learning R&D partner


With co-creation, we tackle exciting challenges together with our clients by applying cutting-edge techniques from the extensive N-SIDE analytics toolbox.

Whether the solution requires nonlinear optimization, reinforcement learning, or another advanced analytics technique, N-SIDE will select the right methodology and provide experts and tools to help you build your new solution.


Leveraging the domain knowledge of both your business stakeholders and N-SIDE’s energy incubation experts, we’ll work together through ideation and prototyping to arrive at an innovative, production-ready application.

How it works

From proof of concept to production

Our co-creation service is divided into three phases:

Phase 1: Prototyping


A combined team of experts from N-SIDE and your business will co-create a prototype solution using advanced analytics.

We rely on a lean approach using short iteration cycles during this phase. After each development cycle, you’ll have the opportunity to assess the value of the new solution and make a stop, pivot, or go decision.

Phase 2: Industrialization


We design prototypes in such a way that successful ones can be easily turned into production-ready applications.

A team of dedicated software engineers will make sure your application is seamlessly integrated within your IT and operational ecosystems and has the necessary computational power in the cloud. Finally, it will be extensively tested to ensure it is robust and reliable.
