Doug Whiting, Partner Global SAP Practice, DXC

At Axxiome, we have been successfully reselling several Datavard products to our customers, with the benefit of complementing and optimizing data transformation. In terms of implementation, I had the chance to work with very skilled Datavard consultants, committed to ensure customer success

Marc Triginer, Solution Architect, Axxiome

At Datavard, technical support is very direct and personal. Instead of going through different levels of support, we always had direct contact with the person responsible. We never had to wait more than 24 hours for an answer and our expectations have always been met. The cooperation was extremely satisfactory.

Dr. Ullrich Kessler, Senior IT Project Manager, Shell

This is our first project with Datavard, and it will certainly not be the last. I have full confidence in the Datavard tools and team. They have now become an internal part of the EPI-USE finance and logistics practice and will plan to have many more projects with us.

I was most impressed by Datavard’s FitnessTest. The solution offers a detailed analysis of your system data, saving us time and simplifies the preparation of archiving and data cleansing processes. With the help of the FitnessTest, we were able to reduce our data volume by up to 20%.

We were able to archive 120 of the largest BW objects with Datavard OutBoard™ and achieved a compression rate of 91% of archived data. We were impressed by the results.
