We have successfully supported numerous clients in the design and implementation of data models and cloud-based IT architectures, including integration into existing data processing processes. fink. also brings extensive experience in concepts, leading in implementation, e.g. through standardized functional and technical data lines as well as in the design of an efficient job network and the development of an operations control center for the CFO & CRO control platform.
