The Cloud Journey

Knowledge4You was formed in 1999 to provide consulting services for
cloud application development and data warehousing projects.

Smart, Agile, Adaptable, Scalable

Our first clients included the Government of OntarioToronto District School Board, the Canadian Standards Association, and Spectrum Investments. As the company continued to grow, we were able to attract other well-known companies such us CIBCHewlett-Packard,University of Toronto and Intria Items. These clients looked to us to transform their data into knowledge.

With our wealth of experience in large and complex data warehousing projects, we have brought to each of our engagements a data-centric approach. We focus on transforming the information our customers will need to facilitate their most important decision making processes, rather than build applications that simply automate a specific process.

We Recognize

We recognize that we must deliver our solutions cost effectively. Wherever possible, we use industry standard tools however when it came to OLAP technology, we quickly discovered that many of the vendors of these technologies had introduced pricing models that were out of line with the budgets our customers had for such products. Considering our data-centric approach, we know the tools we employ to transform data into knowledge are critical to our success.

We Believe

We believe the combination of our software development experience, our data-centric approach, and our cost effective products is a compelling reason for you to choose Knowledge4You as a solution provider of choice, whenever you need to turn data into knowledge.

We Work

We took the strategic decision to develop our own OLAP engine, OLAP4you. This decision has allowed us to offer to our customers very cost effective products, since we are not relying on third parties for this key foundation to our solutions.

We then added Survey4You, era4You and WebHarvest4You to our OLAP engine. These products are for web-based surveying, enterprise reporting and analysis, and web analytics respectively. Each grew out of meeting a specific customer requirement and wherever possible, we reused and recycled code components.
