Data Science and Engineering

Data is at the core of what we do here at Decathlon, essential at every step in the life cycle of our products.

We engage in the technological and human transformations necessary to enable the development of the best data solutions and put them in the hands of users where they create the most value.

Our priority is to simplify and drive Decathlon’s data-centric transformation by bringing together 100% data solutions, qualitative and available data, and best practices.

Data Science and Engineering

Fair use of data at every step of our products' life cycle.

With a community of 170+ million customers worldwide, we are constantly generating data—and varied data at that. We manage data infrastructures of significant size that we sort and organize to help us make smart decisions across all of our activities.

From prototype testing, market analysis, and fabric choices to production forecasts, and more, through research and carefully developed methodologies, data allows us to predict and improve, solicit and gather feedback, and guide our designers and engineers with real insights.
