Companies everywhere are struggling with the accelerating pace of decision making needed to keep up with the increasing volume of data.  At the same time, adoption of AI technologies has slowed down in the enterprise.  What is missing is a new breed of Continuous Planning and Execution systems that can react to events in real-time and can integrate AI recommendations and human expertise in a repeatable and auditable way.  That is what Dataviva has built.

As a spin-out of one of the largest retail planning and decision system consultancies worldwide, the Dataviva team has worked together for many years building solutions for some of the world’s largest retailers.  Frustrated with the current state of the art, they aim to re-invent both their application space and the way these systems function and are put to work.
