Led by Cabigon, SNAP has made bold moves in recent years to forward its digital transformation, launching notable projects such as a workflow management system, data warehousing and management, and SNAP-specific artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning models. The company’s in-house data science upskilling program has already produced 9 citizen data scientists and expects 15 more from an upcoming batch.
