In this Partners Ecosystem Digital Summit segment, which took place on April 20, 2023, Aaron Back, Chief Content Officer and Founding Analyst, chats with Ardjan Baan, CEO of Vanenburg, about how it creates value for its customers by turning its data into intelligence.
00:34 – Vanenburg has a rich history with 40 years of experience in Enterprise IT Modernization. “We are building world-class enterprise solutions, ” said Ardjan. “Solutions for manufacturing, logistics, retail, and wholesale industries [focused on] cloud-native technology.” These solutions are built with a strong partnership with Google Cloud.
02:37 – Artificial intelligence (AI) is a very hot topic today, according to Ardjan, but “it’s only relevant in the context of Enterprise IT.” Further, AI is only as good as the quality of the data. This is where the strong partnership between Vanenburg and Google Cloud comes into play which allows Vanenburg to “turn data into intelligence.”
06:19 – There continues to be a lot of conversation about low-code/no-code, and Ardjan framed it perfectly. “I think if you link the core assets of intelligence and data-driven decisions with the unique ability to quickly create enterprise applications, which are answering the unique needs of the customer, this is where we can add value with our [application development accelerator] called Rappit.”
09:28 – Ardjan outlined how the Rappit solution allows companies to keep their technology engineering as the foundation, and build on that with business-led innovation and prototyping to rapidly create complex customization in a faster way.
11:43 – Vanenburg has a large manufacturing customer that chose SAP as its core foundational technology, which had lacked the productivity tools and developers. Vanenburg worked with this customer to link its data, manufacturing, HR, and quality claims and tied that back to its engineering design work. This not only improved the quality of its product but the customer realized a 10x improvement in savings of running its business and a lower total cost of ownership.
Additionally, this helped the customer “improve its reputation of having a qualitative brand in the market of having insurance and fewer warranty claims.”
