Customized software development

In order to maintain or increase competitive edge customized software development in many cases is a faster, more conscious choice and in the long term is even cheaper than buying off the shelf products. In addition to these advantages there are neither functional limitations nor following licence costs.

The most important step when developing a suitable customized software is the perfect understanding of business needs and finding the best technologies. The quickly advancing technology can help a lot and adequate experience and planning can lead to a solution that can perfectly meet business needs. Our company and our colleagues knowing the specifics of several areas are able to meet the challenges ensuring thus business success.

Along the software development we apply internationally recognized methodologies, in the past years mainly those agile methodologies that are characterized by flexibility. (e.g.Scrum) Our development team has outstanding experience in complex projects where Java and .Net technologies have been used.

Business Intelligence and Analytical solutions

With the appearance of the first and second generation Data Warehouses the business intelligence solutions based on data warehouses and data marts have become more and more into focus. In business value is represented by those analytical solutions that can support efficiently business analysis, planning and the preparation of decision making. Our starting point is not the technology but rather the business need and the collective thinking on how business processes and decisions can be supported more efficiently with the given technology.

All the analytical projects, business intelligence solutions and data warehouse projects are executed relying on the principles of agile development and step-by-step methodology. The planning and implementation divided into phases can be productive at an early phase, right after a few months after the project has started and this can serve as an excellent foundation for the execution of the following phases. The payback period of these projects is very short, risks are minimized and real competitive edge is guaranteed. The gap between IT and business can be bridged with self-service BI solutions that can be adapted easily to the changing needs of business areas. The implementation can start at a certain business area and then spread from here to the branches of the organization followed by other project phases.

In the planning phases of the project business and technological consultancy services are given in order to ensure that the solution is going to fit easily into the company’s business and decision making processes. When the project is implemented trainings and knowledge transfer is essential to help the integration of the new system into corporate culture and support the daily operational and decision making processes.

 

Data Quality and Data Cleansing

As the analytical solutions are spreading more and more companies are becoming aware of the importance of managing the company’s data as an asset. At the same time they are faced with the problem of having insufficient or inaccurate quality data. This problem hinders both the optimal exploitation of the data asset and the implementation of analytical solutions that support the business. Another problem can be a significant latent cost that springs from activities performed based on inaccurate information that is paid by the company even if it does not show up in the budget reports. Such activities are those that target the acquisition of missing information or those that are concerned with the correction of inaccurate, insufficient data, dealing with consequences of business decisions made on incorrect data and activities that are focusing on problems related to customer satisfaction.

Our company was the first to detect this problem in 1999 and to invest in it giving a thorough and complex solution that contains the following:

  • The detection and assessment of data quality problems
  • Shaping up data handling strategies, regulations
  • The automatic correction of the existing data and the automatic supplement for missing data
  • Real time data cleansing at the data recording or modification process solving thus for a long term data quality problems.

The outstanding advantage of our solution is that it contains a proprietary data cleansing tool and algorithms developed with an experience of 17 years and innovative, unique data validation opportunities. We find it very important that along our projects we focus on real customer values so our aim is not only to achieve adequate data quality but also to support our customers in finding several advantages.
