From data to action

We turn data into action to drive a positive change in our society.
We collect, analyze and use data to support the teams behind the digital transformation of organizations. We deliver actionable insights and elaborate strategies to improve our clients’ performance, based on the most recent, accurate and relevant data from benchmarks, surveys and AI. We do it with human intelligence, cutting-edge technologies… and a little twitch of nonconformism.

Our expertise

Higher Education research

As a venture of the Emerging Group, an international HR consultancy specializing in cooperation between companies and universities, we have a strong expertise in Higher Education research. Emerging is a pioneer in implementing employability strategies. Since 2010, Emerging has published the Global Employability University Ranking, the only worldwide university ranking and study based on feedback from employers.

We believe that making education more performant holds the keys to a better world. We help higher education institutions and businesses to boost their relationships and their digital transformation. Emerging Data is the designer and developer of the Higher Education Evaluation Platform HEEP, a dashboard enabling universities to measure and improve their employability performance.



Convertible knowledge


After years providing research findings and reporting to our clients, we realized that it was useless: there were some comes and goes between teams and stake holders, some thoughtful comments, and then the data was buried and forgotten. Why? Because no data-driven strategy had been elaborated, nobody in the company was especially entitled or trained to make decisions and take specific action based on data. In the best scenario, it was a “data changed, do something” panic situation, a common pattern nowadays, with web sites traffic, marketing campaigns or sales funnels. On the other hand, we’ve seen medium size companies wasting fortunes in complex data-driven marketing automations that would finally generate a couple of hundred dollars in sales.

At Emerging Data, we consider there is no “graal” for actionable data: no machine learning algorithm, no generic big data hidden value. We believe in a case by case approach combining human analysis of a data context and machine Learning, that will lead to knowledge convertible - or not - into actions.
