New consolidated ProData Consult

Søren Rode, CEO.

ProData Consult and Raft Consulting merged on 1 January 2016. With this merger, we’ve consolidated our position as Denmark’s largest consultancy in our segment, which gives us an even better platform for serving our clients.

The merger of the two companies has been challenging, but also interesting and intense. We’re pleased and proud that we haven’t suffered from churn in connection with the merger – either in relation to clients or consultants – and I would like to thank all of our valued clients for your patience in connection with the transformation into ProData Consult.

We will use the energy and resources the merger and higher volume are giving us to optimize and improve our service to new and existing clients. We’ve taken our business to the next level:  in addition to our generic IT competencies, which have now become even stronger, we now also have in-house business consultants with a deep knowledge of the financial sector in particular, in addition to telecommunications, energy and transportation.
At the same time, the merger has given us a stronger foothold on the Swedish market, where we now have divisions in both Malmö and Stockholm. Our presence in Sweden now has a really substantial volume, which means that we are fully equipped to service our clients no matter where they are located in Scandinavia.

The theme of this issue of Best Practice is knowledge sharing. Among other things, you can read about how Energinet.dk tackled a critical, high-profile project in order to future-proof a crucial link in Denmark’s critical infrastructure. And to give you a different angle on the same story, this issue also features an interview with the ProData consultant who successfully led the project and made a big difference for the client.  It’s something we see every day. And it’s what we live and breathe for. 

I hope you can use the knowledge we share in this issue.
