Passion for data
A few years ago, the world of analytical data processing was still quite straightforward: software suites from established vendors were used for the traditional topics of data warehousing, business intelligence and reporting. Specialized vendors were on the market with high-performance database solutions for the mass data of retail companies and telecommunications providers. And for the supporting data mining and statistical analysis, there was a manageable selection of specialized software packages.
But then came topics such as Digital Transformation, Industry 4.0, Big Data, Internet of Things, Artifical Intelligence, Machine Learning and Cloud Computing – and this area experienced a new, unprecedented dynamic. Suddenly it was said: “The fast beat the slow.”, “Data is the gold of the 21st century.”, “Artificial Intelligence is democratized.”, “Everything is getting smart.”. Didn’t you also feel a diffuse pressure there to act now and immediately in order to be competitively positioned for the future?
At the same time, it was (and still is) almost impossible to get a fully informed overall picture. What is (just) hype, which promises are made, which of them are kept? Which platforms and tools, services and concepts are really required and how can they be combined in a useful way? Which statements (and predictions) of established strategy consultants with their striking glossy slides should one rely on? Which of the many enterprise architects have real practical experience to be able to foresee the consequences of their recommendations?
It is precisely in this challenging overall situation that it is important for you and your company to have a trusted and competent partner and companion at your side. Preferably someone who, on the one hand, is highly agile and already “at the forefront” today, but, on the other hand, experienced enough not to blindly follow every new trend. This combination of knowledge, skills and experience – which enables us to question everything constructively-critically, to evaluate competently and to communicate transparently – that is our passion, that is us, that is initions!
That is your question,
this is our solution
Have you already considered building a data platform or have you already started this initiative? Are you currently asking yourself whether you have chosen the right architecture and the appropriate components? Four eyes see more than two: Would you like an expert review of your current situation or your current project progress?
Your grown architecture is out-dated or needs to be upgraded to the next best release due to support and maintenance reasons? Should these systems co-exist with possible new platforms? And if so, how can such a hybrid scenario look like?
Your business and / or a corporate strategy demand new solutions. How can these be realized with state-of-the-art technologies? Which components solve which questions? And how can these approaches be integrated and operated sustainably and efficiently?
Are there decentralization tendencies and a demand for self-service in your business? What concepts for collaboration, responsibilities, processes, governance, organization and architecture are required?
Questions upon questions. You need a competent partner who can provide answers and guidance. Talk to us!
Suited for your needs
We offer our services in different formats depending on the requirements, the question and the project phase:
For all concepts and architectures, technical consulting and strategic support, we offer the service of implementation - across all areas and products.
For all implementations provided in the project, we offer you our "Hand Over" service. We thus put you in a position to reliably operate the solutions created on your own.
Depending on the desired model, we support you recurrently on a selective basis or also in the 2nd or 3rd level of support. Alternatively, we can take over the complete operation of your application at the agreed service levels.
Advisory and Supervising
Here we offer you our consulting services on strategic issues, to provide holistic understanding, derivation of "big pictures", feasibility analyses, idea generation as well as second opinions and evaluation of existing concepts. Our contact persons are mostly strategy managers, IT managers and enterprise architects. Depending on the situation, this service is provided on a selective or continuous basis to accompany the project.
Trainings and Workshops
We offer training courses for the complete range of solutions. In the context of projects, these are provided on a professional, technical or content-related basis for end users, IT operations or competence teams.
Independent of projects, we also offer standardized training courses for Microsoft Power BI. Depending on your needs, these can be tailored to your specific requirements and provided as individual workshops with your data. In addition, we conduct workshops specifically for your technical or specialist teams to convey new technologies and concepts in a compact and interactive form.
We also offer workshops specifically for your technical or specialist teams in order to convey new technologies and concepts in a compact and interactive form.
Proof of Concept
Does it make sense to introduce a particular product? Are our framework conditions suitable for it? Have we understood the sketches and functionality correctly? Proof of Concepts (POCs) pursue the goal of answering these and other questions in a short period of time in order to then make the right investment decisions based on more profound knowledge.
In a "scoping workshop" the questions are defined - what is "in scope", but also what is "out of scope". Secondary objectives, such as "we would like to gain a deeper understanding of the tool", are formulated, preconditions are worked out and the process is scheduled. The actual POC generally requires 10 days of external effort. This is followed by an evaluation of the results and a discussion of the additional knowledge gained.
Data Warehouse Cloud Migration and Modernization, Hadoop Substitution
Is the performance of traditional database systems no longer sufficient, have central components been discontinued, are costs getting out of hand, are Hadoop systems difficult to control and have not delivered what they promised? Or do you need a fundamentally new strategy while retaining existing functionalities? We clarify these questions together with you.
In doing so, we bring in-depth experience in the area of cloud migration and modernization of Big Data, in data warehouse and business intelligence solutions. Our service portfolio ranges from "lift and shift" to reengineering and defacto re-implementation.
