Munich Strategy and data strategist BLOOM enter strategic partnership
Combination of strategy consulting and data science.
All organizations are now pursuing some form of digital agenda. Some chase new revenue sources in their core markets, others enter new markets with digital models. In this environment, uncertainty and increased speed have led to a ‘digital hype’ where any sort of digital innovation is applauded for. Prioritizing their opportunities is becoming ever more critical for companies.
“We believe that data-driven companies are the winners of today and tomorrow.”
