After the first two phases of upstream study and POC implementation, the third phase of this Startup Studio consisted in industrializing the technical solution, developing it commercially by relying on the group’s subsidiaries and designing the operating model of the business unit, which will be responsible for this solution after we leave. This project has enabled me to live the day-to-day life of an entrepreneur and to develop my data competences (API, database, Python, PaaS, etc.). This mission was all the more interesting as it carried a strong strategic stake: helping a large group move from product offering to service offering.
