OUR ORIGINS

A French precursor of business information, Ellisphere has a century-old expertise in the collection and management of BtoB data in France and internationally. It accompanies the evolution of BtoB information professions with both companies and public authorities.

In 2014, it took the name of Ellisphere, the final step of a regained autonomy and of a new dynamic centered on BtoB information and brought about by an ever-changing economic and regulatory context. Since 2019, Ellisphere has been a shareholder: Bpifrance, Tikehau Capital and Andera Partners.

6 poles of excellence to accompany you

The data pole of Ellisphere is responsible for collecting, analysing and permanently enriching the information in the data repository.

It is fed by public but also private sources (investigations, media, partnerships, communities of remitters). Specialized teams collect and qualify information such as annual accounts, financial links, judgments and payment experiences.

These data are subject to rigorous cross-checking to be rectified and valued in an editorial consistency allowing to have a rich and reliable multi-sourced documentary fonds for the creation of customer solutions.

Data Science Pole

The data science team in Ellisphere is responsible for transforming and analysing data, for example through machine learning algorithms, and then helping and accelerating decision-making.

As a result of the increase in the number of data available within companies, the role of data science is becoming more and more indispensable.Indeed, raw data remains poorly structured and therefore difficult to use without human intervention.
