By centralizing the data and building a single source of truth platform, Avenso eliminated the bottleneck of data access for the BI team.

About Avenso

Avenso GmbH operates an art gallery network and online retail for photographic art. Founded in 1999 and based in Berlin, Germany, the company has set out to democratize the art market. Avenso unites two brands in its business – LUMAS and WhiteWhall, both located in Berlin. As an ecommerce business that offers custom-made products in gallery quality as well as a range of online services for high-end photo processing, Avenso depends on current and clean data that is available at all times. Indeed, every department, or roughly 80% of the company, works with data every day.
