About Us

What we do

We believe data is one of the greatest assets most businesses possess.  You need to manage data as carefully as you manage your other business assets so that it delivers its potential value to your business.


We help our clients maximise their investment in Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence using the Data Vault 2.0™ method. The method provides a framework for designing, developing and operating a data service that meets the needs of today’s business. We work with clients throughout the life-cycle of projects from strategic alignment, business case development, through design, implementation and ongoing operational support.


Our approach builds on the work of American Data Warehouse guru Dan Lindstedt. His tried and tested techniques underpin our work.

Why we think we’re different

Like most people, we like to think we’re a bit different.  We are a consultancy specialising in delivering data warehouse solutions – but our passion is solving business problems.  We believe that to achieve exceptional results, projects must remain focused on business goals.


Our reputation is important to us and our clients prefer the tailored and personalised service that a boutique consultancy can provide.

I was recruited directly from my MSc and immediately opened up opportunities for me to grow my business and IT knowledge on a sharp learning curve, which I thrived upon. He provided solid guidance and good critical feedback on all aspects of my work, which enabled me to progress my career a lot faster than I could have ever imagined possible.
