In 2001, Logic Point, a Digital Foundations Company, started to foster and provide quality SAP resources to SAP America in the Utilities space. While it sourced exceptional talent to solve industry challenges through SAP solutions, the company noticed that a key cause of its client’s challenges was the quality of their data. As most companies installed and upgraded their ERP, there were little to no control over data quality.
In 2018, Logic Point decided to re-focus on becoming a Digital Foundation Company by focusing on Data and Digital Advisory setting up a data practice to solve data quality challenges as well as engaging industry veterans to champion the fundamentals to successful transformation.
“We build digital foundations for industrial companies, enabling successful transformations through innovative data consulting and advisory.”
Below are the highlights of the interview conducted between Insights Success and Logic Point:
