Caserta is a data and analytics consulting firm that helps business and IT leaders transform their organizations by and through their data. Dedication to solving clients’ toughest data challenges with the fastest time-to-value is a hallmark of the firm.
Caserta was founded by Joe Caserta in 2001 with the mission of solving tough data challenges and helping organizations achieve their business goals through data and analytics. Over a span of nearly two decades, Caserta progressed naturally and quite seamlessly from transaction systems to dimensional data warehousing, big data analytics, and innovative and advanced data analytics applications.
Today, the company is fully invested in all of these paradigms and has assembled a stellar team of strategists and technologists who perpetually push the existing status quo to take data intelligence to the next level.
About the Founder
Joe Caserta was born and raised in NYC. His education in Database Application Development and Design took place at Columbia University in New York. He has about 30 years of experience creating data solutions. Joe started off in 1986 trying to get data out of transaction systems, and in 1996, discovered dimensional data modelling and data warehousing. In 2001, Joe founded his own company to work in the area of data warehousing, business intelligence and data analytics. In 2004, he co-authored “The Data Warehouse ETL Toolkit”, an industry bestseller which went on to become the standard for preparing data integration for analytics. In 2009, Joe discovered “big data” and modern data engineering technologies.
Over three decades, he progressed from transaction systems to dimensional data warehousing to big data analytics to innovative and advanced data analytics applications. These transitions were each natural progressions that made a lot of sense to him.
Highly Flexible to Adopt Technological Advancements
Team Caserta always keeps a watch on changing industry needs. They know from experience that as new technologies enter the market, older ones either get updated or become obsolete. Despite this constant state of flux and disruption, one challenge remains constant: the evolution gap between people and technology.
“At Caserta, we already are change agents in the data and analytics industry who bring innovative solutions to our clients in order to transform their businesses. The next step in this industry is teaching people how to embrace this change, even though they inherently resist it. Getting people to change the way they think vis-à-vis technology will usher change in the data and analytics industry.” – Team Caserta.
According to Joe, “I can address the people part of the industry and encourage them to adopt change. It’s a far bigger challenge than simply updating and changing technology, but I think it is one of the most important challenges facing the industry today whose resolution will bring about the biggest change.”
“We combine strategy, technology and data science to help enterprises accelerate the pace of that growth and solve their most complex data challenges with custom-designed solutions that incorporate both established and emerging technologies with the fastest time-to-value,” Joe added.

According to Joe, “Every engagement here at Caserta requires us to think creatively and to come up with solutions to difficult challenges, both as individuals and as a team. That’s what makes this work incredibly exciting: coming up with a creative solution that no one else has thought of before is exhilarating.”

Now, a new analysis, report, or data source only takes days or a week to get plugged in, instead of several months.” – CIO, Fitness Enterprise
