Veenendaal, 1 March 2021 – The integration of data specialist Finavista, acquired by Cegeka in May 2020, has been completed. As of March 1, Finavista will continue as Cegeka Data Solutions, in which all data-related activities of Cegeka in the Netherlands are bundled. With these activities, Cegeka is responding to the increasing demand for data-related services and solutions.
Like the Belgian organization, Cegeka Netherlands now also offers services and solutions in the field of data, applications and infrastructure, the IT trinity for every company. It is the ambition of Cegeka Data Solutions to be one of the top 5 data specialists in the Netherlands by 2025. In time, the portfolio must also become available in the other countries in which Cegeka is active.
Marcel Schenk, director of Cegeka Data Solutions: “We see that more and more organizations want to improve their predictive capacity in order to be able to anticipate better. They invest in a data-driven approach and the required IT infrastructure. In 2020, for example, € 1.6 billion will be invested in AI solutions in the Netherlands. By 2025, that investment will have doubled (source: ING Sector Research). We therefore expect that the data-related activities within Cegeka will grow the fastest.”
Cegeka Data Solutions offers an extensive data-oriented portfolio for a wide range of organizations from medium-sized organizations to enterprises. The portfolio consists of services and solutions in the field of data engineering (data in the right place), data governance (data in order), business intelligence (management based on data) and data science (improving with data). The integration of Finavista brings 18 years of experience in data quality, data governance and data migration, particularly at financial institutions and in the distribution sector. This in-depth experience can now also be deployed within other focus sectors of Cegeka: healthcare and government.
Marcel Schenk: “Companies usually know broadly what data they need, but getting the details clear is not easy. However, details are essential: the data must be in order to serve as the basis for, for example, business intelligence and artificial intelligence. When the right data are available and in order, the way is open for the use of business intelligence and data science techniques. For example, you can use smart algorithms to sharply identify a change in customer needs or to predict when extra capacity is required in a process.”
Cegeka Data Solutions provides solutions across the board, from unlocking and validating data to building data warehouses, the implementation of management dashboards and artificial intelligence. Together with the Cegeka divisions Applications, Cloud Enablement, Cyber Security and Digital Workplace, Data Solutions serves customers end-to-end in their development towards a data-driven organization.
Cegeka Data Solutions uses its own approach and method with independent quality assurance to determine whether standards and values are appropriately deployed. This approach has more than proven itself in practice at Finavista. The company has the necessary certifications for quality assurance. Cegeka is also a Microsoft Gold Partner for Data Analytics.
