Know More, Do More
If you're an IBM PureData for Analytics, or an Oracle Data Integrator customer, and if you need help learning, designing, implementing, administering, or supporting either of these Enterprise Information Management technologies, you should be talking to us. It's that simple.

Who we are and what we do
Smart Associates is a global organisation with subsidiaries, partners, and associates operating in the United States of America, Europe, Australasia and South East Asia that collaborate to fulfil organisational Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence requirements. In particular, we specialise in helping our customers successfully design, implement, deploy, administer, maintain, and support Petabyte-scale Enterprise Data Warehouses - typically using Massively Parallel Processing database hardware and software.

The company was founded in 2003, and since then has grown steadily - largely by word of mouth recommendations, partner introductions, and repeat sales to existing customers - to include dozens of consultants and partners with a variety of complimentary, overlapping skill sets, and levels of experience all over the world. We resell IBM and Oracle products, and have a wide range of products and services of our own to offer our clients.

Since being founded, Smart Associates has expanded from purely time and materials style consulting into fixed price solution delivery, outsourced application and database support, education services, and even risk/reward service offerings. We're proud of the fact that despite numerous large scale and technically demanding engagements, often taking responsibility for projects that others had previously failed to successfully deliver, we’ve never had a single failed project or unsatisfied customer - and we intend to keep it that way.

Typically, we prefer to take responsibility for total solution delivery, rather than simply providing individuals at day rates, and assemble whole teams of professionals to meet our customer’s bespoke Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing requirements. Most of our customers are large, ‘blue chip’ corporations - with a particular emphasis on the telecommunications, financial services, and retail verticals.
