How long has your business provided services for the oil & gas sector?
As a specialist Business Intelligence consulting firm providing BI services to customers in 15 vertical industries and across several countries in Europe and Middle East, ClearPeaks has been providing award-winning services for the oil & gas sector for the past 6 years.
Where are you located within the Middle East / GCC region –How important is this part of the world to your overall business?
We are present in the UAE since 2011. We have recently expanded our Dubai office and have opened a new office located in Abu Dhabi in order to provide the level of presence needed to support the growing demand in the region. This ensures we are fully enabled in the Middle East to provide top quality services and solutions to our customers. Although we have a relevant presence in UK and Central Europe, the Middle East is of strategic importance for us, as data insight is now a must for all companies, given the current economic landscape. And we are positioned to support our customers in this journey.
What is the competitive advantage your business has over others providing similar services to the oil & gas industry?
Our outstanding references in the sector. Our most recent project has been awarded the Finalist Award at Oracle OpenWorld 2016 in the Big Data and Analytics category and the Energy Development Of The Year at the ICT Innovation Awards 2016.
Our functional knowledge, from Gas Production to Shipping and the other relevant business processes. We speak business to the Business Users and technical to the IT staff, bringing with us the Oil & Gas BI best practices as added value.
Our high-value working model, where the right mix of on-site presence and remote development capabilities – guaranteed by our BI Excellence Centre in our Barcelona HQ in Spain – provides the customer with the highest value for their money.
Have you got any major launches coming up in the next year?
From an offering perspective, we are very excited to announce our latest service line, Mobile BI Services, offering our customers both Native and Hybrid customised BI applications, specifically focused at Executive Management users. When it comes to Mobile BI applications, simplicity and small details go a long way in ensuring absolute management satisfaction.
With our new Mobile BI Services, we are addressing the increasing demand in the market to have access to real-time Business Intelligence data on mobile devices in order for top management to make business critical decisions anytime and anywhere, a key factor to success in any Business Intelligence Strategy.
From a project perspective, we will deliver two major Enterprise Business Analytics platforms in the UAE within the next 6 months, both for semi-governmental entities, and we expect more for next year.
What are you most excited about for the coming year, in terms of your business outlook?
Besides expanding our business in the Middle East region, we always like to go beyond established consultancy practice standards and guide our existing and new customers all the way through exciting innovation projects with the focus on Mobile BI, Predictive Analytics and Big Data.
