Continuum has been shortlisted for Digital Growth Business of the Year in the first Digital Jersey TechAwards.
The awards are designed to showcase the achievements of the best in Jersey’s Tech industry and will conclude Jersey’s first TechWeek – a series of seminars by local and global experts in the Internet of Things, Digital Health, and Fintech.
Continuum has seen rapid growth over the past year as businesses increasingly see the value of data and recognise the need for better reporting and analysis.
Founded in 2014 by Dan Hare, Continuum offers organisations a fast-track to accurate data and accessible data analysis, through tools such as Alteryx which can be used by anyone within a business without the need for coding or data science expertise.
Dan said: “It’s a huge honour for Continuum to be shortlisted. We have had one of our busiest years yet and I expect 2019 to be the same. We’ve welcomed two new consultants to the team this year and we’re still looking for new talent.
“Tool such as Alteryx have really changed the playing field for data analysis, taking it out of the exclusive domain of data scientists and IT experts, putting it in the hands of the people in organisations who need it – effectively democratising data analytics.
“Over the past couple of years organisations have massively altered the way they think about data – it’s no longer considered dull and possibly just there for basic functions but is now something extremely valuable that can determine major decisions a business might take, and lead to the business doing things very differently.”
Continuum is the only firm in the Channel Islands specialising in helping organisations use AI tools to improve the way they collect, manage, and interpret the data their organisation generates and holds. Clients come from across finance, legal, professional services, government, media, retail, and many other areas which are vital to Jersey’s economy.
Dan said: “The better these firms can do; the better the Island will do. We give local firms global expertise, and access to a level of tech which would otherwise be out of reach for organisations on this scale. In addition, we work with community organisations on a pro-bono basis helping charities such as Macmillan improve their data systems, so they can offer a better service for cancer patients and their families. This is one of the most rewarding aspects of our business and something we can only now do thanks to the rapid growth we have achieved over recent years.”
Continuum is up against Switch Digital and JT International. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday.
