Where They Were: The Challenge / Opportunity

Multiple companies representing islands of information with no way of sharing or creating synergy.

Who Was Involved

We brought together premier business intelligence providers, global sales and marketing teams, CRM vendors and information technology providers.

The image shows the companies we worked with to intergrate their services into an internal information infrastructure for global enterprises. Companies from left to right - Dun and Bradstreet, Harte Hanks, Hoovers Inc, Fortune and One Source
We worked interdependently with each of these companies to integrate their services into an internal information infrastructure for global enterprises. With the assistance of some creative and helpful people we "cracked the codes". We conceived a solution that connected and featured information from disparate sources.

What We Did

Worked interdependently with premier business intelligence providers to integrate their services into an internal information infrastructure. Conceived a technology solution that aggregates, organizes and connects information from multiple sources. Created a mobile app for global accessibility.

What Were the Results

Users were able to access and leverage aggregated information. Introductions and cross-platform collaboration led to D&B acquisitions of Hoovers and OneSource
