Yuma welcomes B12: delivering advanced AI to the Benelux


Yuma and B12 Consulting (‘B12’), a leader in Belgium in artificial intelligence (AI) and data, join forces. With the integration of B12 in Yuma, the group will be able to further empower clients’ entire digital transformation. Headquartered in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), B12 brings some of the Benelux’ most advanced expertise in harnessing data and AI to drive innovation and digital improvements for businesses across diverse sectors.


Yuma offers solutions that cover the entire digital value chain, from strategy and ideation to execution and operation. The inclusion of B12 marks a significant milestone in Yuma’s journey, further strengthening its capabilities in AI-driven strategies and data analytics.


Pascal Laffineur, CEO of Yuma, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “At Yuma, we are committed to revolutionizing digital transformation through collaboration and innovation. When we researched the Benelux AI market, B12 came out on top in terms of technical skills and ability to turn AI into robust, mature solutions – beyond the hype. The work they did to improve the development of mRNA vaccines or to pro-actively monitor the Brussels tram infrastructure are just two examples of this. As such, we are extremely proud that they decided to join Yuma, where they will find peers in UI/UX, architecture, software development and managed services. B12’s offering and track-record with more than 400 successful projects in data and AI aligns perfectly with our vision of empowering organizations to thrive in the digital age. Together, we can deliver the most advanced solutions that drive sustainable growth and competitive advantage for our clients. We are looking forward to welcoming the 45 AI experts of B12 into Yuma and together bring an unrivalled level of competence to our clients.”

With our collective strengths we can provide tailored solutions that address complex challenges faced by businesses today. This collaboration underscores our commitment to applying AI to drive tangible value and meaningful impact for our clients, and use it as a core technology rather than a toy box to experiment with”.
