We believe that data driven decision making and good data governance is a main priority to stay competitive and navigate in an increasingly complex business context. Consistently good decision making requires a stable and healthy business intelligence (BI) architecture, built on structured solutions that are easy to understand and maintain.
Our philosophy is that business intelligence (BI) and business processes goes together, why we put great honor in understanding the business- and system processes generating the data, as well as helping customers interpreting the output and the key assumptions made to generate the reports.
We also believe that to achieve the best BI proces and integration it is necessary to create a good match between our consultants and customers, and to ensure this, we have entered a strategic partnership with Sylvest+. With a human resource approach, we bring the right personalities to the table and deliver competent business intelligence ressources for longer or shorter periods of time. Sylvest+ helps throughout the process – we listen to our customers’ needs and solution requirements.
