Connected Data Group


Connected Data Group was founded by Erik Fransen and Antoine Stelma in 2017 to make the highly varied and complex landscape of Data & Analytics accessible to customers, and actively support them in making and implementing choices with which the Data & Analytics goals of the customer are achieved or even surpassed.

We have been successfully active in the Data & Analytics field for more than 20 years and innovation has always been central to our owners. Our employees are also enthusiastic about new concepts, technologies and opportunities for our customers.

We support our clients with workshops, short pilots, POCs, training courses and complete implementations where we can also carry out the project management. Characteristic of our approach is making our customer self-sufficient as much as possible during implementation. Through our own training program, we carry all the knowledge that is needed to independently carry out development and management. Typically, we carry the stick all over after 1 or 2 increments of 3-6 months. For clients who prefer to outsource, we work together with various implementation partners to guarantee capacity.

Since 2014 we have been very active with Data Virtualization with the tool TDV and we are implementing this leading solution for a diversity of customers, that want position Data Virtualization in the heart of their ever-growing Data & Analytics landscape. In recent years we have gained a lot of experience in designing and implementing Data Virtualization and we do not only share this knowledge with our clients during implementations: we organize Knowledge Meetings several times a year where we invite customers and interested parties to share knowledge and discuss about Data Virtualization and related topics. Together with our partners we organize off-line and on-line events several times in which the exchange of knowledge and experience is central. We also facilitate regular reference visits to customers so that interested parties can hear their experiences with the TDV tool and Connected Data Group firsthand.
