At Lidl Analytics we pursue a global mission: Generating business value through data-driven decision support.

Therefore, we combine the expertise of our stakeholders with Analytics competencies, developing algorithms and statistical models for recognizing complex patterns in Big Data. To leverage the full potential of Analytics throughout the company, we act as a global Analytics network across all Lidl countries.

Together we accelerate Lidl's journey towards a data-driven company

To be as close to the business as possible, we build teams in all our country divisions and some of our business units to enhance business processes through analytical and data solutions worldwide. You will shape the analytics agenda of one of our country divisions, a business unit or realize cross-functional projects at our international headquarters.

Rapid and iterative prototyping is key to our project work

We develop initial "proof-of-concept" solutions along the entire value chain. Tested and approved data models will be later industrialized in close collaboration with our internal IT provider. Being adapted to our stakeholders’ needs, our prototypes are designed to convince. For example, we have introduced a machine learning model that detects out of stock situations in stores by searching for anomalies in sales data. Given the insights of this data solution, we can improve product availability for our customers and make a decisive effort against food waste - One of many success stories!

Tools Analytics

Hands-on solutions and cutting-edge technologies combined

As project teams, we always want to have the right tools at hand. Combining Lidl’s hands-on mentality with an innovative spirit, our toolkit ranges from pragmatic approaches to the latest machine learning algorithms.
Equally, our Analytics units operate with a central data platform based on highly scalable cloud technologies, leveraging state-of-the-art services and toolkits.
