A global leader in innovative plant-based ingredients, Roquette addresses current and future societal challenges by unlocking the potential of nature across the food, nutrition and health markets. Their ingredients respond to essential needs, enable healthier lifestyles and are critical components in life-saving medicines. The company’s approach to innovation extends inwardly and in 2018, they embarked on a digital transformation project to revolutionize their production facilities and processes.
To supply a demanding and rapidly growing market requires efficiency and seamless performance. Pierre-Louis Bescond, Head of Data Science at Roquette, recognized very early on that in a data-heavy industry, transformation would be impossible without the ability to rapidly process and unlock insights from large datasets. With 250 production processes emitting between 500 and 3000 records every 30 seconds, Pierre-Louis implemented Alteryx to consolidate, process and analyze disparate data sources and enable strategic decision-making at scale.
“At Roquette, we are used to processing plant-based raw materials and I see data as my raw materials,” says Pierre-Louis. “With the rise of interconnected systems, sensors and analyzers in all business functions, the ability to derive meaningful insights that drive change requires more than slow, manual data ingestion and analysis.”
