Commercial prediction

Problem description

  • Today, we rely for a large part on a bottom-up information flow to understand where the market is going (mostly from our partners, our customers, our sales representatives.
  • We complete this information with historical data such as sales pipeline, sales historical data
  • This information source is both very diffuse, unconnected and very subjective.

Scope of project

  • Identify all existing sources of information, both internal and external
  • Identify ways to structure this information so that it can be used to predict in which way the market is evolving
    • Who are our tomorrow’s customers?
    • Where are they located?
    • What do they want?
    • Which market segment do they belong to?
    • What competences do we need to anticipate this demand?

Potential solutions

  • Machine learning
  • Can also be a student from Mathematics and Statistics.

This project would suit a student with an interest in data science and applied statistics. A student with interest in entrepreneurship and management would also be suitable, with a sufficient background in statistics. Machine learning methods, and other suitable statistical methods should be examined as a means to develop a predictive support system for sales and commercial data.
