The COVID pandemic has certainly pushed companies at the peak of digital transformation and has transformed the processes like never before. Many organizations have now accelerated their digitization processes with regards to their customer and supply-chain interactions and also of their internal operations.
Adding these digital or even digitally enabled products has accelerated their portfolios by a whopping seven years. Unimaginable isn’t it? This has helped companies to at least present temporary solutions and meet the client demands more quickly than before the pandemic.
The wave of digital transformation is such that more executives than ever are considering funding for digital initiatives, subsequently increasing the costs, the number of people in technology roles and also the number of customers.

What Makes All the Difference-
Xebia has primarily been a very coding-focused organization. The team takes pride in being the software craftsman that it is. What sets them apart is their vast knowledge and doing things right when it comes to software development, be it test-driven development, behavior development, or any other format.
The company has been known for its Agile and DevOps competency for a very long time. The latest trend that is making a mark in the market is the wave of Low Code.
“That is where we have been focusing.”

Although organizations realize that the correct data and insights allow them to stay ahead of the competition, it is the ‘how’ where Xebia’s expertise provides them a leg up. Answering critical points, such as how to turn data into insights, or how to dig out meaningful information from millions of touchpoints, is vital for the success of an organization’s data strategy.
Becoming a data-driven organization requires unlocking the data, storing it and giving everyone access to it and even involves evaluating the data maturity level on a regular basis.

Xebia puts people first. The team actively enables continuous personal and professional growth with respect, trust, responsibility, and accountability. They cultivate great ideas, innovate and actively support people to become their best versions. That’s what has helped them to grow.
Supporting the passion of exceptionally smart people forms the foundation of the organization. Xebia’s bi-weekly company-wide knowledge exchanges, innovation days, tech-rallies and training programs make knowledge flow within Xebia and beyond and contribute to exploring and achieving the full potential, individually and collectively.
The company builds long-lasting relationships with its customers and serves them on an equal level. They work on common goals and trust by showing genuine interest in the person and adding value pro-actively and consistently.
Quality without Compromise
At Xebia, quality without compromise is the mantra. Be it the work they do for the customers, the tools they all work with, the hiring process, their parties, or the office designs.
“We set the bar at 100%, because we don’t compromise.”
