How we got our Octane boost
Octane Software Solutions was founded by Amendra Pratap who was the Business Intelligence Architect for Macquarie Bank in Sydney Australia. He successfully implemented the end to end TM1 application at Macquarie Bank. With his passion and belief around Business Intelligence, Amendra wanted to offer companies “The Best-of-Breed Services” and “Leading-Edge Consulting Solutions”. Amendra knew firsthand that “One Size Fits All Approach” was not working within organisations and the cost to use consulting companies was exorbitant and a major barrier in scaling up applications. As a result of identifying the gaps within the market and Amendra’s 15+ years of experience as a Business Intelligence Specialist, Octane was established.
