realXdata Opens Research & Development Center In Barcelona
realXdata GmbH, which specializes in real estate portfolio and market analyses, has opened its own research and development center in Barcelona. The initial focus of the R&D team is on software design, product development in the area of AI-supported analysis solutions and the further development of smart data-based real estate and transaction databases.
Reasons for choosing Barcelona as an additional location to the already existing headquarters in Berlin, are the excellent supply of specialists and the well-developed network of programmers, AI experts and data specialists. In addition, there are very good contacts to the University research institutions available.
The R&D team is led by Iñaki Merino, CTO at realXdata. As Senior IT Manager, Merino was previously responsible for the entire software development and implementation at the Spanish state postal service Correos. Prior to that, he developed software solutions for the banking and insurance sectors at Exis-IT and Ibermática. Senior Data Scientist of realXdata is Javier Tarragona Galles, who joined realXdata from Accenture Spain. He was most recently responsible for the development of data-based forecasting and visualization models for the chemical and aviation industries.
The new location is the first step in the planned strategic internationalization of the company, which was named one of the 100 most innovative start-ups in Germany in November 2018.
Dr. Titus Albrecht, founder and managing director of realXdata: “With our own realXdata R&D center, we will continue to expand our technological lead and bring new digital solutions for the real estate sector to market maturity. Barcelona has become one of the most attractive cities for recruiting IT specialists in Europe. With Iñaki Merino and Javier Tarragona Galles, we are already excellently networked in the Spanish IT and developer scene and in the research landscape”.
