project optimizing and digitalizing the overall financial planning and forecasting process. The objective was to help our client use historical business data for future financial and operations data forecasting and simulations. C-suite and management could obtain insights on the data model, and carry it through the decision-making process.
Another project I was involved in was providing digital solutions for the retail industry.
Leveraging a big data analysis model, business results could be predicted. The model also provided solutions for markdown strategy and contributed to inventory clearance.
