Project X Ltd. Approach:
Project X Ltd. clients see them as a friendly and approachable firm whose people will work with them to meet their objectives. Some of their past success has been in the areas of Telecom, Financial Services, Retail and Manufacturing where together they have worked to achieve great results.
In 2005, the founding partners combined their accumulative 30+ years of business, technical and consulting experience to form Project X ltd. Throughout their history they have cultivated their relationships with clients, growing as required to meet client needs.
In 2011, though the acquisition of the assets of BigDataLabs, Project X Ltd formed a wholly owned subsidiary Project X Labs Ltd. (www.pxlabs.ca) focused on Product Development around MicroStrategy.
At Project X Ltd, they refer to a lot of their folks as Solution Architects for a reason. The heart of what they do is drive for unique and innovative solutions to solve customers’ problems. This does not always mean living on the hairy edge of technology. Often it is about having a different way to look at a problem or working differently together.
Since before Project X Ltd’s founders started the company, one of the key things they wanted to achieve was the introduction of industry leading solutions to organizations that often would not have access to full blown solutions. This is not a new concept, Application Service Provider (ASP) solutions have been around for ages. Then came along Software as a service (SaaS). They like these ideas and have solutions that can often be tailored to meet a client’s need or just the experience of these solutions can be leveraged to catapult a client to success.
Some of their Solutions are:
“We have worked with Project X Ltd for over 4 years. Their ability to think differently in how they work with us to evolve our business has enabled them to have an insight into our business, few partners have. This relationship helps my business meet its corporate objectives all the way to the board level.” Featured Client Case Study (Telecom)
“We chose Project X Ltd not only for their deep knowledge and experience in Data Warehousing, but also for their ability to work with our corporate constraints and objectives. They helped us develop an architecture that was tailored to our complex and evolving situation. The process was very collaborative integrating well with our team. The result was an architecture that the Falconbridge team owned. Project X Ltd helped us develop the right situation for Falconbridge in a complicated environment. They clearly understood our challenges, the environment and our business.” – John van den Hoven, Senior Technology Advisor, Falconbridge Ltd.
