Our Past, Present,
and Future

We are an industry-leading software company founded in 2007 by two renowned BI experts, Sébastien Goiffon and Alexandre Biegala. What started with two entrepreneurs in France quickly grew to 70 employees in offices all over the world (France, UK, USA, and Canada). Despite rapid growth, the entrepreneurial spirit within the company is still very much alive. The Business Objects Co-Founder is also on our board of directors.

Today, we serve more than 600 customers from around the world to help organizations solve their BI challenges. Our flagship product — 360Suite — provides BI professionals with innovative software solutions that enhance the power and value of SAP BusinessObjects. As of recently, we have now broadened our offerings and have entered into the multi-BI market with the acquisition of Kinesis-CI; software that provides a testing framework solution for Tableau.

We recognize that data fuels business in the 21st century and that organizations need to ensure data trust in order to make the right decisions. Our vision is to empower BI leaders to release the true potential of their Data Analytics landscape.
