[minti_iconbox icon=”fa-pie-chart” style=”2″ iconcolor=”accent” title=”Elevator pitch”]escent is an IT service company created in 2006 with offices in Belgium and Luxembourg.

Since the beginning our objective has been to create a pure player specialized in business and functional design analysis as well as project management for projects in the financial services.

In 2010, to leverage our analysis expertise we enriched our consulting services with the ‘Efficient Business Analysis’ training program. This program, dedicated to anyone involved in requirements engineering or functional design analysis has since then been delivered to over 800 professionals in Belgium and Luxembourg, making escent the first training provider on that subject in the BELUX.

The constant evolution of the business paradigm makes it crucial to adapt rapidly to changes. Knowing that these changes will impact every steps of an organization, specifically processes and systems, your ability to adapt depends on your capacity to identify gaps and clearly define your business needs. Our consulting services and training program can help you achieve that !

<i class=”fa fa-check”></i> August 2006 : Olivier Duyckaerts, Benoit Cardinael and Olivier Libois, three IT consultants in the financial services area, team up to create a company expert in consulting services and specifically in business and functional design analysis.

<i class=”fa fa-check”></i> March 2009 : Boosted by the success of our Belgian office we decide to open a sister company in Luxembourg, capitalizing on our network of former colleagues and customers.

<i class=”fa fa-check”></i> 2010 : We complete our service offering by designing a training program dedicated to business and functional analysts. Based on the recommendations of IREB® and IIBA®, the two leading organizations promoting the roles of the analysts on projects, we set up our ‘Efficient Business Analysis’ (EBA) training program. The objective is to train our consultants and our customers to business analysis industry best practices.

Our customer base is strong with historical partners following us since the beginning in 2006 and new clients trusting us each year.

Our staff keeps growing both in number and in quality and we are proud of the long term relationship built with our consultants. For those who have left us, some of them became our customers, others moved to another industry but all have made a big jump in their career and remain friends.

Our service offering keeps evolving with industry trends but our business and functional analysis expertize remains however our core business both from a consulting and training view point.

Business analysis methods and tools do change as per the introduction of new ways of managing projects like Agile. Our consultants are continuously trained to new standards with our training material evolving in parallel.

We are confident that the expertise we have built over the years combined with the continuous investment in training our staff to industry best practices will help us grow our customer base in the coming years. From a market perspective we are also convinced that business analysis is too sensitive to be off shored and needs to be dealt with locally.
