Global Analytics Academy
To execute the organization's AI strategy, ING defined the need to grow AI skills throughout the company. The goal was to develop AI competencies for their global workforce and grow the ability to contribute to and work on AI use cases.
Besides developing a common understanding of AI throughout their business, ING also expressed the ambition to establish a standard way of working. They asked Xebia to provide learning journeys for over 5,000 employees globally by providing coaching and learning services.
Xebia has the expertise to deliver a wide range of trainings, for our business people, our executive and the experienced Data Scientists.”
Xebia has been teaching over 5,000 professionals face-to-face and 52,000 in total at ING worldwide. This led to the introduction of best-practices and a standardized way of working. As a result, ING established a higher efficiency in the realization of use cases, a bigger use case pipeline, and the ability to tackle AI challenges more effectively than ever before.
At ING, Xebia helped kick off multiple big data implementations. Adding to that, Xebia worked closely together with the Commercial Banking branch of ING to help establish a data-driven culture within the organization. Over the last years, a number of business cases have been developed and released into production.
In order to escalate the skills of the Advanced Analytics team, Xebia developed the Data & AI Accelerator Program. For ING, the full 24-day program was organized as an in-company program.
