Senturus offers a highly effective blend of business and technical expertise that, combined with professional project management, delivers tremendous cost savings and business efficiencies. We like to sum it up by saying we are DBAs with MBAs. In some cases, we are DBAs with CPAs. Each one of our lead consultants has deep business knowledge spanning a wide range of industries and business analytics software solutions. Most important, each one has real-life experience as a senior executive in finance, operations, sales or marketing. Enhancing the Senturus knowledge base is a team of specialists: data architects, project managers and report writers who are masters of their respective crafts.
