Double-digit growth for the Data Strategy division

The strategy focused on Data Strategy activities is being validated, with this division’s sales up +12% in 2018, driving the Group’s growth.

In a market environment slowed down in 2018 by the impact of GDPR’s rollout, Weborama has consolidated its leading position for data marketing and digital transformation technologies. Its unique expertise for delivering scientific consumer insights is being capitalized on and integrated increasingly effectively by both longstanding and new clients for a growing range of missions.

 

Continued investment and development in the US

Weborama continued moving forward with its research and development investments in 2018. More specifically, the Group recruited various high-potential experts and further strengthened its technologies, particularly for Artificial Intelligence.

Thanks to these investments, Weborama’s database is continuing to be enhanced and its operability with market players is becoming increasingly efficient, positioning the Group at the heart of the Data value chain.

In the US, in a challenging market historically dominated by industry giants, while the first concrete commercial deals are taking longer than expected, Weborama set up several partnerships in 2018 and is maintaining its strategy for development in this country.
