Paris, September, 2018 - Denodo Technologies, the independent leader in Data Virtualization, and Gfi Informatique, a major player in value-added IT services and software in Europe today announced that they have formed a partnership to deliver value added solutions using Data Virtualization to customers throughout EMEA region. Gfi Informatique will resell the Denodo Data Virtualization Platform as part of their business solutions and will provide consulting and implementation services to customers.
Having an experience of over 30 years, Gfi Informatique's model is geared towards enabling large-scale transformation projects as clients restructure their organization for the needs of digital transformation.
This approach is built on four fundamental areas of expertise: technological expertise spanning all market technologies, services expertise to provide consistent, end-to-end solutions, process expertise for predictive and agile industrial operations and transformation expertise, covering governance of transformation, alignment with new uses of organizations, and technological innovation as a driver of efficiency.
Gfi Informatique chose to partner with Denodo Technologies because of its broad approach to Data Virtualization in terms of key capabilities like connectivity, performance and data services publishing. Denodo provides diverse connectivity to traditional data sources like databases, legacy systems and new sources like big data, web, and cloud. It also allows the development and delivery of agile data services to multiple consumers in different formats including RESTful linked data services. These capabilities will enable Gfi Informatique to broaden their capabilities to help their customers to better manage their Enterprise Information assets.
“At Gfi, we are committed to meeting our customers’ needs and do so by providing a wide range of innovative IT solutions,” says Philippe Debavelaere, head of TME Sector. “By providing a breadth of data integration capabilities and by addressing a broad range of use cases, Denodo aligns with our business strategy and core value propositions. “
