MakoData Quote

At the University of Liverpool, we wanted to migrate from Oracle Discoverer to a World leading Analytics tool. We engaged with MakoData on their solution. Not only did they make the process painless, we ended up with one tool that managed our operational, complex and strategic reporting. This allowed us concentrate on one skill set.

MakoData Quote

Of critical importance to us when selecting an analytics provider was that they were agile. We needed them to be willing and able to tailor output to our own particular needs as and when those needs arose. And that needed to happen quickly. Not only that, but as we are a shared service we needed to be sure that the solution could cater for scenarios and nuances that were specific to individual customers. MakoData does that for us – they rapidly deliver customisations as they are needed and this is critical to ensuring our team can deliver on our customers data needs. And most importantly we see that turnaround in minutes and hours.”
