Advant joins the AGIC Group

AGIC Group's growth in Data & AI continues, with the announcement of the strategic alliance with ADVANT, one of the most promising Italian Innovative SMEs in the technology field, through the acquisition of an important shareholding. The joint venture, born in December 2020, presents itself on the market of consulting services for medium and large enterprises, as one of the most interesting Italian technology hubs in the field of Business Intelligence, Data Management and Artificial Intelligence, with over 70 resources specialized in technologies, processes and data scientists.

The specific competencies of the Microsoft world (Synapse Workspace, Power Platform, AI) combined with complementary technological areas, such as Oracle, SAP, Tableau, extended to CPM - Corporate Performances Management processes (Tagetik, Hyperion), constitute the strength of the alliance: "A process of cultural osmosis for an integration that will be in favor of the growth of the Group and of the individual companies that compose it, with an increasingly wide and quality offer for our customers in Italy and abroad." (Stefano Volpe, ADVANT CEO).

The extraction of value from corporate information assets, transactional and unstructured, the exponential growth of automatic data generators (IOT), the need to integrate different data sources, the need to synthesize quickly, in real time, gigantic amounts of data (Big Data), are the factors that indicate the area where the major investments of enterprises will be concentrated in the coming years, "Despite the ongoing pandemic, despite the obvious economic crisis, we continue to look to the future with determination, confidence and ambition. For this reason, we are not satisfied with the results achieved, but we want to continue to establish ourselves as market leaders, ready to handle all challenges with the usual passion and competence and with our eyes always turned to the future." (Roberto Cecilia Santamaria, Managing Partner AGIC Group).  

A strategic alliance also talking about numbers. A group with a turnover of more than 20 million, with more than 250 highly specialized professionals, partnership with La Sapienza University and several other Italian Universities in the careful Research and Development activity for the realization of successful projects and products.

Philosophy, vision and common values for AGIC and ADVANT, who have always believed in people and young talents, in constant professional qualification, in improving the quality of life, safety and growth.

The immediate goal is therefore to operate so that the AGIC Group, with the addition of ADVANT, becomes, in Italy and not only, a Microsoft center of excellence in DATA & AI, recognized for its competence, quality and size; a joint venture that represents a booster for investments in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Cognitive and Robotic Process Automation services. The ideal interlocutor for private companies and Public Administration in terms of management and technology consulting aimed at guaranteeing perfect governance of ICT systems.
