Building on a strong history to create a brighter future.

Although our name is new, our purpose isn’t. Empowering people to achieve their full potential is in our DNA. Our approach is founded on deep-rooted values and a mindset established over 15 years ago by our founders.
We inherited our values and experience from our founders – Xebia Group and GoDataDriven – two organizations working on the bleeding-edge of IT consultancy for years.

As an international network of passionate technologists and pioneering craftsmen, they provide cutting-edge tools, training and consulting services that make businesses work better, smarter, and faster.

We’ve been around long enough to notice something was missing.

Speed of innovation demands clever insights and decisiveness.

In our daily practice, we experience an enormous demand for highly-skilled professionals with capabilities far above “high-potential.” Until now, there wasn’t a complete program that bridged that gap.

Xccelerated fosters the data professional’s potential and transforms top-class starters into experienced consultants. We ensure high-quality, experienced talent is available to drive the most innovative enterprises forward.
