Implementing demand forecasting doesn’t come without challenges. This is how Xebia addresses them.

Embrace uncertainty

The future always brings unexpected surprises, but there are many changes you can anticipate. Xebia brings you the latest tools to model seasonal effects and offers you a wide range of possible scenarios.


Seasonality takes many forms: from weekend drops to Christmas surges. To track all components of seasonality, Xebia brings you high-performing machine learning algorithms that model the ups and downs in demand.

Seamless integration

The integration of machine learning models with your infrastructure can be costly. Xebia offers you a wide range of tested templates compatible with all major cloud providers and all type of data structures.

Continuous adaptation

Models become outdated because demand changes over time. This decrease in the model’s performance is known as data drift. By working closely together with your team, we will transfer the knowledge they need to retrain and update the model after we're done and gone.

The team at Xebia has shown a ‘hands-on, can-do’ mentality from the very beginning. They brought their experience in machine learning, data engineering, and best practices with them, and transferred their knowledge to the rest of the team from the get-go.
