Casper Thomsen gives us an inside look at IT consulting firm Novataris Inc.
Tell us about your organization and how its work impacts the Dallas Region.
Novataris is a small local IT consulting firm specializing in information management solutions. We are Microsoft gold partners on data analytics, and we have helped numerous large and small companies utilize their data better to gain competitive advantages in their markets by staying one step ahead with up-to-date insights.
We love being in Dallas because of the huge market potential and the rapid growth. The central location within the U.S. of course is a big plus as well as the excellent recruitment opportunities that Dallas offers due to the many technical educational institutions, widely recognized for academic excellence.
How does your company help other businesses become more effective through digital solutions?
We help companies make better decisions through data. In a fast-paced business climate, you can’t afford to act upon outdated or incorrect data. You must take control of the situation and ensure that you have the best possible information to stay ahead of the competition. Our IM specialists stand out not just because we build rock-solid data warehouses and user-friendly, informative and interactive reports, but because they understand IT and help you solve the tough issues where others fall short. Problems such as poor data quality, dealing with unstructured data including social feeds or Excel files, securing data in the cloud, utilizing predictive analytics, avoiding duplication of data and long complex data processes. We help make sure that everyone who needs the data has exactly what they need when they need it. We get the job done on time and within budget.
For Novataris, a great IT solution is not only about the technology, but also about the people behind it. This means that we have a holistic focus on IT where customer-needs, technology and business should come together in one integrated solution. We understand how to unite specific needs with the right technology in customized solutions.
What differentiates Novataris from other companies in your industry?
Open communication, business-understanding and world-class IT competencies is what makes us stand out from the rest. We take responsibility to deliver in accordance with your needs and requirements, within budget and without cutting corners. We bridge the gap between business and IT, and get things done.
We even put tangible guarantees behind our statements. I don’t know of any other IT consultants out there than can make these same promises:
What do you enjoy most about doing business in Dallas?
I love the diverse background of professionals I get to work with both in our own field and in the clients. The different perspectives they bring that can provide unique and creative solutions to challenges.
Dallas is a fast-paced business community with lots of growth and potential for new companies to become leaders on the national and international stage. We love being able to help companies grow and watch the amazing results when innovative solutions drive efficiency and better results.
Why did you decide to become a DRC member?
The DRC provides us with a lot of insights to current activities in the business community in Dallas and provides access to getting involved. We joined the Talent Pipeline Council soon after joining the DRC to take an active role in impacting and improving education in Texas. Through that work, we have been exposed to several wonderful non-profit organizations in Dallas, such as Teaching Trust and Educate Texas, that we would like to get more involved with.
How has your business changed in the last five years?
If you look at the progress on cloud technologies, the features available and the cost reduction from cloud services it is amazing. You can literally have a good idea and with a few dollars have all the services to try it out. If it works, the cloud can scale seamlessly with your business and you pay for what you use. If the idea doesn’t work, well then there is no expensive licenses or hardware that you must pay for. It is truly an enabler of fast digital growth. A business that can harness this for their markets have great potential.
