About Us

Pontem Innovations

was created out of a shared belief in the ability for organizations to generate better outcomes by tracking, measuring and taking strategic action based on their organizational data.  The world continues to overwhelm organizations with information, however understanding what is truly important remains a challenge.

Our experience with a wide variety of organizations reinforced that using data to inform decision making can make a meaningful difference in business results.  We approach challenges from a business perspective and tailor solutions to business needs.

The tools available to summarize and clarify what is really important are evolving every day.  We strongly believe the use of these tools is not just for the world’s largest organizations; it is possible to be a leader in data innovation regardless of organization size.  Taking advantage of data innovation is a mindset!
