dScribe - Creating a data democracy
dScribe offers a meta-data solution that aims to make data accessible to everyone within a company. This venture combines a clear framework of actionable KPIs with an overview of all kinds of company meta-data into one platform. Their product ‘The Vault’ allows you to create embedded workflows to streamline governance, centralize reporting and alerts to increase data context, and enhance data quality to improve trust in the numbers.
The idea for The Vault grew out of the Enabling Insights team at delaware into an independent venture. Now, Simon Temmerman, CTO, and Pieter Delaere, CEO, are ready to take this data catalog tool to the next level. “The positive reactions during our pitch at the Dragon’s Den really gave us a boost to expand our solution and further tune its functional benefits and technological innovations to our market. It was a great experience to spar with the delaware experts, optimize our offering and develop our go-to-market together. Thanks to dFund, we can enjoy the support of a lasting partnership, increase the reach of our professional network and tailor our solution better to the specific needs of our joint customers.”
