Cinchy is the enterprise data collaboration platform that introduces a new alternative to the 40-year-old paradigm of buying and building applications. The traditional approach to delivering new technology has resulted in increasingly complex data silos, skyrocketing development costs, and a growing risks to data privacy. Data collaboration represents the radical new paradigm that will enable enterprise and public sector organizations to reclaim their ability to deliver solutions quickly while simultaneously introducing new levels of data protection.

Today, USD $500B is spent annually on buying third-party enterprise software alone. This figure can easily be double when developing in-house apps and systems. As more and more data-centric initiatives like AI, IoT, personalized experiences, automation, and advanced analytics grow in strategic importance, the demand for simplification technologies like data collaboration will only escalate.

Join Dan DeMers for a live demo of Cinchy, the world’s first data collaboration platform. The company’s initial value proposition is to enable its customers to cut their time to market in half right out of the gate, but that’s just the start. Global companies like TD, RBC, and Colliers use Cinchy to accelerate the delivery of new technology projects and save millions in development costs. Leading enterprise organizations choose Cinchy because it’s the answer to not just one use case but to multiple mission-critical challenges, and they achieve this while eliminating the root cause of data fragmentation and data insecurity.

Part thought leadership, part demonstration, you’ll leave with a completely changed outlook on technology delivery, enterprise agility, and data governance. Don’t miss out.

This session is sponsored by Cinchy.
