Your challenge 

In the Consumer & Marketing Intelligence team in BG Personal Care, Philips works with various data sources (retail panel data, media spend, ATL data, Amazon data etc). In order to make better use of the large quantity of data that they have, Philips started building a data science / advanced analytics capability in the team. By means of combining data sources and by means of more elaborately analyzing the current data, Philips intends to gain new insights from the data, and improve our data-driven decision making 

Last year they already started several analytics projects, but are expanding in the coming year. Some projects will be done by Philips, others will be done in cooperation with either a third party, of with data science departments in Philips.
