Our Past, Present,
and Future

We are an industry-leading software company founded in 2007 by renowned Business Objects security experts Sébastien Goiffon and Alexandre Biegala. What started as two entrepreneurs working in a basement in France quickly grew to 70 employees at offices around the world (France, UK, USA, and Canada). Despite rapid growth, the entrepreneurial spirit is still alive and we remain self-financed.

Today, we serve more than 600 customers in 30 countries and boast more than three million end-users. Our flagship product — 360Suite — provides BI professionals with innovative software solutions that enhance the power and value of SAP® BusinessObjects™. The Business Objects co-founder recently joined our board of directors.

We recognize that data fuels business in the 21st century and that organizations rely on business intelligence (BI) tools to turn raw data into useful information. Our vision is to empower BI managers to master increasingly complex environments.
