A Passion for the Power of Data
A passion for the power of data anchors over 20 years worldwide experience in managing all aspect of utility data, through every phase of pre, in-process and post ERP implementation. We understand data but more importantly we understand our customers, and their unique requirements and hence provide processes/procedures that are tailored based on their needs and resources, or lack there of.
Our talent lies in transforming data in the most cost effective and minimalistic manner and to that effect we insist on engaging and educating, where possible, clients early on and throughout the data lifecycle and utilizing client’s existing/procured E-T-L software. Our goal is to empower clients to understand and take ownership of their own data.
Our team members deliver expert migration and integration services for SAP IS-U, CR&B, CCS data implementation. We serve an elite portfolio of UTILITIES companies in the ENERGY sector, as well as a broad spectrum of other consumer service industries who share significant ERP or CRM data requirements.
Our years of experience helps us play any and all roles, at any and all stages of the lifecycle, ranging from advisory/leadership to assisting business users in identifying and ensuring key data pieces are converted over to rolling up our sleeves with, or as, the technical team during the entire migration process (E-T-L) and once brought over we ensure all data related loose ends are completed and finally, once settled, we help define and build data profiles/monitoring dashboards.
