Quantum’s beginning

————

Quantum as a company was born out of an idea that the proper management and analysis of information and knowledge in a world of exploding digital traces is, and will increasingly be, a key need in the coming years. The Quantum Business Intelligence Group GmbH was founded in Zürich in 2005 to explore and discover the readiness and practical needs of companies in this new era of big data. Between 2005 and 2008 the company was involved in data mining projects and the realization of customer segmentation strategies. In 2008, Quantum Business Intelligence Services AG was founded as a subsidiary with the aim of offering a comprehensive palette of data science services in a scalable organization and based on the experiences of the first few years.

Before founding Quantum, Ole worked for many years as a physicist at Columbia University and CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. Intrigued by the explosion of networked data in the world, he became interested in applying the scientific culture and methods of particle physics to leverage the opportunities in this new world. After roles at COMIT AG Consulting and Credit Suisse in the area of data mining, Ole founded Quantum Business Intelligence Group GmbH in 2005 and its first spin-off Quantum Business Intelligence Services AG in 2008.
