With ForePaaS, the Data Science market has a platform to live up to its promises: designed to meet the technology and security requirements of global companies, ForePaaS provides the agility businesses need to innovate and deliver actionable projects swiftly (data visualization, predictive analysis, artificial intelligence). The robustness of the platform allows customers to deploy their projects across all or part of their organization, at the pace of their choosing.
As such, ForePaaS is the first solution to empower organizations such as Total (leading oil company), Havas (leading media company) or Saint-Gobain (world #1 building materials) to accelerate their data projects in a spectacular way while keeping control over them.
Created in 2015, ForePaaS is the vendor of the first multi-cloud and automated platform as a service to scale fast and secure data analytics applications. With ForePaaS, customers maintain control over the intelligence resulting from the analysis and processing of their data. The ForePaaS platform, which enables companies to leverage their data to develop strong competitive advantage, has already won over the likes of Total, Saint-Gobain Group and Cinémas Gaumont Pathé.
