All Your BI was truly an asset for APM terminals Maasvlakte almost since its inception about 5 years ago. Their knowledge within Business Intelligence is unique. Not only did he put the first Data warehouse solution in a large scale terminal operation, but continuously optimized it over the years which had a direct positive impact on terminal operations. In doing so, aside from demonstrating technical knowledge, they demonstrated excellent cross functional skills which are key to driving integration in any automated facility. Their ability to understand complex problems quickly, break it into small issues, develop a robust action plan and implement it distinguishes him from others in the Business Intelligence field. This combined with managerial ability and soft skills like collaboration, balancing speed and perfection as well as cross cultural skills gives them the edge that any company needs for smooth deployment of innovation.

In simple words, All Your BI is not only is good at innovation, but has the unique ability to connect strategy and technology, which is key for driving operational performance in heavy infrastructure industries.
