BIPB Bolster Enterprise QlikView capability with Acquisition of Cockpit Consulting UK and France

Acquisition adds Paris office to BIPB’s growing Capital Markets Data Discovery capability

LONDON, UK – BIPB Limited (formerly Project Brokers Limited) has acquired Cockpit Consulting, a company serving both the UK and French markets with QlikView Data Discovery services. A QlikView partner since 2009, Cockpit Consulting are one of the few QlikView solution providers to have built a field operation in multiple countries. This acquisition expands BIPB’s expertise and capabilities as well as extends the market reach of the organisation.

“Our aim is to build an organisation around our client base, providing Enterprise‐class QlikView solutions and QlikView integration onsite for our clients,” said Charles Radclyffe, Chief Executive Officer of BIPB. “Listening to the needs of many of our existing French clients, such as Total, Societe Generale, and Credit Agricole, as well as multi‐national organisations such as Vodafone and Nestle, we understand that what is important to them is having not just consultants who have strong domain expertise, and technical excellence, but also are from the local market and can operate onsite”.

Tom Robins, Chief Operating Officer and Head of Consulting at BIPB added, “we believe Data Discovery technology is best deployed and integrated using an on‐shore team. We don’t believe that off‐shore or near‐shore teams can understand the client’s demands with sufficient level of detail and respond to the challenges that iterative development brings. Our mission is to build a world‐class consulting team, and our acquisition of Cockpit Consulting will particularly offer our French clients a reassurance that we are committed to supporting their needs”.

“I share BIPB’s vision that Data Discovery technology really can liberate the dream of Data Driven decision‐making,” said Philippe Perret, founder of Cockpit Consulting. “I’m very proud of the organisation I’ve built with Cockpit Consulting and am delighted for the clients who have chosen QlikView to enable data discovery as well as my team who facilitate this. What our clients want is an organisation who have not just the completeness of vision but also the ability to execute. BIPB is that organisation, and that is they key reason why I support the coming together of our two companies”.
