Technology In British Columbia: An Infographic

The launch of the 2014 British Columbia Technology Report Card last month was exciting for anyone working in BC tech. This latest report shows how our tech sector has become a real engine for growth and is now one of the largest contributors to the BC economy.

Growing substantially in GDP, industry revenues and wages, it’s a great time to be in the industry and there is plenty to be proud of. However, it’s clear that we still have some way to go to if we are to reach our full potential and catch up with our provincial peers and other international tech sectors. Read More…

Giving Back with TechPong

On October 1, we joined 19 other Vancouver tech companies to battle it out in an epic night of ping pong. It was the first annual TechPong tournament, and the stakes were high: up for grabs were top pong bragging rights, a seriously huge trophy, and the opportunity to give something back to the community in which we live and work. This was ping pong with a purpose. To take part, the team had to raise a minimum of $1000 for charities working in the city’s Downtown Eastside.

Thanks to the overwhelming support from the global D&B team and some Herculean push-up efforts (check out John completing 70 in a row), we smashed it! We raised $6245 in total and topped the TechPong 2014 fundraising leaderboard. Overall, the tech community raised a staggering $72,000 for Downtown Eastside charities as part of the event—an incredible achievement for a great cause. Read More…

We’ve also added a number of new faces to the Vancouver crew and our engineering team is growing rapidly. Know some awesome people? Send them our way! Read More…

5 Cautionary Spreadsheet Tales

When it comes to complex data mashing, spreadsheets should be handled with great care. Errors can easily leak out from spreadsheets, contaminating reports and causing mistakes that can cost companies millions of dollars.

A study by financial modeling company F1F9 found that close to 90 percent of spreadsheet documents contain errors. In fact, the report found, spreadsheets contain errors in one percent or more of all formula cells: in large spreadsheets with thousands of formulas, there will be dozens of undetected errors.

A New Chapter

Today Indicee was acquired by Dun & Bradstreet® (D&B), the world’s leading source of commercial information and insight on businesses. This acquisition marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Indicee as we join the global D&B team to help modernize data delivery services and establish the D&B Cloud Innovation Center in Vancouver.

Over the past seven years, Indicee has been at the forefront of business intelligence (BI) transformation. We started out with a mission to introduce true agility, affordability, and usability to BI. Having watched the industry fail to innovate for almost 15 years—focused instead on winning feature wars and creating bloated, monolithic solutions in the process—our goal was to drastically reduce the cost and complexity of traditional BI.
