Braincube was founded in 2007 by three French engineers who wanted to help manufacturers use their data to improve upon their performance. They uncovered an algorithm that could analyze and prioritize thousands of parameters and data points to revolutionize the way people in industry worked, all within minutes.
The Braincube founders Laurent Laporte (President and CEO), Hélène Olphe-Galliard (COO), and Sylvain Rubat du Mérac (CTO) have continued to evolve the Braincube suite to help customers reimagine their digital transformation.
