Data in the form of facts and figures play a pivotal role in business decisions at every level in an organization. However, the increasing amount of data and constantly evolving parameters are bringing in their own set of challenges to the organizations. In order to mitigate these roadblocks, organizations are adopting business intelligence systems to aid them in the collection, processing and visualization of data for informed decisions. On the other hand, businesses are struggling to harness the full potential of BI as they lack the required knowledge, specific skill sets and necessary resources. This is where Poland-based summ-it, a fast-growing company with extensive knowledge in BI, steps in to guide and support customers to seamlessly deploy BI and derive complete business and operational benefits.
Founded in 2011, summ-it initially focused on offering services in database management, which included audits, performance and tuning, implementations and architecture of the database engine. As a reliable Microsoft partner since 2012, the company today is dedicated to creating fully customized BI solutions from scratch on the Microsoft data platform, which can be used by organizations for making informed business decisions.
“Our subject matter experts invest a great amount of time in analyzing the customer’s business environment, understand their pain points and objectives, and subsequently crafts solutions that are scalable and sustainable according to their requirements,” begins Wojciech Wencel, CEO of summ-it. The company offers end-to-end data management services to ensure that the BI system is loaded with appropriate client data. Additionally, the company delivers ETL or ELT services where it copies customer-specific data from the source to the BI system.

With a highly competent team of experts, summ-it follows an agile approach to ensure that clients deploy and implement the BI solutions in a manner that provides the maximum value.
When it comes to the maintenance and support of database systems, summ-it follows ITIL methodology to understand their client’s practices better and optimize their systems management process accordingly. summ-it uses Microsoft’s best practices in project implementation and while configuring the operating and database systems. “Our fully customized solutions developed on the Microsoft data platform includes SQL Server, Analysis Services and Power BI, and are offered on-premise as well as on public cloud especially on MS Azure and AWS,” explains Wojciech. “We are also partnered with Orange Business Services, which allows us to deliver our solutions on Orange’s Flexible Engine,” he adds. Focused on business analysis followed by PMBOK and BABOK guides and standards, summ-it ensures that all essential business needs are implemented in the BI system.
summ-it’s solutions have proven to be successful time and again, which is why notable companies from across the globe such as Bank Millenium, Bergerat Monnoyeur, AXA insurance, Pepco and Technicolor, to name a few, are utilizing the company’s customized offerings. Wojciech recalls the case of a production company who approached summ-it regarding their isolated systems that hindered the process of data collection and required a single source of truth in the organization. summ-it’s expert team analyzed the company’s business needs and their expectations related to the management dashboard and created a database warehouse in the public cloud that gathered data from the different sources. The team then designed a customized solution combining data science techniques, data mining and machine language to perform data quality management, ensured that the information is correlated, and calculated the KPIs to understand the value that the data brings to the client. Besides, summ-it’s solution generated custom reports in the Power BI platform with the whole process delivered in the cloud and could cater to the different business units in the organization.
According to Wojciech, summ-it’s partnerships with Microsoft and Oracle have been instrumental in providing their clients with the best services and developing world-class solutions. Continuing on its innovation streak, summ-it is en route to specializing in data science and big data, especially in predictive and preemptive analytics. As a part of their geographical expansion, summ-it has recently opened its office in London and begun operations in the UK market.
