Improve your business performance and workflow, connect with your customers, control your supply chain, manage data your way, drive your decision making with database-derived business intelligence.

Most IT projects follow a similar pattern:

  1. the business users talk to the business analyst.
  2. the business analyst talks to the IT architect.
  3. the architect relays information to the designers and developers.

With all those links in the chain at every stage of the project, it’s no surprise that IT projects are costly and still run over time and over budget.

DataKraft changes that pattern – significantly.

With DataKraft, the solution can be built by a business analyst – with no need for coding or developers. The prototype can be built by the analyst, in close contact with the user. The result? A solution that closely matches the requirements of the user – often delivering more than the user originally expected! No compromises. No delays. And, if the business process changes, there is no need to go back to a developer team. DataKraft solutions are built and changed by configuration, so there is no code!

Sounds too good to be true?

Before Dalkia and Violia moved to an organisation wide ERP, DataKraft had implemented three business solutions using DataKraft Studio software ; analyzing our needs and designing them was so fast and efficient; we were able to focus on the essentials – our business needs – and didn’t have any overheads dealing with the technical code. Our DataKraft systems were powerful yet so easy to use at the same time… a small revolution for professionals like us!
