BI Builders is excited to announce its expansion into the US Market, with an office in New York. Leading the business unit is VP Business Development, Henning Hummervoll.
BI Builders has had remarkable growth the past year and has been looking to expand into new markets. In this process, the management team has participated in Innovation Norway’s Entrepreneurial Marketing New York Program.
The objective of this program has been to evaluate the market potential for its products and services. This spring Jarle Soland (CEO), and Henning Hummervoll (VP Business Development) traveled to New York for two workshops with Innovation Norway. Joining them for the program were also seven other Norwegian start-up companies, looking to expand their business.

The program was so successful that the Board of Directors voted for the strategic decision last week. The employees were informed about the decision by Jarle Soland on Thursday the 20th of June.
” The two successful weeks in New York, combined with thorough evaluation before and after, has led us to make the exciting decision to open a New York Office. We are very confident that BI Builders, and our product Xpert BI, will be a success in the US Market” – Mr. Soland confirms.
The management team will continue to work with Innovation Norway to further develop the Business Plan for the US market.
For the 4th year, BI Builders is a partner at EnergyWorld in Stavanger.
We met with many potential partners and clients. Efficiently providing easy access to data is a crucial part of a digitalization process. There is a particular interest in the access Xpert BI gives to SAP data and integrating SAP data with other data.
Okea held a presentation on their journey from a exploration company to a operating company, which included the need for data availability. OKEA highlighted how this was made possible by Cegal, Avito Consulting, and BI Builders.
Many Data and Analytics Professionals attended Terje Vatle’s session @GartnerDA in London today.
The message was well received and very well aligned with Gartner’s own keynote sessions, focusing on Humans And Machines working together to create business value.
The audience took pictures of Terje’s clever illustrations, and below are a few examples of the session content:
BI Builders is sponsoring the Gartner Data & Analytics Summit in London for the third consecutive year. We are looking forward to meeting new and existing clients as well as receiving valuable input from the wide variety of sessions.
Terje Vatle from BI Builders will also hold a session on Monday 4th March @1:35PM.
Title: The Human Factor in Analytics, Data Lake and DW Projects.
Here he will discuss how the race towards AI and machine learning is increasingly becoming a race towards getting usable data from a growing range of different data sources, with the right quality at the right time. And how traditional ETL and ELT tools do not fully consider the human limitations when handling large data integration projects.
If you are going to the summit, please visit us at our booth number S10 and we look forward to seeing you.
