Influential’s Q2 review – 2019

The 2nd quarter of 2019 has been busy with several new clients in Q2 driving growth. A London expansion, new partnerships, new websites and exciting new projects.

Influential Software new clients Q2 2019

With Q1, 2019 getting Influential off to a flying start, it was clear Q2 was always going to be busy for the Influential Software teams.

To facilitate our Influential’s continuing growth, the London teams acquired a second office in the contemporary WeWorks complex near Liverpool street. An exciting space for our teams to work with clients to compliment our Gherkin office suite. Meaning we are already centre-stage for events like London Tech Week.

In SAP Partnership news, our award-winning SAP support team have once again retained SAP Partner Centre of Expertise status. This solid foundation enables us to deliver ever more to our SAP client base. Including new SAP Cloud Platform services and delving into Natural Language Query Analytics.

Being MuleSoft Partners, the SalesForce acquisition of Tableau teases at new opportunities for our clients. Nevermind the wealth of new features in the May MuleSoft AnyPoint Platform release, a huge step-up for businesses looking at API strategies. Just one of the solutions for MuleSoft challenges our teams provide.

Our Dell Boomi partnership continues to grow. Meaning our clients can easily harness Boomi for Financial Services integration.

We’ve also been working closely with partners IBM to further develop our IBM Watson solutions. We’ve also build on our TM1 experience with IBM Planning Analytics – and the rumours of Planning Analytics end-of-life we can gladly state are greatly exaggerated.

Finally, the quarter ended with the new partnership with the rising stars of financial planning Vena Solutions. More to come on that partnership in Q3!
