An Introduction to Cloud Analytics

Why we started

Cloud Analytics is a startup company established in 2023 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, founded by a group of senior ex-SAP employees and professionals, including Ganapathy Sirgunavel, Manimaran Tannimalai, Hans-Juergen Mikudim, Edward Stephenson, and Dr. Sanath Sukumaran. The company was born out of a desire to meet the unfulfilled requirements of the market – a challenge that many recognise, but few can achieve.

At Cloud Analytics, our mission is laser-focused: to offer expert guidance in digital transformation, cloud consulting, and data analytics on a wide range of platforms, including Google, SAP, Snowflake, Anaplan, Jedox, IBM Cognos, Qlik, and Tableau. Through our team of dedicated consultants, we empower businesses to effectively harness the power of technology, driving growth, and optimising performance. A core strength that sets us apart is our commitment to bridging the knowledge gap in the market. In pursuit of this vision, we take immense pride in our esteemed partnership with Taylors University. Through this collaboration, we have been able to tap into a pool of intelligent, young, and talented individuals, enabling their seamless integration into the market. As an integral part of the Taylor’s Industry Advisory Panel (IAP), we are committed to guiding universities by providing valuable insights into cutting-edge industry trends. Our mission is to equip students with innovative solutions and advanced training, firmly aligned with the evolving needs of the market and industry.

Our team shares a common goal: to serve our customers fully and without the limiting constraints of any large organisation.

At the heart of our approach lies a deep understanding of our clients’ needs and challenges – a principle that defines our commitment to excellence. With a diverse pool of technology experts, we pride ourselves on delivering tailored solutions that consistently exceed expectations. As we continue to grow, our unwavering dedication to bridging market gaps remains firmly rooted in our core values.

Our primary focus is on providing empathetic service that addresses the unique requirements of each customer, no matter how complex they may be. Embracing the digital transformation era, we offer dynamic reporting structures that ensure accessibility anytime, anywhere – even on mobile devices – fostering real-time collaboration and empowering informed decision-making.
