Visting Inspari 2015

A company visit at Inspari has almost become an annual event and this year wasn’t any different. Once again BIA had the pleasure of inviting students to visit Inspari and to get a feel of how a true BI-organization is approaching projects and helping business to become datadriven. Students from IMA were also invited, which gave a diverse group of students visiting this year.

Inspari is one of the leading conculting companies within Business Intelligence and has for the fifth year in a roll been awarded with Børsen’s Gazelle award. Inspari is currently having two offices in Denmark; one is located in Aarhus and one north of Copenhagen. Inspari is a certified tableu partner, QlikView and Microsoft partner.

The visit took place on March 23th 2015 and HR partner, Pia Gaard Thomsen and Martin Kolding Pedersen along with current graduate employee Anne Sofie Svejstrup, welcomed students. The presentations given by the consultants gave a look into Inspari as a workplace and the process of a project. Methods and workflow all seems very familiar as the methods and theory used matched the methods taught in Data warehousing which is a part of 1. semester on cand.merc.BI on AU.

Inspari being one of the leading companies within the field of business intelligence requires the best and fittest minds in the field. This is indeed acknowledged by the company, which has developed the concept of heartwork for all work the employees are undertaking. Heartwork is a mix of heart and brain, both are needed to succeed. As Inspari is stating: “At Inspari we are collecting humans that delivers on the full scale, both workwise but also as a human. There is room for everyone that has the qualities and motivation to perform as a team. We call our culture Heartwork”.

Graduate positions are field every year and some of them as formerly been filled by BIA-members. Anne Sofie Svejstrup as one of the current graduates gave the participants a presentation on the outline of Inspari’s graduate program and how work after graduation at Inspari might look.After a lunch the students had the chance of an unformal talk and mingle with the consultants and a tour in the office of Inspari. In all an unique look into Inspari and the culture of heartwork.

Thank you, Inspari

All participants from BIA and IMA would like to thank Inspari for inviting us to see and experience the company from within.
