Delpride launches BI consulting division


Sydney-based data warehousing services provider, Delpride, has launched a consulting division targeting large enterprises with solutions to get the most of their existing business intelligence.

Known as GT Consulting, Delpride's new division will target organisations which have previously deployed their preferred reporting and data manipulation BI solutions but have been unable to go beyond creating silos of data rich information which can add value to the business and create, fast and accurate reports.

'The standard reply to business from most solutions vendors is to standardise on one product and all their problems will go away.  Our vision sees the customer using their existing investment in technology and allowing us to recommend and build a middleware type of solution," says Geoff Peach, managing director, Delpride. "The approach is to look at the technologies in a place and get them to talk to each other.

'GT Consulting will provide organisations with a technology agnostic product offering and a suite of services that do not necessarily have to culminate in a data warehouse environment.'

Delpride's new GT Consulting division is meant to complement Delpride's Data Warehousing Services (Australia) (DWSA) business which designs, builds and supports data warehouse projects.
'Through GT Consulting, as we continue to expand our experience in bringing together disparate data sources and reporting requirements, we believe the best solutions in the industry will be a combination of a range of technologies rather than convincing the market that any single solution will meet all their needs for reporting and Business Intelligence,' says Peach.
GT Consulting will charge fees based on the scale and type of work performed and also offer fixed price, success fee-based service contracts.

'With GT Consulting, we believe we can prove that Australian IT companies can offer more competitively priced quality solutions than any offshore competitor," says Peach.

GT Consulting will initially employ five consultants based in Sydney and Melbourne. Delpride currently employs 22 staff, a number that Peach says he is hoping will increase over the coming 12 months.

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).
