Context Intelligence is the ability to combine structured and unstructured data to generate actionable insights and for better-informed decision-making.

Today, companies base 95% of their decisions on only 20% of their available data; the remaining 80% is left untouched.

Squirro was the first Swiss company, along with six other Leading Financial Innovators selected for FinTech Innovation Lab London. The Lab, was launched by Accenture in 2012, is a collaboration between with leading financial institutions such as Barclays, Deutsche Bank, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley.

Furthermore, Squirro’s client portfolio includes worldwide companies like ABB, the International Engineering Consortium, Swisscom, Experteer and The Vanella Group. 

Acumen BI’s aim is to deliver fast, simple, effective business intelligence. They know the hallmarks of successful BI programs and apply that knowledge to every project they undertake.

The partnership between Squirro and Acumen BI was driven by Master Reseller Sovereign Merchant and will address clients’ growing necessity of combining, analysing and interpreting structured and unstructured information in a unique and compelling way.

Speaking about the new partnership Daniel Gargiulo, QlikView Practice Lead at Acumen BI said: “With the significant growth in unstructured data we are confident Squirro will add significant value to New Zealand business.
