Our team has worked together for many years, building planning and supply chain solutions for some of the world’s largest retailers and in some of its most challenging markets. We grew dissatisfied with the state of technology and, more importantly, with how this technology was positioned and deployed to retailers.
With Dataviva we built a new generation of planning and supply chain platform, using the latest in proven, web-scale technologies. We also designed our software and our approach to be pragmatic, based on how retailers need to solve real business problems in the real world, with time and budgetary constraints.
